about

Suzie, cette machine mythique à la soif insatiable pour la neige et le gaz. Indomptable, difficilement impressionnable, Suzie règne sur son vaste domaine constamment enseveli par les coups hostiles de l'hiver québécois. Ce dévouement lui a valu un sincère hommage chanté par les humainEs vénérant ses loyaux services. Cependant il ne faut pas s'y méprendre, Suzie est un objet et considère que les genres sont des problèmes d'humainEs et n'a d'opinions que sur la hauteur des bancs de neige et le taux de plomb dans l'essence. Quoiqu'on l'en dise ou en pense, Suzie continuera de hurler et cracher sa fureur, brisant le silence glacial des nuits st-anacloises au rythme valsant des backfires. Gloire à toi Suzie.

lyrics

It smells, it smells like gasoline and beer
But it yells, it yells thru the night
And it smells, it smells like trouble and money
And it yells "til it runs dry

And it goes, it goes feet by feet
And it blows, it blows everything up its nose
And it goes, it goes even if it can't see
But it blows 'til it runs dry

Chorus :

It's my Suzie my little baby
But my little baby doesn't care about me
I do love it, but it still hates me
But Suzie doesn't know it's a mind blower
It's my Suzie (back), my very own Suzie

And it growls, it growls if you make it mad
But it crawls, it crawls when there's no grip
And it growls, it growls when it takes a bad sip
And it crawls like a mad cat

And I pull, I pull on that ol' crank
And I choke, I choke it when it's too cold
And I pull, I pull it outta the snow
And I choke when it spits against the wind

Outro :

Oh Suzie don't let me down, won't you stay 'til winter's gone
Oh Suzie, don't let me.down, I need you thru the storms
Oh Suzie won't you stay me we'll hang by the snow bank
Oh Suzie don't let me down won't you stay 'til winter's gone
Oh Suzie don't let me down I need you thru the storms
Oh Suzie won't you stay with me we'll hang by the snowbank
