lyrics

I had a girl who used to treat me nice
But she threw it all away on a big ol’ patch of black ice
A dirty mouth, but her moves were clean
And her sheen’s gone now face down in the gasoline
I had a girl who used to treat me nice
But she threw it all away on a big ol’ patch of black ice
It didn’t help when she pumped the brakes
And she knows a rough ride but that’s more than even she could take

Black ice, black ice
It’s rare to live but it’s not rare to die
Black ice, don’t think twice
Take me away yeah wooooah
You slip, you swerve
It’s rattlin’ all in your nerves

She could touch and lick and she could feel
But now she sits still hands stuck on the steering wheel
Evil’s ugly, baby that is true
But watch out 'cause the dashboard monster is comin’ for you
He’s gonna get you too yeah

Black ice, black ice
It’s rare to live but it’s not rare to die
Black ice, don’t think twice
Take me away yeah wooooah
You slip, you swerve
It’s rattlin’ all in your nerves
