Rebecca Troon original - Everyone loves to sing along

lyrics

Living in my car, living in my car, here on the dark side of town,
well the engine broke, so I don't get far, I reckon you could say I settled down (chorus)

Sometimes in the winter it gets mighty cold, but the rain makes a beautiful sound, falling on the hood, tapping on the roof, and splashing on the pavement all around

chorus

I've got a solar oven on the dashboard here to heat up food that I found,
dining's in the front, bedroom's in the back, and the radio makes a happy sound

chorus

Well my neck gets stiff and my hip gets sore until I get up and move em all around, I got a piece of rug to stretch out on, so I don't do my yoga on the ground

chorus

Now I cover all the windows and lock all the doors at night when my fears get strong, when I wake up in the morning and I'm still here, then I start to hum a little song

chorus

Scared of getting tickets for sleeping in my car, god knows I hate doing time, but some rich lawyers in the land of the free decided being broke was a crime
