the art of stick dyslexia

I never learnt to drive stick properly    
considering I was drunk 99.9% of the times    
anyone bothered to get out it and guide me away        
from wherever it was I planned on going        
‘cause I never once reached my destination        
       
While I’ve always been manually dyslexic      
when it comes to riding on things other girls drool over        
ohh’ing and ahh’ing at the latest shiny toy        
hot out on the market ‘cause every girl wants      
a model with a body like that… right?       
       
It took a while to figure out I don’t really care      
about driving stick like other girls that pine        
for a shiny (or not so shiny) toy to call their own        
bragging to their friends about everything from        
maintenance to how far the fuel tank will take them        
       
And I’ve spent hours in tortured contemplation        
wondering why cars don’t get me off when it turns out        
I was never meant to be riding around on anything so masculine      
‘cause I’m more of a bikes kind of girl anyway
