Trish Lester: Music & Radio

Plymouth Belvedere

(Trish Lester)
December 16, 2005
Melody & Lyrics by Trish Lester
Believe it or not, this song was inspired by the Foster Farms Chickens. If you're from California, you know who they are, but you may not remember that they drive a blue Plymouth Belvedere.
________________________
I danced the whole night long
At my high school reunion
Sang my new hit song
At my high school reunion
So nothing could go wrong
At my high school reunion
But heading out the door, they saw my
Plymouth Belvedere

CHORUS 1
Plymouth Belvedere
Yeah, a Plymouth Belvedere
Rusty, broken down, that car is
Killin’ my career
But to give it up would devastate my
Poor ol’ daddy dear,
So…… I gotta keep on drivin’ that
Plymouth Belvedere

I sparkled and I shone
At the country club gathering
Never was alone
At the country club gathering
Truly in my zone
At the country club gathering
But then the valet brought around my
Plymouth Belvedere

REPEAT CHORUS 1

I looked so very fine
At the New Year’s Eve party
Felt the world was mine
At the New Year’s Eve party
But after Auld Lang Syne
At the New Year’s Eve party
I drove into the future in my
Plymouth Belvedere

REPEAT CHORUS 1

I maneuvered that ol’ car
To my dear daddy’s funeral
It wasn’t very far
To my dear daddy’s funeral
I wished upon a star
At my dear daddy’s funeral
That he’d forgive my selling…his
Plymouth Belvedere

CHORUS 2
Plymouth Belvedere
Yeah, a Plymouth Belvedere
Rusty, broken down, that car was
Killin’ my career
So I found me a collector, and he loves it, Daddy Dear
Now I drive a brand new Hummer, not that
Plymouth Belvedere.
