Instead Of A Clank It's A Clunk



Instead of a clank it's a clunk A dreamlike sound to my ears That irreplaceable new car smell Not known for many years Instead of a clank it's a clunk I'm driving a brand new jalopy With all the bells and whistles My mood is turning soppy Instead of a clank it's a clunk Musta died and gone upstairs Slapped myself, yup I'm awake Sitting in my underwear Instead of a clank it's a clunk Jumped up at the stroke of six Forgot my knickers so here I sit I'm now in a terrible fix Instead of a clank it's a clunk People start to gather around To know if I like my new jalopy Hope they don't look down Instead of a clank it's a clunk Drove off with a confident air Enjoying my moment of ecstasy Wind messing up my hair Instead of a clank it's a clunk Moments like these are rare So very few times in a lifetime Noticing all the stares Instead of a clank it's a clunk A dreamlike sound to my ears That oh so yummy new car smell Missed it for too many years © Jack Ellison 2013

    A clunk in a new car?... Hope you're on your way to the dealer who sold it to you! By the way... send me some of that smell in an envelope... If anyone notices your undies... Just tell them that fabreeze smell is intoxicating to us old farts... It's their fault... LOL... Hope you remembered your house keys so you can get back in the house... LOL

    The clank refers to the tinny sound of the door closing on my old car. The clunk is the welcome sound of my new car... all new and solid with no clanking. Did I explain that well? LOL As for that new car smell, you actual can buy that as a car freshener (I think)! Hugs, xox
