MAYBELLINE (Berry / Freed / Fratto) Chuck Berry - 1955 Elvis Presley - 1955 Gerry & The Pacemakers - 1964 Johnny Rivers - 1964 The Syndicats - 1964 Chris Smither - 1984 Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do As I was motivatin' over the hill I saw Maybelline in a coup de ville A Cadillac a-rollin' on the open road Nothin' will outrun my V8 Ford The cadillac doin' 'bout ninety-five She's bumper to bumber rollin' side by side Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do Pink in the mirror on top of the hill It's just like swallowin' up a medicine pill First thing I saw that Cadillac grille Doin' a hundred and ten gallopin' over that hill Offhill curve, a downhill stretch Me and that Cadillac neck by neck Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more It then got cloudy and it started to rain I tooted my horn for a passin' lead The rain water blowin' all under my hood I knew that was doin' my motor good Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do The motor cooled down, the heat went down And that's when I heard that highway sound The Cadillac a-sittin' like a ton of lead A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still And I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do
