Underneath My Car Seat

Underneath my car seat
There's a secret hiding place
Where all my coins and cash go
To save from losing face.

It falls out of my pockets
And tumbles to the floor
And lies in silent splendour
As I open up the door

There are crumbs and balls of paper
And lots of bits of fluff
I sometimes sit and wonder
Whence comes this awful stuff.

But from time to time itís different
I think you ought to know
This is where I put my secrets
The ones that make me glow

There's a present from my lover
A book of poetry
That I can read at leisure
And dream of being free.

A pair of silk pyjamas
And stockings made of lace
A glove she dropped one Friday
That I hold up to my face.

There's a ticket from the movies
And a note she sent my way
Saying that she loved me
But had to go away.

For she knew that I was hopeless
A sorry sight indeed
Sitting in my car alone
My head between my knees

But this is where I feel my best
With things I know will please;
When love is gone and Iím all alone
I will need these memories.

Underneath my car seat
There's a secret hiding place
Where all my coins and cash go
To save from losing face.

It falls out of my pockets
And tumbles to the floor
And lies in silent splendour
As I open up the door

There are crumbs and balls of paper
And lots of bits of fluff
I sometimes sit and wonder
Whence comes this awful stuff.

But from time to time itís different
I think you ought to know
This is where I put my secrets
The ones that make me glow

There's a present from my lover
A book of poetry
That I can read at leisure
And dream of being free.

A pair of silk pyjamas
And stockings made of lace
A glove she dropped one Friday
That I hold up to my face.

There's a ticket from the movies
And a note she sent my way
Saying that she loved me
But had to go away.

For she knew that I was hopeless
A sorry sight indeed
Sitting in my car alone
My head between my knees

But this is where I feel my best
With things I know will please;
When love is gone and Iím all alone
I will need these memories.
