One morning when my car broke down
Stuck by the road
And the sun it shone like gold and ochre

I had nothing to do for three sweet hours
Apart from listen to the sound
Of the sheep and of the cows

And I wish that I had forgotten
I wish that I had missed
To pay for the roadside assist

And the moon was bold and shined like precious shiny silver
And I unrolled my bed
And I lay down my weary head
And the wind was cold the fire burned like precious gold
In the gathering storm
It's keeping me warm

I waited there til they rescued me
I tried my best
To maintain my cool and my composure

And I called in for the Merton tow truck
Coz the ignition lines were torn
And the headlights and the parking lights were gone

And everything was leaking coolant
And the engine valves were blocked
And the steering wheel was locked


The mechanic he smiled and he clicked his tongue
He said that I might be here for some time
He knew the game as soon as he pulled over

And the valley shone in the light of the morning
As I sat in my car
Talking to the crow and the galah

And I called in for a mental health day
Guess I won't get to see them
Well carpe the fucking diem
