The Lyrics

Levity...
As I drive along,
I wonder what went wrong,
With our pedal, a pedal that was so strong.
And as I still race on,
I think of the things we've done
Together, a-while our car was young.

I'm a-drivein' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' the brakes were here with me,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder,
Why,
Why, why, why, why, why she ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where I will die-aye,
My little runaway,
Run, run, run, run, runaway.

I'm a-drivein' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' you stop right here,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder,
Why,
Why, why, why, why, why this car runs away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where I will Die-aye,
My little runaway,
Run, run, run, run, runaway.
Run, run, run, run, runaway.
Run, run, run, run, runaway.

I'm real surprised we haven't had a "runaway" of parodies entered for this. This was great. LOL

What's small, green, and uses broken syntax? A "Toy-Yoda"! Dangerous it is! ;D

DKTOS but high revving parody

I echo all comments above! Another lemon of a car in one day! And it's also scary driving a car when the brakes don't work, especially driving on the highways with bad brakes (shudders)! Good thing I don't own a Toyota! I'm very satisfied with my Honda CRV SUV! It runs great and good to drive with in the snow. You sure cruised about 555 mph with this one!

Agreed with all above! Excellent parody, doomed car company. 5s FTW.
