Three Kids in a Car       Words & Music Neil Brewer 2006   

Three kids in a car on a Monday morn,

each one wishin’ that the others weren’t born,

and they can’t say nothin’ ‘cause they’ve all been scorned –

‘cause their mother’s done had enough.

 

And the sister sittin’ in the front seat -

(who at this point of the song, you need to know is about 3 months away from gettin’ her 

driver’s license)  she’s thinkin’ to herself:

I can’t believe that I’m still ridin’ with them –

I hope that we're not seen by some of my friends –

and if by chance, I fail the driver's exam -  then, I am running away.

 

Three kids in a car on a Monday morn,

and they can’t say nothin’ ‘cause they’ve all been scorned –

'cause their mother’s done had enough.

 

And the brother sitting behind her, 

(who at this point of the song, you should know is about 5 years younger than she is, 

but he’s still two years older than his little brother sittin’ next to him - 

he glares down at his little brother and he’s thinkin’ to himself:

I can’t wait 'till our sister's finally gone – 

then I’ll sit up front ‘cause that’s where I belong –

and I’ll be rid of you, you miserable worm. 

Why don’t you just run away?!

and they can’t say nothin’ ‘cause they’ve all been scorned – 

‘cause their mother’s done had enough.


And the little brother -  (who, at this point of the song you should know is a whole lot smarter than the other two think he is)  

he glares back up at his older brother and he’s thinkin’ to himself:

I know that there’s no body back in the trunk –

You only try to scare me with all that junk –

I hope you read my mind – I think you’re a skunk –

and guess what? I’m not runnin’ away …


And the mother, who’s been drivin’ all this time -  she’s thinkin’ to herself ... 

things that I'd better not say ... so, we’ll just pretend that she’s thinkin' ...

Oh, what a beautiful day!
