    It was Della and the Dealer and a dog named Jake
    And a cat named Kalamazoo
    Left the city in a pick up truck
    Gonna make some dreams come true
    Yeah, they rolled out west where the wild sun sets

    See the rain comin' down and the roof won't hold 'er
    Lost my job and I feel a little older
    Car won't run and our love's grown colder
    But maybe things'll get a little better, in the mornin'
    Maybe things'll get a little better.
