Cars And Girls
Prefab Sprout Lyrics


Brucie dreams life's a highway too many roads bypass my way
Or they never begin. innocence coming to grief
At the hands of life - stinkin' car thief, that's my concept of sin
Does heaven wait all heavenly over the next horizon '

But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.
Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young '
Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

Life's a drive through a dust bowl, what's it do, do to a young soul
We are deeply concerned, someone stops for directions,
Something responds deep in our engines, we have all been burned
Will heaven wait all heavenly over the next horizon '

But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.
Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young '
Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

Little boy got a hot rod, thinks it makes him some kind of new god
Well this is one race he won't win,
'cos life's no cruise with a cool chick
Too many folks feelin' car sick, but it never pulls in.
Brucie's thoughts - pretty streamers
- guess this world needs it's dreamers may they never wake up.

But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.
Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young '
Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.
Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young ''
Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

Brucie dreams life's a highway too many roads bypass my way
Or they never begin. Innocence coming to grief
At the hands of life - Stinkin' car thief, that's my concept of sin
Does heaven wait all heavenly over the next horizon?

But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.
Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young?
Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

Life's a drive through a dust bowl, what's it do, do to a young soul
We are deeply concerned, someone stops for directions,
Something responds deep in our engines, we have all been burned
Will heaven wait all heavenly over the next horizon?

But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.
Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young?
Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

Little boy got a hot rod, thinks it makes him some kind of new God
Well this is one race he won't win,

Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

I'm 43 years old and I'm smiling with tears that are welling. What a powerful song. When considering my childhood though I went through abject poverty music such as this always got me through. The 80s were a gem boy I tell you. I wish I could return to the 80s with the wisdom and knowledge I've acquired over the years.

I revisited this song, after hearing it on radio! Tears welled -up in this 71 year old eyes remembering!

@jaksongpg it is clear that conservatism and right wing rulers bring back the main Economic KPIs... it is their effective contribution and main message in their propaganda, I’m not so sure they promote well needed shifts to the economy and society, progressiveness is usually seen as subversive and thus end up coming from the other side, the left wing or even the center... anyway each have their pros and cons, thus switching the ruling from
One side to the other is healthy from my humble opinion.... but anyway this is politics so what about Singing? well it has always been an art and thus a way to express one’s feeling about reality of the singers, singing under good or harsh times can produce masterpiece like this one from Prefab Sprout or a frustrated pamphlet like Morrissey when he sings “Margaret on the guillotine”... Democracy they say.

@Cristian Palmer Thatcher was a much needed remedy to socialist policies that were making things worse economically in the 70s. But I'm curious as to why you even think party politics has anything to do with a pop group singing a song?
