Almost Born in a Studebaker

I was almost born in a Studebaker / I was almost born in a Studebaker

Santa Ana to Oceanside / foggy night, heck of a ride

I was almost born in a Studebaker

Ma’s big brother is behind the wheel / Dad’s overseas at the war, bad deal

Ma’s big brother is my Uncle Russell / Ma says “hustle, Russell hustle!

I can’t have G.A. in a Studebaker”

there’s the hospital / right over there

we make it there / five minutes to spare

Uncle Russell looks around the waiting room

then he sits down in a chair

starts talking to a guy who’s smoking

“how;s it going there, buddy?”

I was almost  born in a Studebaker / I was almost born in a Studebaker

Dad’s a sarge, Marine Corps / he gets home safe from the war

we all ride around in the Studebaker

we all ride around in the Studebaker
