"Cartrouble" as written by and Adam Ant....
Have you ever had a ride in a light blue car?
Have you ever stopped to think
who's the slave and who's the master?
Have you ever had trouble with your automobile?
Have you ever had to push push push push?
Car Trouble, oh yeah!

You might have seen them very busy at the
weekend oh!
Licking and polishing the beep-beeps into shape
and then its proudly up the M1, M2, M3
and keep your feet off the upholstery Ronnie
Car Trouble oh yeah!

Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
You don't need anything after an ice cream
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, car, car, cartrouble, cartrouble

I used to sit at home silently and wonder
why all the preference is polishing the chrome
while all the mothers and the sisters and their babies
sit and rot at home


Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
You don't need anything after an ice cream
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, car, car, cartrouble, cartrouble

And remember this
You don't need anything after an ice cream

Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble
Car, car, cartrouble

    General CommentI reckon it's about how people can become obsessed with their cars and that the said cars can be an absolute nightmare to use and look after. Don't think these lyrics are quite right though.

    General CommentDon't think this song is about cars at all. There is definitely a double meaning... with lyrics about having a "ride" and not requiring anything after an ice cream... I'm sure Adam's mind was on other matters!
