The machine of a dream
Such a clean machine
With the pistons a-pumpin'
And the hubcaps all gleam

When I'm holding your wheel
All I hear is your gear
With my hand on your grease gun
Mmm, it's like a disease, son

I'm in love with my car
Got a feel for my automobile
Get a grip on my boy racer roll bar
Such a thrill when your radials squeal

Told my girl I'll have to forget her
Rather buy me a new carburetor
So she made tracks saying this is the end now
Cars don't talk back they're just four-wheeled friends now

When I'm holding your wheel
All I hear is your gear
When I'm cruisin' in overdrive
Don't have to listen to no run-of-the-mill talk jive

I'm in love with my car (I'm in love with my car, love with my car)
Got a feel for my automobile
I'm in love with my car (I'm in love with my car, love with my car)
String back gloves in my automo-love

    General CommentLove the rhythm on this. Me and my mate were guilty of air drumming to this in chemistry lessons back in school. Great live as well. Roger's got a great rock voice and it fits this song so well

    General CommentI don't belive this, you stupid idiots!
    If you don't like Queen and their music then stay away from Queen topic, stupid fucks!


    This is simply a song about Roger's passion to cars. He loves machines and speed. That's it.
    Great song, love the Rogers rough voice...

    General CommentHeh, I know, that's why I had to put that it was about Freddie getting AIDS! :P I just wanted to make fun of all of those evil people that think that every Queen song is either a gay anthem or about Freddie getting AIDS!

    General CommentLol. It was written not only before Freddie got AIDS, but before anyone knew about AIDS and it was written by Taylor anyway.

    Bril song. Great for shouting along to.

    General Commentexactly, before it was annoying the way everyone did that, but now it's annoying when people say it to take the piss and other evil people don't get it. anyway i think there is definately a sexual subtext to this song gay or straight. what with all the pumping pistons or whatever. not that i've ever heard it, i just liked the title.
