The Lyrics

Some of this is drawn from real life experience. When I was in college I actually had my eye on a black and yellow (convertible no less!) Geo Metro. Unfortnately I didn't have the money to buy it so my dream was never realized. Sigh!
I'm alone waiting in the line for gas
In my car, a friendly relic from my past
I filled up a month ago, can't believe how far I'll go
People laugh and stare, But why the hell should I care

I remember buying her, the perfect dream
Folks were hoping I might change my mind
Black and yellow, looks just like a bumble bee
Driving in my Metro

Signed the slip, salesman did a little dance
Doubled over, laughed so hard he split his pants.
He handed over the keys
Buzzed around like half crazed bees
I can see him now laughing as I pulled away

Girls run away, I just don't understand
From my gas conscious little car
Tool around the city, with the top pulled down
Driving in my Metro

I remember taking her to school with me
Some people stared, then looked away
Can still hear the laughs that people shot at me
Driving in my Metro

I'm alone sitting in the line for gas
Seat is perfect, molded to my giant ass
Might not seem to all so strange, if it wasn't like a bug deranged
I let them laugh and offer no apologies - sorry

I remember picking her, the perfect dream
No way in hell I'll change my mind
Love driving round town in my puff of cream
Driving in my Metro

LOL, Cookie-man. I feel your pain. My dream car was a hot pink Geo Storm. Remember those? Fabulous job!

Nice work, my Cookie friend! I, shameful as it is to admit, continue to LIVE the Metro dream...it's a hatchback, too...as if you couldn't think of anything sexier than a regular old Metro. It is surprisingly roomy, and can accommodate...if you want to know the truth...(secret shout out!) No wonder I'm the sexiest Elf on Earth...555!!!

NO! Don't drop that "it gets me where I need to go" line...you drive with PRIDE, future metro owner! Hold your head up high...(but not too high...or it'll scrape the roof of the car!)

Great parody to my favorite song. 5's all across the board. Now, no matter where I am, I hear this song, I will always sing "Riding in my Metro". =P
