The Lyrics

Ever have "one of those days"?..............

As I'm driving down the street
See oil spilling on the street
And my tailpipe made a smokescreen, vision's gone
My mechanic just went on
A list of problems way too long
My only car, so my money won't last long
His asked of me for a full reconstruction
Said not now, cause of pay reduction
Wheels still spin and it gets me around
Just fix the problems today
Runs like yesterday
Then I'll take it back home and pray

It's not re-tooled again!

New day, I drove along
My luck had come undone
My car liberated from the floor, no more
My shoes scraping street, make flames
Like history, stone aged
Like a Flintstone, feet just push my car some more
I took it back hoped for some restitution
Mechanic said it needs new solutions
Won't you learn needs full fix all around
Just weld my floorboard to stay
No cash I did convey
As I drove it seems so cliché

Car got re-tooled again!
Oh no!

I took myself and some friends for a ride
It so happened we returned back alive
I guess no more problems I smile, shift to high
You know that spells trouble disguised, gonna die

Do I?

I'm racing down the street
Car's looking different to me
Now my bumpers just detached, flew right by,
And my tire on the left
Is now passing on the right
I crashed into a tree, stayed there overnight
Woke up in a medical institution
Said give thanks organ contributions
My body parts look changed all around
Doc said this is not my day
Transplant special day
Now as I walk on hooves, I say

I got re-tooled again!
Got re-tooled again!
No, no!

Neighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Ran a race course
Hooves never lost....

Thanks, Ann. I wish I had the means to do it!!!

I am still driving one of those myself. Liked the Flintstone reference.

"Yabba Dabba" thanks to you, Patrick!

I've owned all too many cars like this, considering that my price range for a car tends to be $500 or less and often from impound auctions (I drove a lot of formerly abandoned cars), and came close to a "Flintmobile" when I put a high-heel shoe through the floor of a Datsun B210, but I got something decent out of a mutual friend's estate not too long ago. The parody was hilarious, I too liked the Flintstones and organ-transplant references, and here's $555 to pay off your medical bill.

Like Timmy, I wondered why not jump on the CFC program, but don't quite see the part of the last (or fast) verse that says it's over. What did I miss? ...

Funny write as always, Mark, although I admit I though it was going to be about John Bobbit :-) (yeah, you can have that spin-off of the title if you want.) 555 horseshoes.

Neighhhhhing thanks to you, TT. As to my comment to Timmy, The last part of the song could be construed as how bad healthcare could be(having to rely on donated hooves!!) LOL
Mark Scotti - January 20, 2010 - Report this comment
Also to TT: That is a terrific idea about Bobbit!!!

Too bad you have to hoof it everywhere now, but I parted your car out and sold the parts on ebay and got $5.55 for bus fare for you.
Mark Scotti - January 20, 2010 - Report this comment
"Spare tire" of thanks to you, blackjack!!
Warren Baker - January 20, 2010 - Report this comment
The left tire passing on the right was truly inspired. I don't know about you, but sometimes I get this one good line in my head, and the rest of the song rights itself, er, mostly. Was that the line for you, or is there another means to the madness. While you ponder, here's 5.55 to help cover your medical expenses...
Mark Scotti - January 20, 2010 - Report this comment
You are truly a master, Warren!!! That is EXACTLY the line that popped in my head that drove the parody! Thanks for the vote!

You're sure going to need some auto insurance as well as life insurance, Scotti! This is so funny as always! This day will certainly "drive" you crazy! Here's a fixer-upper of 555's!

"Fixing" to give you thanks, Christie!!

I've had a few old bangers in my time, but luckily, I've still got my feet.
