Cars And Girls

Brucie dreams life’s a highway too many roads bypass my wayOr they never begin. Innocence coming to griefAt the hands of life – Stinkin’ car thief, that’s my concept of sinDoes heaven wait all heavenly over the next horizon?But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young ?Just look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.Life’s a drive through a dust bowl, what’s it do, do to a young soulWe are deeply concerned Someone stops for directions,Something responds deep in our engines, we have all been burned.Will heaven wait, all heavenly over the next horizon?But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young ?Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.Little boy got a hot rod, thinks it makes him some kind of new God.Well this is one race he won’t win,’Cos life’s no cruise with a cool chickToo many folks feelin’ car sick, but it never pulls in.Brucie’s thoughts – Pretty streamers- Guess this world needs its dreamers, may they never wake up.But look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.Just look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young?Just look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.Just look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt more much more than cars and girls.Look at us now, start counting, what adds up the way it did when we were young?Look at us now, quit driving, some things hurt much more than cars and girls.

The song is a critique of Bruce Springsteen’s perceived limited subject matter in his songs. McAloon suggests that Springsteen’s worldview is too restricted and that “some things hurt more, much more, than cars and girls”. Ironically, the song’s popularity is partly due to it being misinterpreted as a “driving song”, leading it to appear on compilation albums such as Summer Cruisin’ and Top Gear (a spin-off from the BBC Television motoring show of the same name).

“'Cars and Girls' isn't an anti-rock song. It's simply saying to Bruce Springsteen that his metaphor for everything ('life's a highway') just isn't big enough to include all the complexity and sadness in the world.” – NME, March 25, 1989
