After the Cordoba got repossessed

Still needed a car I guess

Went almost full circle

Buying a ‘67 Ford Galaxie 500

Was a pretty nice old car

Till a stop sign I did blow through

And hit another car, it did then lose its finesse…


Robins egg blue, much like this font

Even with the front end wrecked

I remained with it quite nonchalant

Lost my freedom not long after its purchase

Wouldn’t have if I had learned how

To stay less than totally erect…


After three years I had but seven more

But I won’t of you with the details bore

I had only cars I could personally afford

No more daddy to pay or co-sign

No matter how much I did of him implore…

You surely owned more cars so far than most people. Now you have your boat. Are you happy with that. And you have Rufuz too, which I don't have my cocker Joy anymore. She is in doggie heaven, miss her. Take care of Rufuz, maybe a special treat today, he has been so good, hasn't he?
