Seeking lyrics to "Family Car" by Lou & Peter Berryman. Email gooshie@aol.com if you can help. Song chorus is:

When you are down and out As low as a man can get Remember the family car America's safety net If there's no place for you No matter who you are No one denies your right To live in your car.

Thanks, Matt Leger

THE FAMILY CAR
^^ (Lou and Peter Berryman)
copyright 1988

Seems like nothing paid off
Unexpectedly laid off
We'd just been evicted
Our hearts were so heavy

And yet we were thankful
We had half a tankful
And we were all able
To squeeze in the Chevy

CHORUS:
When you are down and out
As low as a man can get
Remember the family car
America's safety net

If there's no place for you
No matter who you are
No one denies your right
To live in your car.

2. My mother said, crying,
Are you really trying
YOu live in a Chevy
Now son, I've been thinking

If you'd only bother
To work hard like your father
By the time he was your age
He lived in a Lincoln

Chorus

3. Now the yuppies have feelings
Against three foot five ceilings
And prefere the proportions
Of a three story condo

But I bet you that someday
They'll be out in the driveway
Trying to jam their jacuzzi
in their Alfa Romeo

Chorus

4. With a couch on the roof rack
And a dog in the wayback
Three wishes I wish for
To make my life sweeter

Some steam from your thermos
On my cold epidermis
Some change for the better
Some change for the meter.
