Parody Song Title:

"Kangaroos (vs Volvos)"

Parody Written by:

Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd

The Lyrics

This one goes out to my parody loving friends down under, out of the blue suddenly doomed to fall behind on the technological evolution because of their very special kind of wildlife, wreaking havoc in the progressing self-driving car industry, when such vehicles can't handle tracking kangaroos because of the unique way in which they move. What a crock(y deal)! Read more about it here.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Oh my - From Kangaroos I've buckles in the fender
Oh yeah - Now I must end my test drive, bite the bullet, drive away
These jumpabout Ozzies in pelt
Is stretching my self-tightening belt

Kangaroos - Car's overheated from rows of roo
Kangaroos - Profits down under is gonna blow
Kangaroos - Jump the estate as they're used to do
Kangaroos - Halting my car more than ice and snow
Roo! Roo! Roo! Roo!
Kangaroos - Volvo's not seeing the Kangaroos!

A.I. - I've tried a fresch reboot upon the clunker
Oh crap - I soil my jeans, as jumper-cables skids it to the right*
My self-driving car's on the loose
I'd jump on some self-running shoes

Kangaroos - Car's in the ditch, it might need a tow
Kangaroos - Poisonous snakes there's a fear, I know
Kangaroos - Never have I had to move this slow
Kangaroos - Death Metal's stuck on the stereo
Roo! Roo! Roo! Roo!
Kangaroos - Volvo is doomed by these Kangaroos!

And now it's a hooptie refuse
I'm flipped by koalas on cruise

Am I through? - "Car's on the barbie" states Cockatoos
In my view - Nowhere in sight is an ice bear though
Roo! Roo! Roo! Roo!
Kangaroos - Volvos mix better with Caribous!

Underoos - This line has none with the rest to do
Roo! Roo! Roo! Roo!
Underoos - Filling the rest out to get me through

Peter Andersson doing ABBA? Didn't see that one coming! ..... But I'll give you 555, regardless

^^Just kidding, K1chyd. I looked thru your Author Page and discovered it was a virtual ABBA-toir of ABBA-tunes ...... All moronic punning aside, it looks like you did a few; but fewer than I expected. But why no "Fernando"? Now there's an epically spoof-able song

In reverse it's starting to look like I'm on a car theme, one more has been posted already (and maybe I'll do one on The Fords of Norway next). As for bad puns, ABBA and the Australian leg of Volvo unable to get a jump on their competitors I can only add that I've jumped plenty on Agneta and Frida in dreams during early puberty - I think my muse might still be jealous, I get the cold hand most often when I want to touch their stuff.
