The Lyrics

Steve Miller doesn't rhyme very well. Sometimes in parody you rhyme badly on purpose for comical effect. I guess I'm doing the reverse here

Some people call it the smoke belcher, yeah
Some call it the worst of GM
Some people call it a menace
Cause it reeks of the pumpingas of smog
People walk around it, baby
Say I’m doin’ Earth wrong, doin’ it wrong
I’m in a hurry baby
I hurry cause I can’t steer, big rear, hit deer

Cause it’s a Hummer
It’s a guzzler
And it’s a bummer
And it’s a puzzler
I drive this loser when it runs
It’s a junker
It’s a clunker
It’s a smog test flunker
I call the tow trucks-it’s no fun Pee-yoo!

It’s the biggest car
That I ever could buy
I really loved the screeches
As the brakes apply
Hog the highway, hog the highway, do it my way I’m an ass
Hop in baby I’ll sure burn eighty in gas

Cause it’s a Hummer
It’s a guzzler
And it’s a bummer
And it’s a puzzler
I drive this loser when it runs
It’s a junker
It’s a clunker
It’s a smog test flunker
I call the tow trucks-it’s no fun Pee-yoo!

Yah-hoo
People keep waving sign at my baby
They say I’m driving so wrong
Well don't you worry, don't worry, no don't worry Greenpeace
Now I keep it at home
It’s the biggest car I ever could buy
But I hit the trenches and I sure did fly
Hogged the highway, hogged the highway, do it my way I’m ate some grass
Hop in baby help me up all the glass

Great job, but Hummer is no longer owned by GM. It is now owned by a Chinese company that I cannot recall the name of and couldn't spell or pronounce if I did. I've owned a few junkers in my day, most recently a Ford pickup and a Fiat 850 coupe, both of which I recently got rid of. My car that I drive now doesn't look like much, but it is reliable, safe, comfortable, gets good mileage and is very practical. (unlike a Hummer) 5s.

Governor Ahhnold will surely put his HummerStamp of approval on this one, Lord Dunkin' .

Liked this one very much - neat little echoes of the original lyrics too. A tuned-up 555

This one's a junker but it's no clunker, $555 to fill up that beastly behemoth.

This has that new-parody smell.

If I may get political, it is your choice, gas-gulling smoke-belcher that it is! :)

Your catalyric punverter is obviously functioning within normal operating parameters.

Funny - and thanks for making fun of Hummers. Didn't quite get the end. Maybe you were also smoking, not just eating the grass? And what are we doing with the glass? Fogging it? I know, I should go write my own parodies...
