lyrics

6. Old Dog Fast Car

Hot girl in a red top, blonde hair in a braid
Red roses are blooming, nineteen in the shade
Just give me the barmaid and no-one gets hurt
I'll give you my credit card, I'll give you my shirt

The things the mind takes hold of, the body too
An old dog chasing a fast car – if he caught up
with it, would he know quite what to do?

There's something in New York, there's something
in Rome. There's something all over the place, by
the scent of my phone. Well I ain't going easy – I
want back to the feast, shake of this collar, slip the
leash (swipe RIGHT...)

The things the mind takes hold of, the body too
Like an old dog chasing a fast car - if he caught up
with it, would he know quite what to do?

There's life in this mongrel yet, new tricks to be learned
Plenty of fuel to be lit, dry tinder to burn
So hand over the barmaid, and the keys to that car
I'm sure it'll come back to me when I've remembered
where all the levers are...

The things the mind gets hold of, the body too
An old dog in a fast car - head out the window,
looking for mischief to do. Ah, the things the mind
takes hold of, the body too, like that old dog driving
his fast car - head out the window, looking for more
mischief to get up to. Head out the window, baby,
looking for more mischief to get up to...
