The Lyrics

After five and a half years of faithful service, I am junking my 1992 Toyota Tercel due to severe mechanical problems. When people ask why I got rid of it, I use this song to explain the situation to them.
I'm junkin' my car
'Cause my engine nearly died!
I'm junkin' my car;
Gotta find a better ride!
I'm junkin' my car
'Cause my engine nearly died!
I'm junkin' my car;
Gotta find a better ride!

Sometimes I go out for a drive
And the engine stalls out on me.
Restarting that car is no fun!
There's doubts that it will run.
But now I truly know the way;
This clunker has sure seen better days.
A 4-cylinder engine that's running on two!
And, well, I don't wanna spend no moreó
It's rotten to the core!
Not mentioning the traffic I have held up before!


Well, I'm so tired of it!
On my way,
Just driving it away.
Stopped at a red light, vibrating;
The engine stops while I'm waiting,
Then I hear those honking horns,
Motorists filled with scorn
'Cause they can't wait one second more!
Road rage is causing war!
And it stalls and it shakes day and night,
And people flash their lights.
I just can't take this no more!
