"Wicked And Weird" as written by and Graeme Ross Campbell Charles Wishart Austin....
Driving with a yellow dog, I-95
He's got a smile on his face and big shiny eyes
Up at a decent hour, I never ate yet
Got a little Johnny Cash in the old tape deck
Nothing in the trunk but some base ball gloves
a pair of jumper cables and a set of golf clubs
blanket on the back seat we're in rough shape
sunroof held on with a bit of duck tape
Looking for a gas station, better make a lift
Fill it up with regular, I need to take a piss
sexy girl air freshener, snacks and a pinwheel
top up the fluids, clean the bugs off the windshield
not a care in the world, not a how, and a why
no destination, not a cloud in the sky
back on the road not a moment too soon
dish ran away with some other spoon

wicked & weird I'm a road hog with an old dog
singing slow songs trying to hold on
wicked & weird I'm a rat fich
tryin? to practice doing back flips on your mattress

Hole in the muffler, ghost on the shoulder
cough drops, loose change in the beverage holder
to roll down the window you gotta use a winch
I'm thinking about brushing up on my French
Right there in the glove box, if you should look
You'll find 40 parking tickets
And a copy of the Good Book
Don't bother looking, you'll never find me
I'm starting from scratch and leaving trouble behind me

wicked & weird I'm a road hog with an old dog
singing slow songs trying to hold on
wicked & weird I'm a rat fich
tryin? to practice doing back flips on your mattress

Christ almighty, there's a rattle in the wheel well
Dog fell asleep and man, I don't feel well
But all I need is a half decent breakfast
And I'll be back at it, dirty and reckless

5 o'clock shadow, lips like mud flaps
hands like eagle's talons, eyes like hub caps
The further I get, I keep going faster
Whispers in the wind, cows in the pasture
I have no plans and nothin? to prove either
I eat out of a bag and sleep in a movie theatre

The highway's a story teller, I just write it down
Already been beaten, there's no way to fight it now
I just kick back and keep warm on the cold days
(And) laugh 'cause it ain't like it was in the old days
I figure when I make it to the heavenly gates
They'll be working on my car and playing 78's

wicked & weird I'm a road hog with an old dog
singing slow songs trying to hold on
wicked & weird I'm a rat fich
tryin? to practice doing back flips on your mattress

    General CommentLove this song cuz it's so damn random. There's probably hidden meanings all over the place, but hell, I don't wanna figure em out.

    General CommentIt's pretty easy to figure out - it's just about jumping in a car and driving somewhere, anywhere just for the hell of it, living life on the road.

    General CommentI agree with oball, it's just about life on the road, going nowhere, everywhere, anywhere. Great song even though I don't usually like this kind of stuff.

    General CommentAbsolutely great lyrics and nice vivid description. I mean, it's obvious that the writter doesn't have any deeper meaning. He's just cruisin', no destination in mind, almost broke, just trying to start a new life and leave the old one behind. It's not the end, it's the journey, sort of speak. I believe that his love has just left him for another man: "back on the road not a moment too soon / dish ran away with some other spoon." But without a doubt, it's the music video that is the real gem! Completely random...

    General CommentWell, the meaning is simple, its about a so called road hog. Someone whos got a car and just manages to live on the little money they can come up with, always on the road, enjoying life. I think the lyrics and the meaning are just as simple as that life would be. Its an awesome song, never seen the video though, unfortuantly.

    Um...
    This song has very little figurative speech most of this is just awesome details we don't realize "Cough drops loose change in the beverage holder"
