The Lyrics

Young men used to drive those old cars down in
Sweden, in the 80's and 90's in
Sweden, but they all disappeared
when the two-forty got cheap.

Young men, used to tune, to get many
Horsepower, the B-20 just cranked out
Horsepower, and I'm sure they liked that
the car smelled like a lot of plastics...

Yes, I'm talking 'bout the one-forty-two,
the old trusty Volvo one-forty-two

It had triangle brakes,
narrow steel wheels
and the body looked like a box

Yes, I'm talking 'bout the one-forty-two,
the old rusty Volvo one-forty-two

They used to paint them all green
Well ya' know what I mean,
it was a helluva crappy car!

Took over, after the one-twenty one-forty took
over, you still got dual SU carbs like a
Rover, but the quality got worse
than it was on the Amazon!

In the year of seventy three, it got a
facelift, grille made of plastic used to
whistle, the turning signals got huger
than on a big truck!

Yes, I'm talking 'bout the one-forty-two,
the old trusty Volvo one-forty-two

It had triangle brakes,
narrow steel wheels
and the body looked like a box

Yes, I'm talking 'bout the one-forty-two,
the old rusty Volvo one-forty-two

They used to paint them all green
Well ya' know what I mean,
it was a helluva crappy car!

Those days, people think that those cars are
pure classics, but it still got a meaningless
chassis, that makes the body lean over
and feel like chewing gum.

Later, they released something called a
two-forty, looked the same, Volvo said "all new",
but I'll tell you boy, it only got worse,
got a front end from another ugly Volvo

The one that was called the V-E-S-C!
Yes, I'm speaking right, the V-E-S-C!
It looked like a hog
Probably ran like a frog
and created a lot of smog!

But this song was about the ONE-FORTY-TWO!

Leave it to a Swede to criticize his "own" cars--thought-provoking, but spotty pacing/rhymes. 4-3-3.

Another Swede arrives here on AmIright... and it turns out to be a "raggare"! Why am I not surprised. (You¬'re not Mattias from Vimmerby Folkh√∂gskola, are you?).
