The Lyrics

Sitting in 5 O'clock traffic, I noticed that it is getting harder to tell cars apart. They differ only in name.
I was stuck in a traffic jam on the thirty-seven interstate
When there comes a red convertible with a driver who did state
His Caddy was a dreamy car, It was his finest ride.
So I said I was a dealer, and I told him that with pride
He asked me if I'd had a car with so much style and class
And I said, "Listen Bud. I've driven every car. Funny you should ask!"

I've driven every one, man
I've driven every one, man
Drove every one I swear, man
I've breathed that new car smell, man
Autos - drove them here and there, man
I've driven every one.

I've driven a:
Yugo, Alero, Cargo
Infiniti
Geo, Winnebego, Tahoe
Mitsubishi
Mercury, Denali, Cherokee, Super Duty
Envoy, C R V, L T D, Carrera GT,
'Stang II, Subaru, Malibu
A GTO, Sorento, Murano, Volvo
A lot of dealers I know

I've driven every one, man
I've driven every one, man
Drove every one I swear, man
I've breathed that new car smell, man
Autos - drove them here and there, man
I've driven every car.

Sedan, Caravan, Nissan

Oh Susannah!

I've driven every car, man
I've driven every car, man
Drove every one I swear, man
I've breathed that new car smell, man
Autos - drove them here and there, man
I've driven every car.

I've driven a:
Highlander, Spyder, Boxter

I've driven every one, man
I've driven every one, man
Drove every one I swear, man
I've breathed that new car smell, man
Autos - drove them here and there, man
I've driven every car.

Drove every one I swear, man

Autos - drove them here and there, man
[ Is there a make you haven't drove? ]
I've driven every one.

Hey M-dawg, I hope you are not driving on the street until you have a permit or a license. I just withnessed a 12 or 13 year old boy driving a red pick-up truck. He drove, I'm assuming his father to a convenience store where the man bought some beer and then drove him back into a housing area within a mile of the store but had to drive it on a busy city street. I'm thinking maybe the father didn't want to drink and drive so let the kid drive for him. And BTW the kid was not driving real well either.

I don't really know the song, so I'll just agree with everybody on the pacing....good parody.

On the off chance that you're still checking the comments on this 2 1/2 years after you submitted it, I'll say nice job fitting in so many makes and models, and even making them pretty much fit the rhythm and sound of the original song. I'll bet the verses must have taken you a long time to piece together; I kinda wish you would have put that same sort of care into the chorus(es). But, hey, well done.

Ditto what Spaff said. Truly the original mustang jockey right here.
