15-1 is the 14th song on The Mountain Goats' fourth cassette, Hot Garden Stomp.


If I had a car and you were riding in it
I'd show you what my car could do
I'd head east out highway fifteen and see the
Starlight shower over you
Gas fumes rising from the blacktop
Cheap motels with flashing signs
Just an old sweet song made new
And oozing through the pines

If I had thirty dollars and I could make time stop
And the moon was high up above
And moonbeams fell like sweet cream
Then the night air would carry our dark dreams
Gas fumes rising on the highway  
Neon flashing everywhere 
Just an old sweet song made new by your body 
And desert flowers blooming in the thick night air
