Honkin' honkin' down the gosh darn highway
Tryin' tryin' to get past them cars
Got a got a little date with an angel
She's the one that said she'd go with me
To see a little movie tonight
(Honk honk honkin' down the highway)

Her folks told me that she's lonely
And she loves me only
She's used to running away from guys

Prayin' prayin' that she'll hold me tight (hoo!)
And hopin' hopin' that she'll see the light
Who cares if I gotta spend my money
Even if I have to act funny
To go and steal her heart away
(Honk honk honkin' down the highway)

Take it one little inch at a time now
'Til we're feelin' fine now
I guess I've got a way with girls

Honk honk honkin' down the highway
Honk honk honkin' down the highway
Honk honk honkin' down the highway
Honk honk honkin' down the highway
Honk honk honkin' down the highway

Take it one little inch at a time now
'Til we're feelin' fine now
I guess I've got a way with girls

Prayin' prayin' that she'll hold me tight (yeah)
(Honk honk honkin' down the highway)
And hopin' hopin' that she'll see the light
(Honk honk honkin' down the highway)
Who cares if I gotta spend the night
(Honk honk honkin' down the highway)

    General CommentI find it amusing.

    "Her folks told me that she's lonely
    And she loves me only"

    Her parents said that? Imagine having your parents tell someone you fancied that you're lonely and that you love them?
