    Used Cars

  • My sister's in the front seat with an ice cream cone
    My ma's in the black seat sittin' all alone
    As my pa steers her slow out of the lot
    For a test drive down Michigan Avenue
    Now, my ma, she fingers her wedding band
    And watches the salesman stare at my old man's hands
    He's telling us all about the break he'd give us
    If he could, but he just can't
    Well if I could, I swear I know just what I'd do
    Now, mister, the day the lottery I win
    I ain't ever gonna ride in no used car again
    Now, the neighbors come from near and far
    As we pull up in our brandnew used car
    I wish he'd just hit the gas and let out a cry
    Tell `em all they can kiss our asses goodbye
    My dad, he sweats the same job from mornin' to morn
    Me, I walk home on the same dirty streets where I was born
    Up the block I can hear my little sister in the front seat blowin' that horn
    The sounds echoin' all down Michigan Avenue
    Now, mister, the day my numbers comes in
    I ain't ever gonna ride in no used car again
