Little Blue Subaru

by Duncan Jones

While driving on a sunny day
Toward the towering mountain range
The road climbed ever higher
And the weather began to change

But I kept my pace, and I held my place
On the highway moving fast
My four by four was strolling
And man I flew right past

Right past, right past
And man I flew right past!

Then the clouds rolled in and darkened
And the mountain shadows grew
And at that time appeared right behind me
A little blue Subaru

I thought, "Good luck, buddy I've got a truck
And you'll not keep up with me"
But the little blue Subaru flashed his lights
As if to say, "We'll see ..."

We'll see, we'll see
As if to say, "We'll see ..."

Soon the turns began to tighten
And the rain began to fall
And the traffic began lighten
And the big rigs started to stall

So the wipers slashed, and my giant tires splashed
And the lanes became hard to find
But the little blue Subaru didn't miss a beat
The whole time right behind

Behind, behind
The whole time right behind

Then it began to sleet and ice
I let my V8 roar
Determined that I'd not play nice
My pedal hit the floor

And I knew shouldn't care, but I thought it wasn't fair
Just a part of me had to win
But the little blue Subaru stayed on my tail
No, I coudn't get rid of him

Of him, of him
I couldn't get rid of him

Then the road turned white, it was snowing more
And I had to let up a bit
For a wagon to pass my four by four
Would make me throw a fit

He paid under thirty grand, and I didn't understand
How this guy was still hanging on
Just a little blue Subaru, not a Range Rover
Tacoma, or Rubicon

Just a little blue Subaru, not a Range Rover
Tacoma, or Rubicon

Finally we were passing no one else
Were the only lights in sight
Hesitating now, I tamed myself
In the cold, dark, winter night

So I signaled, slowed, on the iced mountain road
Grew up, and swallowed my pride
And the little blue Subaru, calm as ever
Passed right along my side

My side, my side
Passed right along my side

For a moment we were even
Then the Subaru took the lead
And as if to simply rub it in
She was quite polite, indeed

Passing by without a beep, because her family was asleep
But she waved with words, "Thank you!"
Now I'm a great V8 with a cool tailgate behind
A little blue Subaru

I'm a great V8 with a cool tailgate behind
A little blue Subaru
