My Sister’s Pinto

my sister’s Pinto was yellow in color / like a lemon, like a submarine

she drove it through the car-wash every Saturday/ had to keep that Pinto clean

(chorus) my sister’s Pinto, my sister’s Pinto / look at her go, whew Lord, whew Lord

my sister’s Pinto, my sister’s Pinto / that baby was made by Ford

now my sister’s Pinto had three on the floor / it was a lot of fun to drive

buzzer told her to strap in / they had to keep my sister alive

(chorus)

now my sister’s Pinto was almost paid for / things began to go wrong

engine started pinging and the gas tank blew up / radio quit during a Johnny Prine song

(chorus)
