The Stanley Steamer

Chorus 1:

Get your veil and get your duster;
Get the yen for goggles when the wind's a guster;
Keep your Hubbard gown
Firmly belted down
When you're out in your Stanley Steamer.
In a gale we never fluster,
'Cause we're told we get that old familiar luster;
If you're dressed in style
Ev'ryone will smile
When you're out in your Stanley Steamer.
Honk, honk!
Honk, honk, honk!
The donkey used to have his charm;
But he's looking at us with alarm,
For it looks like he's back to the farm.
But if you fail with your combustor,
Then your speed is gonna need a new adjuster;
And you must be just,
Just the one we trust;
Or we won't step inside
No, we won't take the ride
That you plan in your Stanley Steamer,
That you plan in your Stanley Steamer,
In your Stanley Steamer automobile.

Chorus 2:

There she sat alone, dejected,
For a flat was something that was not expected;
She began to sigh,
Then she caught the eye
Of a man in a Stanley Steamer.
It was not that she was stupid,
Not the shot she thought she got from Mister Cupid;
It began to rain
Then along the lane
Came the man in the Stanley Steamer.
Chug, chug!
Chug, chug, chug!
A hug was fin'lly hers at last;
She forgot the sky was overcast,
And what happened is part of her past.
But she vowed that she was nervous,
So the crowd was not allowed to see the service;
Now they both are hitched,
And she's glad she switched
From a thing she used to like:
A deflated tandem bike,
To the man in the Stanley Steamer,
To the man in the Stanley Steamer,
In the Stanley Steamer automobile.

Chorus 3:

You're a sight to make me tingle;
You're a dish to make me wish I wasn't single.
Never mind the jokes,
They're just jealous folks
'Cause we're out in your Stanley Steamer.
If you find you're not inventive,
Then I'll bet you're gonna get a new incentive,
And you'll lose your heart
On the day you start
Goin' out in your Stanley Steamer.
Honk, honk!
Honk, honk, honk!
The tandem bike has had its day;
If you're riding one you'll find that they
Poke along in an obsolete way.
We're full of bright anticipation,
Like a child who has a wild imagination;
And we wanna ride,
Wanna ride inside
Of the latest motor deal,
Wanna sit behind the wheel
With the man in the Stanley Steamer,
With the man in the Stanley Steamer,
In the Stanley Steamer automobile.
