  • Song Lyrics:
    As I was motivatin'
    Back in town
    I saw a Cadillac sign
    Sayin', 'No Money Down'
    So I eased on my brakes
    And I pulled in the drive
    Gunned my motor twice
    Then I walked inside
    Dealer came to me
    Said, 'Trade in your Ford
    And I'll put you in a car
    That'll eat up the road
    Just tell me what you want
    And then sign on that line
    And I'll have it brought down to you
    In a hour's time'

    I'm gonna get me a car
    And I'll be headed on down the road
    Then I won't have to worry
    About that broken - down, ragged Ford

    'Well, Mister, I want a yellow convertible
    Four - door de Ville
    With a Continental spare
    And a wide chrome wheel
    I want power steering
    And power brakes
    I want a powerful motor
    With a jet off - take
    I want air condition
    I want automatic heat
    And I want a full Murphy bed
    In my back seat
    I want short - wave radio
    I want TV and a phone
    You know I gotta talk to my baby
    When I'm ridin' alone'

    Yes, I'm gonna get that car
    And I'm gonna head on down the road
    Yeah, then I won't have to worry
    About that broken - down, ragged Ford

    'I want four carburetors
    And two straight exhausts
    I'm burnin' aviation fuel
    No matter what that cost
    I want railroad air horns
    And a military spot
    And I want a five - year guarantee
    On everything I got
    I want ten - dollar deductible
    I want twenty dollar notes
    I want thirty thousand liability'
    That's all she wrote

    I got me a car
    And I'm headed on down the road
    No money down
    I don't have to worry
    About that broken - down, ragged Ford
    (I B Emerson)
