The Lyrics

For metric purposes, the accent on "Impala" is shifted from the second to the first syllable.
Wash it till it's sudsy,
Wash the suds down drain,
Get the soap off Impala.
Wash it and tomorrow
Watch sky pour down rain,
Get back soap on Impala.

A-blute, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! (2x)

Drive it, now it's cleanseful,
Drive it, show off shine,
Hit the road with Impala.
Driving this road's trucky,
Driver crossed double line,
Hit and broke the Impala.

Ah oo ga-ga-ga-ga-ga! (2x)

How'd you get licensed
For long hauls, to truck-drive, sir?!
You'll lose your license
When you're mauled by my shyster.

He will work the system
Till tears shower from your eyes
'Cause you broke my Impala.
Like my little brother
He towers less than 4' 5",
He's a rogue, my imp pal, law.

A-mi-cus cur-i-ae,* yeah! (2x)

You'll lose your license
'Cause you mauled my Impala.
(If you'd on veldt drive,
You would maul an Impala.)

Tell me:
How'd you get licensed
To haul loads of Impalas!

"I'll lose my license
Please call off your imp pal, huh?!"

(Sorry)

They'll be licentious;
Behind walls they'll impale ya.

"Ah, ow! No, no, no, no, no!
Ah, oo! Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!"


*friend of the court

Shouldn't your Impala have zigzagged to miss that truck? ;-)
