​My Mother the Car

This song is by Sammy Davis Jr. and appears on the live album That's All! (1966).

Everybody knows in a second life
We all come back sooner or later
As anything from a pussycat to a man-eating alligator
Well, you may think my story
Is more fiction than it's fact
But believe it or not, my Mother dear
Decided she'd come back ... as a car!
She's my very own guiding star
A 1928 Porter, that's my Mother dear
She helps me through everything I do
And I'm so glad she's here

Everything my Daddy never was
Well, now she wants me to be
She's taken her place as the fifth member
Of my small family
And she'll blow her radiator
When things ain't going right
And whenever she gets too lonely
We just all got to spend the night ... with my car
She's my very own guiding star
I mean a 1928 Porter ...
That's my Mother dear
She helps me through everything I do
And I'm so glad she's here
My Mother the car!
My Mother the car!
