Cledus went down to Florida, he was lookin for a car to steal.
He was in a bind, ten
payments behind so the bank repod his wheels.
When he came across this old man down at Jalopys
Used Car lot.
Then Cledus jumped up on the top of one and said:
"Fella, let me tell you
"Im not gonna be proud of the deed Im 'bout to do.
"With no time to spare, I
gotta be somewhere,
"So Im gonna steal a car from you.
"Now Ive seen your selection here
and I admit the pickin's are few.
"I know the Pinto's gold but consider it stoled,
got a show to do. "
The man said: My name's Jalopy," as he gave an evil grin.
'Cos he knew
that car wouldnt get too far 'fore the motor blew up again.
Cledus, you better hit the
road if youre gonna be a star.
The shows way up in Georgia and youre opening up for Garth.
Your future's riding on this shiny Pinto painted gold.
And if youre late, its Jeff
Oh, gosh a Pinto, my foot. It drives more like a horse and buggy. Durn.
Cledus said: "No way in heck youre gonna open up that show."
Then fire flew from the
manifold as his right front tyre blowed.
And he pushed that wreck across the street and man was
And he tried and tried to start her up but it sounded something like this.
Come on. Come on.
Oh Gawd, Im in a mess what am I gonna do.
My one big shot for Garth
Oh durn it.
When Cledus opened up the hood he said: Ill be a son of a gun.
And didnt long to figure out why the heck it wouldnt run.
