maybelline lyrics – gene vincent

oh, maybelline
why can’t you be true?
oh, maybelline
why can’t you be true?

you’ve started back doin’
the things you used to do

as i was motivatin’ over the hill
i saw maybelline in a coupe de ville
cadillac rollin’ on an open road
but nothin’ outrun my v8 ford
cadillac doin’ about ninety-five
bumper to b*mper rollin’ side to side

maybelline
why can’t you be true?
oh, maybelline
why can’t you be true?

you’ve started back doin’
the things you used to do

well,
the cadillac moved to ahead of the ford
a ford got hot and wouldn’t do no more
it just that time, it started to rain
i tooted my h*rn for the p*ssin’ lane
the rain water poured up
under my motor hood
i knew that were doin’ my motor good

maybelline
why can’t you be true?
oh, maybelline
why can’t you be true?

you’ve started back doin’
the things you used to do

motor cooled down, the heat went down
that’s when i heard that highway sound
cadillac seemin’ like a ton of lead
a hundred and ten a half a mile ahead
cadillac lookin’ like it’s sittin’ still
i caught maybelline at the top of the hill

maybelline
why can’t you be true?
oh, maybelline
why can’t you be true?

you’ve started back doin’
the things you used to do
