I'm in Love with My Car Lyrics
Such a clean machine
With the pistons a pumpin'
And the hub caps all gleam
When I'm holdin' your wheel
All I hear is your gear
When my hand's on your grease gun
Oh it's like a disease son
I'm in love with my car

Yes, Roger Taylor was deadly serious about this song, somewhat shocking Brian May. The lyrics are brilliant - perhaps the subject really inspired Roger:
"Told my girl I have to forget her
Rather buy me a new carburettor"
- a carb, for you non-techie youngsters, was the mechanical equivalent to fuel injectors today.
"When I'm cruisin' in overdrive
Don't have to listen to no run-of-the-mill talk jive"
But there is at least a hint that Roger has his tongue in his cheek - you can read the following as referring to a form of sexual addiction:
"With my hand on your grease gun
It's like a disease son"

A song about the obsession of man for car. At first, Brian thought it was a joke, but went along with it. Now a success (well, to me anyway, I love this song.)
Sung by Roger, for those who didn't know.
