Combing clorinated hair
(Still an adventure)
Counting bad deals
(Well, some things could be better)

Making tracks
Autum's nearly over
On the road together

Sunshine was so bright
Sleeping side by side
Prairie strolls to waterholes
Buzzing with dragonflies

Pit stop for junk and coffee
Petrol and dynamite displays outside
Idle, swimming and economical
And then we turn out the light

Sunshine was so bright
Sleeping side by side
Prairie strolls to waterholes
Buzzing with dragonflies

You call shotgun and we laugh as children
Struggles with "what's your side?"
Girl

Stealing motel condiments
And I'll eat them and talk
Long weekend thrill

Building onto someplace great
To contests on the radio
Radio, radio

Tell you that you'll think it through
'Cause road trip or not, I believe it's you

That 40 has gone to your head
Let's talk about it when we're straight again
Hush hush, baby

I don't want anything to cause us any harm
Watch for the medicated mentions inside the drugs
Late afternoon driving in your car
On our way back home

La, la, la

    General Commenti love this song. its so sweet.

    i guess its about them on the road and the fun they have. i think "That 40 has gone to your head" is kind of making fun of the fact that 40 bucks is so huge to them.

    i think its trying to draw attention to all the small things in life that you'll always remember later on but you dont even realise how much they mean when its happening.
