The Lyrics

This parody is about General Motors and its inevitable bankruptcy. My apologies go out to those who are offended by the lines about GM products being poorly-made and heavy on fuel consumption.
GM sitting at the brink of death,
Cannot sell their goods, and they may die
All their cars,
They’re poor-quality, and guzzle gas

Bankruptcy for the old GM,
Took those fed’ral loans, din’t pay ‘em back.
All their cars,
They are only waiting for the crusher to crush them

GM, fly,
GM, fly,
Into the grip of a federal court

GM, fly,
GM, fly,
Into the grip of a federal court

GM sitting at the brink of death,
Cannot sell their goods, and they may die
All their cars,
They’re poor-quality, and guzzle gas
They’re poor-quality, and guzzle gas
They’re poor-quality, and guzzle gas

I wish you had picked a longer song or one with more lyrically to work with, but good job and timely with what you had!

After giving all our money to GM and Chrysler, who can afford to buy a car? Even if you could find a dealer still open. Just a preview of what Our Lord and Saviour will do when he seizes control of the hospitals and drafts all the doctors and nurses into National Service.

Just to add to Patricks comment, why would the US government hand out so much money to a failing company that was all more or less closed. Its kinda like a horse race noboby would put thier money on a blind three legged rocking horse that wont win, but the US seem to think so very wierd

Thanks Christie Marie... I haven't had the best of luck with GM vehicles, and I'm currently driving a 1984 Ford F250 pickup that is ugly but reliable in case anyone wanted to know, thanks Gari, you're very much appreciated, and thanks again Gari, the US government is quite strange indeed, and it's rare that one encounters an Englishman as well-versed in American government as you are.

I consider 4 stillto be very good. I gave it 4s, 'cause the "crusher to crush them" line didn't seem to quite be in the original rhythm. Still enjoyed the parody a lot.
