do you mean christine lavin?
do you mean these words:
We're never ever bored when we're ridin' in the Ford
Cause we have a Speculator on the dash
It doesn't pay the bills or assist you up the hills
And it isn't gonna save you if you crash
But when you pass a dairy now and then
You find that you are wondering again
What's that little shack by the barn around the back?
You can turn the speculator up to ten
Could it be a shed where the farmer keeps a bed
For the guy who comes to help him with the cows
Betcha it's a shop with a grinder and a strop
For the day they hafta sharpen up the plows
A shanty for the pluckin' of the duck
Or where they turn the cattle into chuck
Or where they find the mule when it's time to go to school
And the farmer's havin' trouble with the truck
Nothin' really like a jalopy on the pike
With the rattle of the window in the door
With the whining of the wheels and the radio spiels
And the clatter of the clutter on the floor
Then we hear a chuckle from the hood
Somethin' isn't workin' like it should
We may have to walk but judgin' from the talk
The Speculator's workin pretty good
Maybe it's the link from the pedal on the blink
Comin' off enough to wiggle and to clunk
Maybe it's the choke or the heating coil broke
Or there's someone entertaining in the trunk
Maybe its a carburetor fire
Burning insulation off a wire
I think a chunka rust coulda twisted in a gust
And be rubbin' on the rubber of the tire
that IS a funny song.....
i'm gonna sing it....
but i've never heard it b4....
so howz about you start us off.....
oh and i think that's a peter berryman tune....
she might have sung it though.....
like i said i never
heard it b4...
so you think it
got on me?......
maybe it's a salve
for the rash that i have
or it could like a block for the sun
but it keeps out all the fun
till ya wash it off with soap
hangin from a rope....
and hope the laughs return....
like the heat from a sunburn...
'cuz she said it was a salve
for the rash that she did have...
but is could be a big place
where the catholics go to school
salve regina is the name
and they learn lots of thangs....
and that might rub off on ya too...
going to a school named salve.....i mean
oh yea that thing in the dash
is a place to keep your cash
once it's rolled up nice and tight
you can push it in the light
and your engine keeps a goin'
on the money that you're throwin'
in the hole upon the dash
it's a place to put your cash!
