Cars are Cars

ŠPaul Simon, released on Hearts and Bones, 1983

.

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

Similarly made. Similarly sold

In a motorcade. Abandoned when they're old

Cars are cars all over the world

.

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

Engine in the front. Jack in the back

Wheels take the brunt. Pinion and a rack

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

.

But people are strangers

They change with the curve

From time zone to time zone

As we can observe

They shut down their borders

And think they're immune

They stand on their differences

And shoot at the moon

.

But cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

Drive 'em on the left. Drive 'em on the right

Susceptible to theft in the middle of the night

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

.

I once had a car

That was more like a home

I lived in it, loved in it

Polished its chrome

If some of my homes

Had been more like my car

I probably wouldn't have

Travelled this far

.

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world

Cars are cars all over the world
