about

Chronicles of owning my first vehicle. Many of the events in this story are actually true, or at least inspired by true events, namely, having my tires slashed twice, a smoking radiator, and needing pliers to keep the back hatch open. When my jeep finally did die, I bought a used car, which also died nine months later. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

lyrics

Ride Like Mine

Verse 1
Cruising down the street my Jeep when it’s cold
When all of a sudden smoke then rose
So I get out that bitch thinking it's finna explode
But no, I’m just holding up traffic;
If I stay any longer all the folks behind me are not going to have it
So I go in the back then pry the door open holding it up with pliers
I should have applied the WD 40
[Sigh] It’s 3:40; I told my friends I'd be there at 3 to hang out
I drove my Jeep Cherokee carefully but it's too far a drive to Shane’s house
It's late now I picture them laughing
Go ahead and just laugh
“Who cares if that thing has enough gas,
Can that ratchet have painted piece of crap make it to the gas station?”

Chorus
You know that you want…don’t you want…
Don't you want like mine?
You know that you want…don’t you want…
Don't you want like mine?

Verse 2
Have you ever had your tires slashed?
Not because the ride or riders were white or black
But just because no one likes your ass?
Well, I sure have – twice at that,
And I never managed to find out if they knifed or stabbed it to do the damage
Bonfire at Port Aransas? I’d better pass if that's where sand is
Sometimes, I just can't stand it
But as much as I say this, I shouldn't take these things for granted
Who cares if it's high maintenance?
I don't really care, I'll go anywhere I need to go in my vehicle
Even with a broken bass and broken brakes going 18
Slowing safely until I'm going 5 on Ocean Drive
And I still got a freaking ticket for an indecent lemon

Verse 3
Some days I'm amazed that it even passed inspection
In the first place well, except the fashion section
And the fact that the doors don't unlock leaves bad impressions –
Try the right side instead of the left or whatever
But I'm going to drive no questions asked, that's my prize possession
I've learned a prideful lesson about my Jeep with 3 different rims
I treat it a gem because one man's trash is another man's treasure
But as soon as I get some cash, I'm going to find something much damn better –
Something that at least carries four because my Jeep has been through enough shit
But until then, fuck it - even though my wheels barely roll
I'm blaring both of my stereos rolling through the neighborhood very slow
Until the whole area code points and yells, “Yo, there he goes!”

Say hello to my black Jeep - she's the only one I've got
But not for long…
Say hello to my black Jeep - she's the only one I've got
But not for long…
Say hello to my black Jeep - she's the only one I've got
But not for long…
Say hello to my black Jeep - she's the only one I've got
But not for long…
