Young Man's Car

Cheap but fun -- Italian --
it was a young man's ride
and he could own the highway
with the right girl at his side.

You had to buy them quickly,
a berry fresh with dew;
The sun would quickly fade the paint,
you had to get them new.

And the wind would sing sad love songs
to him at the wheel
and for a while he'd ride in style
on youth's ephemeral steel.

Ground Cover

What I want is some sort of green, hardy, mowable ground-cover (grass would be nice) that is as shade tolerant as poison ivy.
