The compartment in almost any vehicle that is on the passenger's side. Used to keep old-fashioned driving gloves in. Now used for ect. items.
guy 1:Could you get the gun out of the glove compartment ?
guy 2:It's locked. Why do you need it?
guy 3:My grandfather often snoops around in my car... he might take it and who knows what will happen.
The glove compartment isn't accurately named
And everybody knows it.
So i'm proposing a swift orderly change.
Cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
And all i find are souvenirs from better times
Before the gleam of your taillights fading east
To find yourself a better life.
