  • I've been driving around town
    With my head spinning around
    Everywhere I look, I see
    Your '96 Jeep Cherokee

    You're a bully and a clown
    You made me cry and put me down
    After all that I've been through
    You think I'd hate the sight of you

    But with every jeep I see
    My broken heart still skips a beat
    I guess it's just my stupid luck
    That all of Boston drives the same black, ****ing truck

    It could be him or am I tripping
    And I'm crashing into everything
    And thinking about skipping town a while
    Until these cars go out of style

    I try to see it in reverse
    It makes the situation hundreds of times worse
    When I wonder if it makes you want to cry
    Every time you see a light blue Volvo driving by

    So don't tell me if you're off to see the world
    I know you won't get very far
    Don't tell me if you get another girl
    Baby, just tell me if you get another car

    It could be him or am I tripping
    It could be him

    The number of them is insane
    Every exit's an ex-boyfriend memory lane
    Every major street's a minor heart attack
    I see a red jeep and I want to paint it black

    It could be him or am I tripping
    And I'm crashing into everything
    I can't wait till you trade the damn thing in
    By then they will have put me in the looney bin

    It could be him my heart is pounding
    It's just no use, I'm surrounded
    But one day I'll steal your car and switch the gears
    And drive that Cherokee straight off this trail of tears
