The Lyrics

For the artistry comp, my first (and hopefully last) rap parody.
OHH! Volvo! Here we go!
C'mon, c'mon! You ready? (heh)
Let's do it man (uh uh uh uh-uhh)
Customize this van

{Ford, without Focus, is annoyed}

[Me]
My tailpipes make a bang man {pimp my ride}
And there’s some rustin’ on the body umm {pimp my ride}
I say it’s true that the oil’s turned to goo {pimp my ride}
You know 'm talking ‘bout the seat cushion’s split like the red sea {pimp my ride}
There isn’t anywhere there’s not a dent {pimp my ride}
Okay, so being that’s the case {pimp my ride}
Let me take it around {pimp my ride}
Your place, yeah, let you pimp my ride {pimp my ride}

[Customizer]
So here you’ve showed up, sho’ nuff, cry on my shoulder
And I coulda told ya the muffler’s come unbolted
And you got mold on top o’ the console and cup holder
Wantin’ a Rover, you can’t afford a Desoto
Drivin’ that Volvo, twenty years old and getting older
It’s goin’ the wrong direction gonna rust and then it’s over
Never say nono, so I’ll work it with all o’ my mojo
Chopper or auto, I’m the customization commando
Like a composer, vehicle Verdi, no poser
Startin’ here on the body, movin’ on to the interior
And the engine and drivetrain it’s a total van makeover
Realizin’ this job will take years if I do it solo
Need my composure, give you costs for a full disclosure
Finishing this job could give me worldwide exposure
Primetime, Dateline put me on a poster
I’m the man on the news and everybody knows me
Yeahhhh, YEA!

Pimp my ride
To all the ugly autos on the road it’s: pimp my ride
I’m takin’ cars that have been towed it’s: pimp my ride
I’m makin’ cars that will be showed it’s: pimp my ride
To all the ugly autos on the road it’s: pimp my ride
I’m takin’ cars that have been towed it’s: pimp my ride
I’m makin’ cars that will be showed it’s: pimp my ride
Ye-yeah ye-yeah ye-yeahhhh; pimp my ride (ooh)

[Me]
So oh-boy, this is best, they’ll be impressed when it’s done
It costs a ton but worth it when I’m ridin’ and havin’ fun (fun)
I’ll be stylin’ like young Groucho Harpo Chico
They’ll glimpse my tailpipe and I’ll be gone (gone)
Drivin’ crazy halfway dumb
Don't stop even when the law come, I leave ‘em behind, eat my dust
I’m cruisin’ and lappin’ the pack you should be clappin’ yeah
Pass all the the pack when I hit the gas and it go vrooma-vroom-vroom
Yeah my ride gonna fly say goodbye I’m no longer just a guy
Wait, man this price is high, what’d I sign, I’m gonna cry
All the money I owe see it makes me start to wonder why
I didn’t just go and buy a couple of MX5s
Giving all my cash like a sucker, I sigh
Waah waah wa-waah wa-waaaaaah, WAAH!

[Customizer]
To all the ugly autos on the road it’s: pimp my ride
I’m takin’ cars that have been towed it’s: pimp my ride
I’m makin’ cars that will be showed it’s: pimp my ride
To all the ugly autos on the road it’s: pimp my ride
I’m takin’ cars that have been towed it’s: pimp my ride
I’m makin’ cars that will be showed it’s: pimp my ride
Ye-yeah ye-yeah ye-yeahhhh; pimp my ride (ooh)

Don’t worry about the money, stop your shiver
Just wait’ll you see what my workers’ll deliver
It’s hot, just look, blue book, you’ll be a thanksgiver
Seat leather so tough but really it’s softer than pillows
Like chinchilla or Twinkie filler, a lady killer
I turn old automobile junkers into thrillers
And we agree ain’t free to fix this junk heap
My crew knows what to do so you needn’t quiver
And besides, you signed you already pulled the trigger
We’re already on the body, sandin’ with some Brillo
Ain’t no work stagnation, see that he’s cleaning the injectors
You’re gonna blow the mind of those state inspectors
Oh, oh, oh, oh yeahhhh, YEA!

To all the ugly autos on the road it’s: pimp my ride
I’m takin’ cars that have been towed it’s: pimp my ride
I’m makin’ cars that will be showed it’s: pimp my ride
To all the ugly autos on the road it’s: pimp my ride
I’m takin’ cars that have been towed it’s: pimp my ride
I’m makin’ cars that will be showed it’s: pimp my ride
Ye-yeah ye-yeah ye-yeahhhh; pimp my ride (ooh)

Pimp my ride, pimp my ride {*slam* (sound of a hood being slammed shut)}

[Me]
No more retreads {*echoes*}

(Artistry) Wannabemustangjockey should see this one. This had to be very, very, difficult subbing those rhymes, especially in verse 1. I'm not overly familiar with cars in general, so this didn't appeal to me on the funniness level as many of the other entrants do, but I do appreciate the work that went into this. Could there have been a better sub for "drivin' crazy halfway dumb" ?

Not really Eminem, but more completely Stat Quo, because all Eminem says during this song is "By My Side" but that's fine, because according to the rules Dave set on the Artistry your allowed to do that, but I gotta tell you... I was not a fan of this OS, not at all.... So I'm kinda glad you did a parody of it so I can think of your lyrics instead of Stat Quo's. I just hope Dave doesn't make a recording of this one for you, because the OS was annoying, and very typical rap music. I loved the idea of combining popular "hood" music with a popular "hood" television show though, that tickled me (But what I really want to know is how to contact these guys, because my car needs a dramatic tune up).

Well done, Rex. Excellent job on the rhymes. I liked the line "Like chinchilla or Twinkie filler, a lady killer" the best.

(Artistry) While the concept was brilliant, I'm not familiar with the OS, and it could've used a bit more of the funny. Good job anyway, that looked like a bastard to write, looking at how chunky the verses are.

(Artistry) What a tough OS to do--and a deserving target at that (that one was the most rap of the rap songs in this round). Matty: You can pretty much guarantee that won't happen. The idea was well executed and some of your rhyming was amazing.

It was a good idea and there were some good lines, but my problems with this were that as far as I know it's not a well-known song at all and I felt like too many of the original lyrics didn't change.

It was a tough OS and I can how much you (and really everyone in this round) did.I enjoyed the read and you deserve high Marx.
