These Are a Few Things You'll Find in My Car

3 years ago

(Sung to the tune of "Raindrops on Roses" from The Sound of Music)

Dust on the dashboard and licks on the windows,
The smell when you enter reminds you of hobos,
Parents whose standards have sunk down too far,
These are a few things you’ll find in my car.

Booty and craisins and old rotting apples,
A towel for the dog when he’s wet and bedraggled,
An empty Coke can in each cup holder,
These are a few things you’ll find in my car.

Five water bottles but only two children,
To do lists from August of two-thousand and ten,
Band-aids and a CD by Bruno Mars,
These are a few things you’ll find in my car.

When the kids can’t find sunglasses,
Or their winter hats,
I simply remember that they’re in my car,
and then I don’t feel so bad.

Scratches on the door from parking at Target,
Coupons for Q-tips and a free Hot Pocket,
Papers beneath a melted chocolate bar,
These are a few things you’ll find in my car.

One lonely fruit snack that is orange-flavored,
Small little boxes that held party favors,
A baggie with wrappers from granola bars,
These are a few things you’ll find in my car.

When I can’t find my own wallet,
And I’ve searched like mad,
I simply remember that it’s in my car,
And then I don’t feel so bad.
