Car Song

Constant Pain 
(to the tune of King of Pain, with apologies to The Police)

Car-on-Trailer

There’s a little black hole in my car today 
It’s the same old car as yesterday 
It’s a black hole right in the parking lot 
It takes all my cash and it just won’t stop.

I’ve been stuck here before, out in the pouring rain 
With the belts turning circles, they confound my brain 
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this drain 
But it’s my destiny to be in constant pain

There’s a little black hole in my car today 
      (it’s my car out there) 
It’s the same old car as yesterday 
      (it’s my car out there) 
It’s a black hole right in the parking lot 
      (it’s my car out there) 
It takes all my cash and it just won’t stop 
      (it’s my car out there)

I’ve been stuck here before, out in the pouring rain 
With the belts turning circles, they confound my brain 
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this drain 
But it’s my destiny to be in constant pain

It’s a fossil that’s painted that they call my car 
      (it’s my car out there) 

And I know well that it won’t take me far 
      (it’s my car out there) 
It’s a drain on my funds but don’t make a fuss 
      (it’s my car out there) 
When it falls apart I just take the bus. 
      (it’s my car out there)

I’ve been stuck here before, out in the pouring rain 
With the belts turning circles, they confound my brain 
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this drain 
But it’s my destiny to be in constant pain

There’s a bolt on the block that keeps falling out 
It’s costly fix, there’s shadow of doubt. 
I love my 3-5-6, but oh my Lord! 
It’s a rich man’s toy that I just can’t afford 

Constant pain.

I’ve been stuck here before, out in the pouring rain 
With the belts turning circles, they confound my brain 
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this drain 
But it’s my destiny to be in constant pain

Constant pain
Constant pain 
Constant pain 

My Porsche is constant pain.
