* Maybellene, why can't you be true? Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true You've
started back doing the things you used to do
As I was motivatin' over the hill I saw Maybellene in a coup de ville A Cadillac a-rollin' on the open road, Nothin' will outrun my V8 Ford The cadillac doin' 'bout ninety-five, She's bumper to bumber rollin' side by side
The cadillac moved to a hundred and four got hot and wouldn't do no more It got cloudy and started to rain Tooted my horn in the passing lane The rain water blowin all under my hood I knew that was doin' my motor no good (* / *)
The motor cooled down, the heat went down And that's when I heard that highway sound The Cadillac a-sittin' like a ton of lead A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still And I caught Mabellene at the top of the hill (*)
You've started back doing the things you used to do.
