I've got a car fulla lotion
And a New York debutante
About to hit the open road
And put some air in her bouffant
Air in her bouffant
She's got a body like Twiggy and a
Voice like Carol Burnette
And with it says, "Here's my tattoo, baby,
have you seen it yet?
[Seen it yet?]
It's a faux anklet."
Before I get too far, let me
Tell you how it all began
On the Upper West Side at
Le Chez Parisienne
[Use the can]
I stopped to use the can.
While I was on my way out I seen this
Chiquita give me a glance
[She gave him the goo-goo eye]
So I just strolled on over and said,
"Baby you wanna dance?"
I couldn't stand the romance
Now I can see clearly that she
Wants to be my New York debutante
[Her ugly voice tells me that she will dance
With me right here in this froofee restaurant]
[[Ain't nothing ugly 'bout the
Rest of my debutante]]
[[[It don't matter that my car is
Blocking a fire hydrant]]]
Right about that time I seen her
Daddy exercising some clout
[Her daddy came charging]
He said "Now look here, son,
you had best be getting out."
That's what he started to shout.
I told him, 'Look here, Ashley,
I just stopped in to take a pee,
[Micturate or urinate, shake the weasel,
drain the main vain, take a piss, wee]
But now that Phoebe's in the picture
There's just one thing that I can see:
[How did he get past the ma”tre d'?]
I'll take your daughter with me.'
So we just split from that joint
And left the whole damn isle behind
And now we're headed down south
To find somewhere to unwind
Get her old man out of mind
Looks like I've caught us up on the story,
So here we are:
Boy stops in to take a leak and meets girl.
[Girl meets the man she's been
Waiting for to set her free.]
Now they're in a lotion filled car.
And this life chapter is ending;
I'm goin' nowhere as a lotion tzar,
[This old car]
But this old Brat should get us far.
I've liberated her from her posh but empty
Life as a New York debutante
[She wasn't made for life in any high society;
She needs something aberrant]
[[I'm having a good drive with my
New York debutante]]
[[[She needs an adventure, my
New York debutante]]]
We got a long way to go before we
Get to New Orleans
But for the moment we're just happy
Drivin' with our dreams
[With our dreams]
And gettin' some grub in Queens
It's time to unload some lotion after
We finish our meal
And so then Johnny Lee and I,
We do cut a deal
[Getting a steal]
He's really getting a steal
Well, now I'm pumped fulla soju and so
Phoebe's in Brat command
And I'm just navigating us
The best I can
[Road as land]
And all road is our land
Lotion dilettante, teenage debutante
Nubile sycophant, inguinal commandant
I'm her tough guy guardant
And she's my little adjuvant
[Yeah, tough guy guardant]
Affaire mas piquant, Asian intoxicant
I-95 accelerant, neuf et soixant
Have some Asti Spumant(e), ˆ votre sant(Ž)
A tuneful maison du sant(e)
And some lotion fragrant.
