When I’m gone now, bury me with my car.
When I’m gone, bury me with my car.
Cos if anywhere is wherever I
end up when I’m gone,
I’m gonna need my ride to get around.
So please, please, bury me with my car.

Ancient Egypt, Cheops’ boat.
Back in Rome they had chariots.
China’s first emperor was buried with his army.
What’s a cowboy without his horse?
In America, in America, they’ll bury us with our cars.

'72 Buick rolling by,
pumping down Honda,
chewing up the road.
Double-decker Cadillac rolling up high
like a king upon his throne.
Last thing I wanna see before I die
is a flash of 22-inch chromes in my eye.
In America, in America, they’ll bury us,
Yes, in America, in America, they’ll bury us with our cars.

    General CommentHe was learning about the biggest Egyptian pyramid... how it was built... something to do with huge trees being cut down... and something about how the ancient Egyptians were buried with their most prized possessions... so he wrote this song except incorporated our current culture.
