The Lyrics

Don't take my car away from me
Don't you leave me stuck with RTD
If I flunk, I'm really screwed
Cause backing up is hard to do

Remember when I took this test?
You said I was in drive the best
But reverse I have no clue
Backing up is hard to do

I say that backing up is hard to do
How I blow, I blow can't get through
Those dings on my cars' rear end
Instead of backing up
I wish that I was whacking curbs again

I beg of you, just let me pass
I need this ride to score some ass
Come on, tester, some cash for you?
Cause backing up is hard to do

Not bad, I don't know what I would do without my car personally--I'm happily single though so guess I don't have to worry about it.

And when the tester is getting nervous as you careen toward the curb, you can sing, "Calm-a calm-a down, dude, hey dude, down down!"
