November Rain

Why “November Rain” is actually a message telling you to change your tires: 

Ever wonder if songs have secret meanings?

Here at Budds’ Chev, we’ve discovered that the awesome Guns n’ Roses power ballad is actually trying to tell you when to change your tires. When the weather starts to change to November rain, remember what you have to do:



When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you
Don’t you know I feel the same
 When I look at the unique markings of your tread
I can see your love for summer driving
But tire, when I hold you
I know that you are too stiff for winter
Nothin’ lasts foreverAnd we both know hearts can change

And it’s hard to hold a candle

In the cold November rain

The longevity of most tires is only around 40-80 thousand kilometers

And we both know Hertz can change their prices a lot on rentals

And I would much rather have my tires changed for me at the shop

Than try to do it by candlelight in the rain

We’ve been through this such a long long time
Just tryin’ to kill the pain, oo yeah
But love is always coming and love is always going
And no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today
Walking away
 I’ve driven many kilometres with these tiresTrying to forget that winter is coming soon

My wife drives an extra 40 km to and from work every day

I don’t know when it will get so cold that my tires will lose grip & create a possible accident
And I may have to walk to work while my car is in the body shop

If we could take the time
To lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin’ that you were mine
All mine
 If I have some time I will go to the dealership
Because I know it’s time to buy some winter tires
I will feel better knowing that we are safe on the road
Because I have fabulous new winter tires
And they’re all mine
So if you want to love me
Then darlin’ don’t refrain
Or I’ll just end up walkin’
In the cold November rain
 If you care about me
Don’t forget to remind me to buy winter tires
Or I’ll just end up walking
In the cold November rain
