Lyrics

I watch the cars go back and forth
I watch the cars go back and forth
I watch the cars go back and forth
Sometimes south and sometimes north
I watch the cars

I hear them stopping down the street
I hear them stopping down the street
I hear the sound of stalking feet
I wonder who they're gonna meet
I'm getting drunk inside my house

I see the men inside their shells
I see the men inside their shells
They go to prostitutes as well
Who never mind the way they smell
The prostitutes are paid for it

Alright!

I hear you're gonna try that too
I hear you're gonna try that too
I hear you're gonna try that too
I wouldn't pay to go to you
I'm getting drunk inside my house again

I watch the cars go back and forth
I watch the cars go back and forth
I watch the cars go back and forth
Sometimes south and sometimes north 
I watch the cars
