Eddie Rabbit Gets Me

If you’re a mom. And it’s summer. And your kids are in a million different sports and camps. And you’re constantly running out of food. And you need to get doctors forms before the new school year. And you bought the wrong size water shoes for your son so you have to get to the post office AGAIN to return them. And you promised your friends you’d meet them for happy hour even though it’s cutting into your precious reality TV show time. And it’s time for an oil change. And you’re looking for a Starbucks drive thru. And you have to make it to the pharmacy before it closes…

If this sounds like you, then you need to download “Driving My Life Away.” It’s an oldie but a goodie by Eddie Rabbit. Who’da thought a boy from Brooklyn would speak our language. Check out these lyrics and tell me it’s not SO YOU.

Driving My Life Away
Well the midnight headlights blind you on a rainy night
Steep grade up ahead, slow me down, makin’ no time,
But I got to keep rollin’
Those windshield wipers slappin’ out a tempo,
Keepin’ perfect rhythm with the song on the radio,
But I got to keep rollin’
Ooh, I’m drivin’ my life away, lookin’ for a better way for me
Ooh, I’m drivin’ my life away, lookin’ for a sunny day
Well the truck stop cutie comin’ on to me,
Tried to talk me into a ride
Said I wouldn’t be sorry
But she was just a baby
Hey, waitress, pour me another cup of coffee,
Pop it down, jack me up, shoot me out, flyin’ down the highway,
Lookin’ for the mornin’
Ooh, I’m drivin’ my life away, lookin’ for a better way for me
Ooh, I’m drivin’ my life away, lookin’ for a sunny day
