The Lyrics

asked my kin, if my keys, they had seen
they said, granny, yes indeed
you're welcome to blame us....we're not being mean
but we don't think that you drive so keen

granny, you can't drive your car
don't you know how old you are
granny, you can't drive your car
but dammit, you want to

i told my kin that my driving was good
and they said, granny, don't think you should
you make us nervous...we're out of our mind
because we think that you'll crash in time

granny, you can't drive your car
don't you know how old you are
granny, you can't drive your car
but dammit, you want to

please keep that cheap heap here

granny, you can't drive your car
don't you know how old you are
granny, you can't drive your car
but dammit, you want to

i told my kin, i must leave right away
they said, listen, gran, we got something to say
we took your car and we pulled out some parts
it ain't got no spark plugs so it won't start

granny, you can't drive your car
don't you know how old you are
granny, you can't drive your car
but dammit, you want to

please keep that cheap heap here
please keep that cheap heap here
please keep that cheap heap here
please keep that cheap heap here

I want to die peacefully in my sleep not like the other passengers screaming in utter panic in your Granny's car. Thanks for pulling those plugs. Here, I'm pluggin' three fives for this. Well done.

Amusing and cautionary. "please keep that cheap heap here" almost made me drive off the road, I was laughing so hard.
