As I was motivatin' over the hill
I saw Maybelline in a Coupe de Ville
Cadillac rollin' on an open road
But nothin' outrun my V8 Ford
Cadillac doin' about ninety-five
Bumper to bumper rollin' side to side

Maybelline why can't you be true
Maybelline why can't you be true
You've done started back doin' the things you used to do

Well the Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford
The Ford got hot, wouldn't do no more
It done got cloudy and started to rain
Tooted my horn for the passin' lane
The rain water poured up under my hood
Knew that were doin' my motor good

Maybelline why can't you be true
Maybelline why can't you be true
You've done started back doin' the things you used to do

The heat went down and the motor cooled down
That's when I heard that highway sound
Cadillac looked like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead
Cadillac looked like it's standin' still
And I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill

Maybelline why can't you be true
Maybelline why can't you be true
You've done started back doin' the things you used to do
