The Lyrics

When is it gonna break down? When will you sell it finally?
I should've sold it long ago, but you're lovin' it too dearly
You know this can't go on forever, even though I like it, too
They don't make these cars like they used to
This boy's too young to be singing the bluuues...!

La la la la la, ooh ooh ooh

So goodbye, Model T Ford, you can stay in my grandpa's garage
You might be donated to Dearborn, make it to the Hall of Fame for cars
Back to reality--Henry's ghost is there
He built this Model T Ford
But it's been sitting there for 70 years, I'm buying a brand-new Fooorrd...!

La la la la la, la la la la...

What would you guess I want now? Explorer, F-Series, or Focus
Maybe I'll buy a Crown Victoria, or I could get you a Taurus
Escape to Expedition, maybe even a Thunderbird
It can be big or small
I'm going to town to buy that brand-new Fooorrd...!

So goodbye, Model T Ford, you can stay in my grandpa's garage
You might be donated to Dearborn, make it to the Hall of Fame for cars
Back to reality--Henry's ghost is there
He built this Model T Ford
But it's been sitting there for 70 years, I'm buying a brand-new Fooorrd...!

Oh oh oh, la la la la la, la la la oh!
