All I Wanted Was A Car Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

My buddy Blake was All-State
With dreams of the NFL
Jenny McClain had big brains
She got a scholarship to Yale

Then there was Herschel
Who did two commercials
And he was gonna be a movie star
But all I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car

Had a part time job making chicken for Bob's
At the food court at the mall
I hauled my uncle's trash, I cut my neighbor's grass
And I raked the leaves in the fall

My parents, they were stunned
How this former lazy bum
Suddenly was workin' so hard
But all I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car

Yeah, when I was sixteen
All my dreams revolved around one thing
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car

When I finally got that big hunk of steel
Those four wheels underneath
I went everywhere in it, broke the speed limit
And I even broke in the backseat

Now when I look outside
Sittin' in the drive, it blows my mind to see
An SUV and a Sedan and two kids playing
And I can't believe that they all belong to me

When I caught their momma's eye
In that old thing I used to drive
Never dreamed it would take me this far
All I wanted was a car

When I was sixteen
All my dreams revolved around one thing
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
