Thomas, B.J. - Two Car Garage Lyrics




I used to be Mr. Free, Tall, Dark and Cool
I did a solo act
Made up my own rules
Then you came along
And Changed my point of view
Oh baby what am I going to do?
Just look at me
Looking at you
I can't believe the things
I'm looking forward to
Would you believe I'm thinking about

A two car garage
And a two story house
And a couple of kids
We can brag about
Give me a two-toned Chevrolet
And too many bills to pay
And your two arms
Too make me happy living that way

I used to play such a game
Of hide and seek
I'd go looking for love
And hide if it saw me
You could find with my friends
Hanging out on the street
Now they're wondering where i could be
Well it's Saturday night
And it's just you and me
Snuggled up on the couch
Just watching TV
Would you believe I'm thinking about

A two car garage
And a two story house
And a couple of kids
We can brag about
Give me a two-toned Chevrolet
And too many bills to pay
And your two arms
Too make me happy living that way

If we don't get to Paris
It won't break our hearts
We'll just pack up the kids
And go to Yellowstone Park

I want a two car garage
And a two story house
And a couple of kids
We can brag about
Give me a two-toned Chevrolet
And too many bills to pay
And your two arms
Too make me happy living that way

All I want is you baby
And your sweet love

All I want is you baby
And a two car garage

All I want is you baby
And a two story house [fade out]

  1. Diane Gast Pfannenstiel

    This is my husband and mine song. He said this song is what made him want to get married to me In 1984. It is my ring tone for my husband calls n texts... Thank you so much for posting it

  2. retluoc

    Yes, this is a song that came from an era where people cared more about essence than money. Today all songs are written by algorithms and sung by people who can just "carry a tune", but have no talent.

  3. Rebecca Jewell

    God Bless BJ and your wonderful family....
    Thank you Guy. Great God Bless !!!

  4. The awesomeness boys channel

    I heard this on the radio

  9. Justin Lehr

    Revisiting my Dad's LP's and ran across this tune on "Hot Country Hits Vol 19" Almost forgot about some of these songs from my childhood.

  10. Kellie Shoun

    Looked for this song for a while.. thank you..

  11. Scott Manor

    Thanks for the tip Irwin.

  12. coorslightcowboy

    @ steven39211: The only place that can order cd's and vintage music like this is Earnest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, TN. I got family in Antioch, so I am in there every Christmas and find some amazing music. (I would check the one on Broadway first.) The other one is by Dollywood @ the mall.

  13. coorslightcowboy

    This is what REAL Country music is all about!! Thank you for another great song from a real country legend.

  14. herefordbull97

  20. truecountrymusicfan

    awesome song

  21. Joe Giambra

    To paraphrase BJ, what ever happened to old fashioned country?

  22. unclefestus

    wow.... how long since I heard this one? It's been over 20 years now. Though at the time I was just a kid and had no idea what he was singing about.

  23. Alan Elam

    Awesome! I have a VERY special request for another of BJ's early 80's country hits, from the same year in fact that he also hit with this song and "Whatever Happened to old-Fashioned Love?"-1983. It's called "The Girl Most Likely To". If you have that and could post it, that would surely be a YouTube first, as it is does not appear anywhere else on here. That would be awesome! Thanks!

  24. Diane Crownover

    It is great hearing this song after all these years, I have always loved this song. Awesone

  25. Alexandre Dias

    I loved it. BJThomas is the best.

  26. Dave Wollenberg

    Hit #3 in Billboard, 2-18-84. God bless you, brother B.J.!

  27. maryann rieckers

    this is the song my dad love play

  28. Alan Elam

    @omg747 I, too, remember the video for this one, VERY well. In fact, not only was it one of the first country videos to be given an MTV-Friendly look and budget, but also recieved VERY HEAVY rotation on CMT early in their existence(Hands up, who remembers when CMT signed on late '83/early '84!)

  29. Jesse Foreman

    omg747... i remember the video, in fact, I still have the entire video from Great American Country channel on videotape. It was one of my cherished music video cassettes, I always kept this tape positioned to this song so I could drop it in the VHS recorder and play right away.

  30. omg747

    Thank You this is his best. There was a video to this song but I have not seen it in over 20 years.

  31. JustAnnie51
