Verse 2 :

She took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
the fairground's lit
A drunk man fits
by the gate she's driving through
Got his hat tipped bottle back in between his teeth

Looks like he's buried in the sand at the beach
I can't think about you
driving off to leave barely awake
To take a little nap while the road is straight

Chorus :

I wish that car had never been discovered
They took away the bottle and the hat he was under
That's the one thing that he could never do
And it'll make a whisper out of you

Verse 3 :

She took the oldsmobile out past condor ave
Cops were running around the scene
Looking for some kind of clue
They ever get uptight when a moth gets crushed

Unless a light bulb really loved him very much
I'm lying down
Blowing smoke from my cigarette
Little whisper smoke signs you'll never get

Chorus :

You're in your oldsmobile driving past the moon
Headlights burning bright ahead of you
And someone's burning out on condor ave
Trying to make a whisper out of you

What a shitty thing to say
Did you really mean it?
You never said a word to me about what passed between us
So now I'm leaving you alone
You can do whatever the hell you want to
