G#                          C#
There at the stoplight was a little sleeper car
G#             D#
With power that you can't see
G#                    C#
Painted drab, but then that's the way they are
                                         D#
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me
               C#                    D#
My friends with guts tell me that I'm nuts,
            Fm            C#
But I've seen all I need to see
    C#                                D#
That little sleeper car might fool the world
        C#                               G#
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me

      Fm 
Now my friends who've been right in the past
                 D#
Told me that that car can't go too fast
      Fm                                D#
And of course at first glance right they are
          C#                     D#
But that's because it's a sleeper car


            C#                D#                 Fm            C#
It's lookin' bad, it's lookin' sad, but I've seen all I need to see
    C#                                D#
That little sleeper car might fool the world
        C#                               G#

    C#                                D#
That little sleeper car might fool the world

             Fm
They just see rot, they just see rust
               G#
They just see a car that they just don't trust
               Fm                D#
But I'm here to tell the world at large
       C#                    D#
This is one high-class little car
             C#
And now she's pulling away from the light,
             Fm            C#
But I've seen all I need to see
    C#                                D#

Lyrics

At the stoplight was a little sleeper car
With power that you can't see
Painted drab, but then that's the way they are
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me
My friends with the guts tell me that I'm nuts,
But I've seen all I need to see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me

???
Them dual exhaust tones, they don't lie
I'll bet this car was once a chase car
Cia or maybe FBI

And if that car is ever put to the test
Then it's dust will be all you see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me

It's lookin' bad, it's lookin' sad, but I've seen all I need to see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me

No no no
No no no

They just see rot, they just see rust
They just see a car that they just don't trust
But I'm here to tell the world at large
This is one high-class little car
And now she's pulling away from the stop light,
But I've seen all I need to see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me

Lyrics

There at the stoplight was a little sleeper car
With power that you can't see
Painted drab, but then that's the way they are
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me
My friends with the guts told me that I was nuts,
But I've seen all I need to see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me

Them dual exhaust zones, they don't lie
That tough suspension, I can fly
I bet this car was once a chase car
Cia or maybe FBI

And if that car is ever put to the test
Then its dust will be all you see
Now that little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not fooling me

Yeah

It's running bad
It's looking sad
But I've seen all I need to see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not fooling me

No no no

Yeah

They just see rot, they just see rust
They, to them it's just see a car they just don't trust
But I'm here to tell the world at large
This is one high-class little car
And now she's pulling away from the light,
But I've seen all I need to see
That little sleeper car might fool the world
But that little sleeper car's not foolin' me
No,
No

Yeah
