   To town I went one sunny day,
A little shopping I wanted to do.
I rolled the windows down in my car
And let the wind blow right on through.

   My destination wasn't far away.
I really enjoyed the ride.
But as I walked by a tinted glass
I saw that my hair had not survived.

   So, I used thay car window as a mirror,
And attempted to fix my hair.
Buy, little did I know I had an audience.
That car had people in there.

   You can imagine  how I must have felt
When my face I could no longer see.
But instead the window lowered
And three strangers were now looking at me.

   I was shocked beyond measure
Not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
But they laughed and said I made their day
So I smiled as they waved goodbye.
