(G. Slick - J. Kaukonen)
He's just an american boy & he loves his machine. No back-talk from a
machine. When was the last time a television set--gave you s***t about who
you met last night? No back-talk machine. If your motor doesn't turn over
smooth for you, you don't feed it right.
Give it a little grease--give it a little gas, drive
straight on through the night. Man-made
mechanical mover--love your machine. You say
nothing's right but natural things--
Poison oak is a natural plant why don't you
put some in your food.
I don't care if there's chemicals in it
s long as my lettuce is crisp!
Preservatives might just be preserving you,
I think that's something you missed!
Ya you missed it.
Man-made mechanical mover, I love his machine.
He's just an american boy & I love his machine.
Smooth moving steel.
Keep your engine warm & wet
be friendly to your steel.
Feed it right, your mechanical pet
then get behind the wheel.
Put a little statch in the old corvette
then give it a feel.
Smooth moving steel--give it a feel
man-made mechanical mover--it'll move faster than
you can--vegetable lover.
