What Are You Driving? Lyrics

What are you driving on Monday? X3
So early in the morning?
(say it) “What are you driving?”
A racy red sports car x3
so early in the morning

What are you driving on Tuesday? X3
So early in the morning?
(say it) “What are You Driving?”
A strurdy, burly tow truck x3
so early in the morning

What are you driving on Wednesday? X3
So early in the morning?
(say it) “What are you driving?”
A three wheeled little Robin x3
so early in the morning

What are you driving on Thursday? X3
So early in the morning?
(say it) “What are you driving?”
A thrifty, nifty taxi x3
so early in the morning

What are you driving on Friday? X3
So early in the morning?
(say it) “What are you driving?”
A trot-a-long horse and cart x3
so early in the morning

What are you driving on Saturday? X3
So early in the morning?
(say it) “What are you driving?”
A clickety, clackety tram x3
so early in the morning

What are you driving on Sunday? X3
so early in the morning?
(say it) “What are you driving?”
A roly, poly roller x3
so early in the morning
