The Lyrics

Oh, I Was A Car Bender,
She was a fine lady
But she married me, anyway
Her name was Sadie

I craned in a salvage yard
A dead car jungle
Droppin' in old Pontiacs
Pullin' out small bundles

She hailed from Ireland
Sailed from Dublin City
Met and married her in Oregon
College teacher, pretty

No two were so far apart
On the social ladder
She would feast on caviar
I was more, bean chowder

I worked as that Car Bender
She stayed the fine lady
Went with her to the opera
Watched, with me, "Bunch, Brady"

Big love means big family
Four sons and three daughters
For our gold anniversary
Cruised the Irish Sea waters

Yes, I Was A Car Bender
Now we're close to eighty
Ask me what was my biggest crush
I'll say it was Sadie

Ask me what was my biggest crush
I'll say it's still Sadie..

touching valentines-dayish ending AFW. It's a pity Alice and Sam the Butcher from "Bunch Brady" didn't get to share a similar 80-year blissful union - 555

Great job and very funny, and I guess one could call me a car bender since I am widely known as a bad driver who is accident-prone while driving, and my current transportation has no straight body panels to speak of. 5s.
