MINI VAN
Lyrics by Rick Stepina

When I was just 18
I drove an old Chevelle
Spent my weekends drinking
And raising lots a Hell
But now I’m older
I’ve come to understand:
I used to be cool once;
Now I drive a mini-van

Me and all my buddies
We’d party thru the night
I’d go cruising on the circuit
Looking for a fight
But now I’m older
I hope you understand:
I used to be cool once;
Now I drive a mini-van

You’ll find me in the yard
In sneakers and tube socks
Riding on the mower, rockin’ my beer gut
And I say
C’mon people, I hope you understand:
I used to be cool once;
Now I drive a mini-van

hot girls would date me
Foot prints on the dash
A roach clip on the mirror
A hidden smokin’ stash
Now my van smells like French fries
I’m stepping on kid’s toys
Instead of cranking Zeppelin
Squeaky brakes make all the noise

Oh, now That I’m older
I’ve come to understand:
I used to be cool once,
Now I drive a mini-van

Well I used to be cool once:
Now I drive a mini-van
