Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You've started back doing those things you used to do

As I was motorvatin' over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a Coup de Ville
A Cadillac rollin' on the open road
But nothing will outrace my V8 Ford
The Cadillac doin' 'bout ninety-five
Bumper to bumper and side by side

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You've started back doing those things you used to do

The heat cooled down, the motor cooled down
That's when I heard that highway sound
The Cadillac sittin' like a ton of lead
Hundred and ten half a mile ahead
The Cadillac lookin' like it's standin' still
And I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You've started back doing those things you used to do

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You've started back doing those things you used to do
