The Lyrics

For the non-Yanks out there, a Hummer is the pet name in the US for the Humvee... a monster gas-guzzling tank of a car, popularized by the military.
(If I could I'd lose rust Hyundai)

If I could I'd lose rust Hyundai
Or pass to my wife used
It could girly be - that Hyundai
Humvee then I'd get new

No scorn, hip for thrills - I'm tearing through the hills
Hummers will a-never be surpassed
Squashing daffodils while honing driving skills
Rodding in all weather, with two dozen beers in Esky
Go on, gas burn - go on and gas burn

If I could just cause lots of dents
And carve cars into parts
It would be a fender moment
Not stalling now I've started
Cars slung randomly stacked in piles of three
I pray, not Hyundai, want Hummer

(Slow-flown whippoorwills are clinging to my grill)
(Hummer was a-stunnin' 'em - splat! bash!)
(Lots of stuffed landfills are growin' with my kills)
(Or be a mean mother - I could keep them in the crisper)
(So I'm a**hole - so I'm an a**hole!)

If I had to cruise on pavement
I'd drive o're shopping carts
It would be to render torment
Appalling crowds at Target
Snarling, it would be the right style for me
That's why, not Hyundai, want Hummer

(I wish I could lose that Hyundai)

IMO, any piece of writing or prose that can create such vivid visuals in ones head is a winner - and you guys always manage this. Excellent stuff !

It surely is 'a fender moment'. Exellent pacing and funnier than a tow truck towing another tow truck.

Loved the word pictures, but I'm not familiar with this Nat Cole song, could you hum 'er for me.

Glad everyone liked it! I wasn't sure how familiar people would be with this song. It is the earliest song I can ever remember hearing on the radio (and that ought to provide a clue how old I am!) :-0
