The Lyrics

We've all had crappy cars, right? Or is it just me?For non-Brits, a milk float is a little electric cart driven by milkmen that goes about 5mph
No more carefree driving
My car's not surviving
My mechanic's laughing loud, tears in his eyes
Costing me an arm and leg, I've been unwise

Slowing VW (uh-huh)
Garage bills making me blue
Slowing VW (uh-huh)
I tried hard to brake but my foot went through (my foot went through)
I'll trade it in for a bike or a horse, anything will do
Slowing VW, held together with glue

Old la-dies ha-rass me
I watch milk floats pass me
I have broken many toes, kicking the chrome
But at least I'm getting fit pushing it home

Slowing VW (uh-huh)
So easy to break into
Slowing VW (uh-huh)
It just chewed my tape of Blink 182 (Blink 182!)
Why I bought this rusty old heap of junk I will never know
Slowing VW, it's your very last tow

Tow away these three 5's, KR.

I'd have thought that was the best thing for a Blink 182 tape... ;-)

Great Job! Long Live ABBA!

Minor pacing nitpicks ("garage bills making me blue" and "old ladies harass me" would have to be stressed strangely to fit the melody). Otherwise, a decent parody--well-chosen rhymes and a funny topic. 4-5-5 from a long-time ABBA fan...

agree with above re slight pacing out but as the owner of a 1976 type 2 bus - loved it ;)
