If my body was a car,
I’d trade it in for a newer model.
For I think I need a towbar,
From the dents I’ve endured in battle.

My paint job is a little dull,
My headlights are out of focus.
I’m no longer very mobile,
My body’s an old aged carcass.

My bodywork’s full of varicose scratches,
I’m in need of cosmetic work.
My brakes make nasty screeches,
That stops me with a jerk.

My traction is not as graceful,
I slip and slide and skid.
I have to drive quite careful,
Never mind what weather I’m in.

It takes me hours to reach a speed,
My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
I need some TLC to succeed,
And nice accessories that are costly.

Every time I sneeze or cough,
My radiator leaks.
My exhaust backfires a lot,
And my tires now tend to squeak.

Yes, if my body was a car,
I’d trade it in for sure.
I think I’d choose a jaguar,
With a body all slick and grandeur!

I sent this to my brother-in-law who attended Woodstock. He told his parents he was going camping!

Not an outright lie🙄

I thought that if you remember Woodstock, you were NOT there. 
I can’t remember if I was there or not 😄

I share this w/ my sister every now & then...

We were the 2 youngest & grew up w/ the older sib's music...

She still has the 45 that someone bought...

We played this over & over & over 🤣

Back in the 90’s I remember someone did a remix on this song.  It wasn’t my type of music but was my teenage son’s at the time.   I started singing along and knowing I didn’t know the group, he surprisingly asked the obvious question. I went on to inform him that I’ve been listening to this song since the Tokens did it in the 60’s!
