The Lyrics

As anyone who has read and/or performed any of my parodies would know, I am a diehard motorhead. On December 23, 2006, I acquired a car magazine that contained an article about a Khrushchev-era Czechoslovakian sports car called a "Skoda Felicia Super Sport", which looks like one of those little red amphibious sports cars and is not connected to Chevrolet in any way. Less than 3000 Skodas of all types were sold in North America, so I decided to write this little ditty about a man and his goofy little car.
I saw her at a yard sale in old Idaho, among the used furniture and the worn-out clothes
S-k-o-d-a, Skoda
I walked up to her, the price was $800
I looked at the front, and in big chrome letters, it said "Skoda"
S-k-o-d-a, Skoda

Well, I'm not the biggest sports-car fan, but when I looked at her, she would make a great project
Oh, my Skoda, S-k-o-d-a, Skoda

Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why one would buy a Czech-built car during the Cold War
Oh, my Skoda, S-k-o-d-a, Skoda

Well, I drove back home to Oregon, and I ground the gears
Because the gol-darned shift pattern was reversed
I looked at her, and the front grille was busted up
And I said "I'm gonna make you look new again!"
Well, I'm not the most talented man, but when I went to Idaho, I brought home a Skoda

Skoda, Sko-oh-oh-oh-da, Skoda

Skoda, Sko-oh-oh-oh-da, Skoda

I replaced the top
I re-did the seats
I repainted her
I got into the driver's seat and was as pleased as can be

Well, that's the way that I want it to stay
And it will always be that way unless cars are outlawed
Sk-oh-oh-da, Skoda

Well, I sold my Civic just a week before
And I's never owned a classic before
But the Skoda changed my mind
So here I am with a goofy old car!

Well, I'm not much of a conformist-type man
But I know what I like, and I like my Skoda

Sk-oh-oh-da, Skoda
Sk-oh-oh-da, Skoda...

Isn't there a Swedish hockey team called Skoda?

I know that Czech car maker, it was once the property of two German bicycle freaks. Nice work there Darrel... Blake = )

Nice song, that will please many Skoda petrolheads.... As to Skoda's fortunes, well since, Volkswagen-Audi bought Skoda up in the mid 1990's, & completely transformed it with regards to build qualit. . Coupled with a hunourous ad campaign that dispelled most of the jokes about Skoda, as a result, the Skoda brand has become highly popular & regarded in Europe.... In addition, some mainstream VW designs, were launched originally as Skodas, abeit with stylistic changes (For example, the last generation Volkswagen Polo, was based on the Fabia design launched the year previously...).

Well, I know nothing of the Czech language other than the meaning of "Skoda", and here it is: Damage. Hence some of the hurtful European jokes. Peace on earth, Darrell
