On Being Stranded in Cub Foods' Parking Lot during the New Year's Eve Snowstorm

always always always have a bicycle in your car
for times the car won't take you home after you've gone thar'
for when you hear that click click click and plan to go plantar
always always always have a bicycle in your car

always always always have a bicycle in your car
the motor quits and there ya sits but in the rear mirrar
surprise! you look around and realize you've got a spar'
always always always have a bicycle in your car

always always always have a bicycle in your car
tho' children point at you and say that lady is bizarre
ya ride off through the snowfall 'cuz the parts store isn't far
always always always have a bicycle in your car

always always always have a bicycle in your car
tho' AAA will rescue you not wanting a dinar
don't care if it's a Honda or an XKR Jaguar
always always always have a bicycle in your car


and have your cell phone with you and next time when the guy says you need a new battery clamp right away, get one right away

The XKR Jaguar doesn't seem like a very good car,
it would be too hard to get the bicycle in thar,
but always, always, always made me har,
and sounds like good advice for the New Yar!
