MAYBELLINE

(Berry / Fratto / Freed) As I was motivatin' over the hill I saw Maybelline in a Coupe deVille Cadillac rollin' on an open road But nothin' out-run my V8 Ford Cadillac doin' about ninety-five Bumper to bumper rollin' side to side Maybelline, why can't you be true Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true You've started back doin' the things you used to do Well the Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more It done got cloudy and started to rain I tooted my horn for the passing lane The rain water poured up under my motor hood I knew that were doin' my motor good Maybelline, why can't you be true Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true You done started back doin' the things you used to do ------ harmonica ------ Well now, the heat went down and the motor cooled down And that's when I heard that highway sound Cadillac lookin' like a ton of lead A hundred and ten a half-a-mile ahead Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill Maybelline, why can't you be true Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true You done started back doin' the things you used to do
