The Lyrics

I drove across town with no horses to spare
I was driving a Yugo but was gettin' nowhere

The car was overheating, it was hot as hell
I thought of giving up 'cause I couldn't stand the smell

Oh the wind and the rain and the sun came in
But what can you expect from a Yugo, so I started to grin

The women and the children and the dogs gave me the eye
I passed nobody, just watched as they all passed me by

It beats walking, 'cause lately I'm lame
I'd have bought a Cadilac if the payments had been the same

The rattling and the sputtering didn't get any better, ,just got worse
It quit going forward so I just put it in reverse

'Cause in a Yugo you get used to the pain
You creep right along whether it's sunny or startin' to rain

You don't take it to a dealer, it's disposable they say
Just throw it away when the 100 mile warranty is up, like today

If it makes it across town that' all she was designed for
You park it and walk 'cause in a Yugo you're going nowhere
