Cadillac Coupe DeVille

Detroit Iron, two tons flyin’
Powering up hill
Jet black, get back Jack
Cadillac Coupe de Ville

Vows to keep, it made men weep
A dream you couldn’t kill
Super wide, a nation’s pride
Cadillac Coupe De Ville

Lean, obscene, a mean machine
A boyhood’s dream fulfilled
The urge you feel in solid steel
Cadillac Coupe De Ville

Road dog, gas hog,
A wish that’s built to thrilll
This road warrior never looked sorrier
Cadillac Coupe De Ville

Freeway, Leeway
Send the kids the bill
Broken trust, Creeping rust
Cadillac Coupe de Ville

It pulled the load, it ruled the road
But now it’s sitting still
Off the track, with no attack
Cadillac Coupe de Ville

This is your Daddy’s Caddy, laddie
