The Lyrics

Been done elsewhere, I know, but this is the version I came up with for our local karaoke nights. The first line was suggested to me by a friend at least 10 years ago. It took me that long to get around to writing the rest.
Eldorado, why don't you get better mileage?
I've been driving this pile o' junk year after year
And now I'm stranded at 3AM on the Northside
If you was a horse, I'd shoot your lame ass right here.

Don't you drive the Eldorado boy, it's time to turn the rotors
And it's leaking from the radiator hose
Now, it seems to me some fine things have been made by General Motors
But this stalled-out piece of crap ain't one of those

Eldorado, oh now the night's getting colder
And I'm stuck on the shoulder - I wish I was home
And I don't know why you won't go, and you're punk ass ain't talkin'
So here I go walkin' down the road all alone

Well, the heat don't work in the wintertime, but in mid-July it f*cking works just fine
The wipers only wipe on sunny days
I'm losing all my hard-earned dough - when my money comes, you make it go
away

Eldorado, I don't know what evil haunts you
But if anyone wants you, they can tow your ass home
Now it's raining - of course, your windows are open
So here I am hoping that you'll (let somebody love you)
I hope you'll let somebody love you
'Cause I sure as hell don't
The first time I performed this, a guy came up and introduced himself as the owner of a 1991 Eldorado that wouldn't start, and said his friends were laughing at him all the way through the song.

Well, no wonder it doesn't work: You're on the North Side. The El Dorado is a South Side car. Remember "Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown" on the South Side of Chicago? "He got a custom Continental, he got a El Dorado, too." Good parody, though.

I'm sure wbmj would approve! Great parody: loved the rhymes, in particular: "Northside/horse I'd", "wants you/haunts you" and "open/hopin'".

This song has some not-so-pleasant memories of my grandparents' 1981 Eldorado Biarritz, which had the "V-8-6-4" engine (which can operate as a V-8, a V-6 or a V-4 and was a piece of sh*t), and that car never ran right. They got very little for it on a trade-in for a 1997 Dodge Intrepid, which is a (marginally) better car. The 1996 Eldorado that a friend of mine who is an Iraq War veteran just sold was a much better car. By the way, I work at a nonprofit used-car lot, and every Northstar-powered car (Allantes, Eldorados, DeVilles and Olds Auroras) has had one or more blown head gaskets.
