The Lyrics

High gas prices....Papa hatched a plan
Mileage in mind....he found a dealer man
He's feelin' smug..
Papa's got a brand new Bug

Haulin' mama....and family to the scene
The ride ain't fancy...ain't no Cadillac I mean.
Just hear it chug..
Papa's got a brand new Bug

It jumps and it jerks
Too fast it won't fly
But, sure runs cheap...savin' bread for some rye
All purple and shiny
Ain't nothin' greater.
Hops potholes..
See ya' later, carburetor

Watch out, Mister
Papa's at the wheel
Don't go and jaywalk
Or his bumper you may feel, yeah
Respect that slug..
Papa's got a brand new Bug

Go Papa! jumps and it jerks
Crampy and small, but it works
Red light he just missed, cop shakes fist
Pa's flashin' them brights
When someone don't dim their lights
It rolls... like a rollerskate
Hey...come on
Hey! Hey....come on
Hey! Hey....turnin' right...out of sight..
Come on Hey! Hey!

Papa's got a brand new Bug
