The Lyrics

My friend had a '79 that gave him lots of problems.
Oh, such an ugly one, green looks so glum
On the Chevy lot it looked so fine, my green Nova
Hot, was how my motor ran, my motor ran
Takin' about my '79, my green Nova

Yeah, I boughtit stock, new as such, thought I was wise
Now I wanna give it up 'cause I'm fed up with the rust I find
Engine fries, hot overtime, doesn't run fine

M-m-m-my green Nova

Hatchback's not a closer, piece of junk, yeah
Or else it gets stuck to my surprise, won't open
Clock stop mystery, it gets to me
Pile carpet gets so dirty, smelly , odious

Took it to the shop, I gave up, on the fixin' binds
Luxury? Not that much for the bucks I paid on time
My, my, my, poor ride...

M-m-m-my green Nova
M-m-m-my green Nova (Bad)

A real muscle car I need, built for speed
Not the end of the first line, Nova
I was d-d-destiny, d-destiny
Must've been out of my mind to buy, a green Nova

Gotta reshop, give it up, pick another find
Camaro rough, V8 tough, a better ride
My, my, my, eye, eyes, see the prize
M-m-m-m-m-m-m-my, my, my, old ride despised

M-m-m-my green Nova
M-m-m-my green Nova
M-m-m-my green Nova
M-m-m-my green Nova

Sucker-sold, my green Nova
Wasn't bold, my green Nova
Truth be told, I hated my green Nova!!!
