Oh The machine of a dream, such a clean machine With the pistons a pumpin', and the hubcaps all gleam When I'm holding your wheel All I hear is your gear With my hand on your grease gun Mmm, it's like a disease, son I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile Get a grip on my boy racer roll bar Such a thrill when your radials squeal
Told my girl I'll have to forget her Rather buy me a new carburetor So she made tracks saying this is the end, now Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now
When I'm holding your wheel All I hear is your gear When I'm cruisin' in overdrive Don't have to listen to no run of the mill talk jive
I'm in love with my car (love with my car), gotta feel for my automobile I'm in love with my car (love with my car), string back gloves in my automolove

Steve from Deale, Md 20751, UsaWay back when, when I had Corvette this way my favorite song
Nikole from Howard County, MarylandRoger Taylor is my love of my lifeeeeeeeee
A Random Guy from EarthFred: I'm in love with my cats Brian: I'm in love with my wife John: I'm in love with my bass Roger I'M IN LOVE WITH MY CAR
Robert from Houston, TxI heard that too, Lindsey, and it makes sense when you consider that "Bohemian Rhapsody" was the A-side and that Queen's record deal paid royalties as equal halves to the writers of the A and B sides. As "Bo Rhap" became the UK's third best selling single of all time, Roger became a very wealthy man from these royalties. Not bad for a song Brian May thought was a joke when it was demo'd by Roger.
Thomas from Somerville, AlThis song rocks! It is yet another showcase of the great musical talent of the band and of Mercurys vocal. Come to think of it, I don't recall hearing a song by Queen that I didn't like
Lindsay from Coweta, OkApparently, and this may or may not be true, but Roger Taylor begged for this to be put on the B-side of the album. When Freddie said no, he locked himslef in a cupboard until he agreed to it!
Charles from Glenside, PaOr perhaps 'automolove' is just a cute way of referring to auto-eroticism.But I'll refrain from reading any illicit meaning into any Queen song.
Pablo from Santiago, ChileI've heard two different truth versions of this song. The first one tells that the song is really a sarcastic view of a crappy van that the band used in one of their very first tours through England. The other one is that Roger, being a car fan, wrote the song about one of his favourites: an Alfa Romeo.
Paul from Rothesay, New Brunswick , CanadaI watched an interview with Roger, where he sits down with an acoustic guitar and plays the song for a bit, the same way he did many years before when he auditioned the song for Brian May. Roger goes on to say that Brian's reaction was "You're kidding, right?" A Queen classic!
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
