The Lyrics

This is one of those songs that just comes to my mind on a whim. Seeing that this is a song about a recall, no, I'm not talking about any of the recalls that have happened in recent years. I just figured that cars were the funniest possible subject for a long, convoluted recall in the same way Weird Al Yankovic's computer virus gets funnier with each line adding to what it does.
Hey, everyone, listen up, put your eyes and ears on me
Really want to give you a warning
'Cause I got mailed this morning
'Bout a sudden and incredibly important recall
If you should own a beige coupe from France built back in '03
Better not go driving your auto
If you're inside it now, no
Don't you turn the key or else it will
Switch up the first and reverse gears for giggles
Switch all your tunes to The Wiggles
Set off speed cameras and make your wipers streak

(Look out!) It's gonna make your gas mileage a joke
(Look out!) Blow up your tires and make your exhaust smoke
(Look out!) Make all the shocks break on bumps and potholes too
If it hasn't already done some of this to you

It's a recall!
Leave your car alone before you're the next to fall
Call or email, just alert everybody

When on the road, you might notice the paint will start to peel
And disable your power steering
Make you lose all your hearing
And make sure your mom mismatches all her earrings
Then it will make a donut out of your full-sized spare wheel
You will lose your wallet inside it
The alarm will run riot
So just take the bus, or else it will
Make sure you cheat on your diet 'til you're heavy
Really turn out to be a Chevy
Even switch on the blinkers without your consent

(Look out!) It's gonna tamper with all of your brake lines
(Look out!) Adjust your seat so you fix it all the time
(Look out!) And make deer jump right into your driving path
(Look out!) And give you lots of rashes on your left calf
(Look out!) Jumble your licence plate and scratch up the shine
(Look out!) Steal all your money and then drink all your wine
(Look out!) Then hit the Prez's car and cause World War III
And then make lots of pigeons poop on it incessantly
Why, you ask? Well...

It's a recall!
Leave your car alone before you're the next to fall
Call or email, just alert everybody
It's a recall!
Leave your car alone before you're the next to fall
Call or email, just alert everybody
Warn all your friends, just contact everybody
Tell everyone you know, tell everybody now

If you try to drive it, you won't know just what you should feel
So instead of letting it suddenly throw off a wheel...

Get out of your car and make sure all the doors are locked
Bury your garage and make sure you use lots of rocks
Call the manufacturer and wait a couple days
Then wait for them to plant a few charges and then just run way away

It's a recall!
Leave your car alone before you're the next to fall
Call or email, just alert everybody
It's a recall!
Leave your car alone before you're the next to fall
Sirens or postage, alert everybody
It's a recall!
Leave your car alone before you're the next to fall
Morse code or smoke signals, tell everybody
Warn all your friends, just contact everybody
Tell everyone you know, tell everybody now
What are you waiting for?
Just hurry up and send a mail to every single person that you know
Tell... them... right... now
