I never realized how funny the lyrics of Motorway are until I read through them this morning. Missed the "loo" business, and I never noticed the irony in "Ain't it a thrill to be so free" either. However, one thing I have always noticed and appreciated is the subtle touch of despair in the lines "So tired, tired of livin' / tired of livin' this motorway livin "; something about the repetition of the phrase "tired of livin'" - the way it pauses, and then folds over the end of the verse, somehow it calls out a contrast with the good humor in the rest of the song. I also love the use of "cats eyes", for me it is wonderfully evocative of being on the road, it generates rich imagery in my mind of speeding down the road late at night, focused but weary, with a constant stream of cats eyes on posts or embedded in the pavement guiding you into the darkness; they emerge as small points of light, one after another, gradually brightening, coming into focus clear, sharp, dramatically bright and then BAM in an instant they have disappeared into the past. "Cats eyes" also evokes that eerie feeling you get when your headlights reveal an actual cat or wild animal on the move in the night, or if you hear something in the woods, shine your flashlight into the blackness and a pair of eyes flash back at you within a mysterious, dark animal shadow. For only two words, that's poetic efficiency!
