The Lyrics

hot damn...hummers sure are pretty
black as all heck, never dirty and gritty
fuel hikes...isn't it a pity ?
doesn't seem to be no cheap gas in this city

drive 'round...half a tank the gauge read
when i got to my block, nothing's what the thing said

but its quite a delicious pearl
"far out", say all the girls
come on, come on...let's drive all night
despite the fee, i believe i might

and babe...MPG in the so crazed
can't be more than five
but those hummers sure are pretty
yes, those hummers sure are pretty

cool car...sure ain't itty bitty
stereo whines when i'm playin' my ditties
need gas...screwin' off the liddy
gee, it looks i get no change back from my "fiddy"

but i'm breezin' and i won't stop
runnin' up a bill, boy, i'd love to see the cost drop

what a sight...i'm above the herd
way up...among the birds
come on, come need for fright
if we should crash, we will be alright

and babe...though i ain't j. paul getty
i will pay...for the sake of my ride
cause those hummers look so pretty
yes, those hummers look so pretty

Great stuff, Alvin! The first two words are my pet misheard lyric phrase. The concept fit so well with the original's rhythm and style. Great rhymes, but I'll be tootin' if I know what a "fiddy" is.
