Maybellene, why can`t you be true,
oh, Maybellene, why can`t you be true,
you`ve started back doin` the things you used to do.
As I was motivatin` over the hill,
I saw Maybellene in a Coup de Ville,
A Cadillac a-rollin` on an open road,
Nothin` will outrun my V-8 Ford,
The Cadillac doin` about Ninety Five,
She`s bumper to bumper, rollin` side by side.
The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford,
The Ford got hot, wouldn`t do no more.
It then got cloudy and started to rain.
I tooted my horn for a passin` lane.
The rain water blowin` all under my hood,
I knew, that was doin` my motor good
The motor cooled down, the heat went down,
And that`s when I heard that highway sound.
The Cadillac asittin` like a ton of lead,
A hundred an ten, half a mile ahead.
The Cadillac lookin` like it`s sittin` still,
And I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill.
