lyrics

I spent the night on the side of the road,
treated to an orange light show,
my clutch dropped out and my foot hit the floor,
I couldn't coast more than a stones throw.

It's a one night stand steering wheel in hand.
Fiesta Siesta no more.

Mechanic called said he had some news,
wasn't what I wanted to hear, and he said;
"I'm sorry girl but your baby's gone"
Made me cry vehicular tears.

It's a one night stand, steering wheel in hand.
Fiesta Siesta no more.

Tucked her away on the side of the road,
and waited there to watch her drift off.
