The Lyrics

Needless to say, I detest SUVs. I consider them as nothing but four-wheel penis extensions. You might just as well drive a tank if that makes you feel more masculine and macho. They are awfully inconvenient and clumsy to drive, their fuel efficiency is abysmally bad, they are unmanouevrable and - most of all - they are very unsafe as their gravity center is quite high and they capsize easily.
Now look at them gung-ho's, that's the way they drive it
They burn the fuel on the SUV
That ain't frugal, that's the way they drive it
Driving the Hummer, wasting gasoline
Now that is trashing, I mean the way they do it
Let me tell you that just ain't fun
Maybe they run over on your little sister
Maybe they run over on your mum

We gotta drive these German-made autos
cars that consume gas meagerly
We gotta drive these Volvos and Fiats,
We gotta drive these Japanese...

See the little faggot at the steering of that Humvee
Yeah buddy that's his own car
That little faggot don't care of hit-and-running
That little faggot he's got head like jar

We gotta drive these German-made autos
cars that consume gas meagerly
We gotta drive these Volvos and Fiats,
We gotta drive these Japanese...

They go to war for the oil in Iraq
They go to war for oil in Iran
They gonna trash the nature parks, Alaska
Looks like the feast - of the Belshazar
That is trashing, that's the way they do it
Driving the Hummer, wasting gasoline

We gotta drive these German-made autos
cars that consume gas meagerly
We gotta drive these Volvos and Fiats,
We gotta drive these Japanese...

Now they ain't cosy, they ain't good for driving
It's awful clumsy driving SUV
They ain't agile, they ain't good to speed up
Driving the Hummer, wasting gasoline

Well done! I thought you did a very good job with this song, and I love the original. But I have to sell my Hummer now =) (no, I do not really own a hummer)

Nice job, Susanna...of course here in the Los Angeles, CA area SUV's seem to be about 50% of the traffic, at least on the Freeways. I'm not kidding...But only about half of that half tail-gate you at high-speeds while they are talking on their cell-phones...5's here...

I don't drive an SUV (my 1998 Honda Accord does quite well, thank you) and don't really care if anyone does or not. But for those who have views opposite mine, the reference to the feast of Belshazzar (Daniel 5, specifically v.27--"thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting"), considering his fate (that night he was killed, v.30) is a good one. Triple 5's for your work, the Belshazzar reference cinched it.

Great job! What you said is so true. Living on the West Coast, I see an abundance of S.U.V's; I wish I understood why so many people feel the need to drive big bulky vehicles. I don't, though; I drive a sports car; that's all I really need. Anyway, 5-5-5. ;)
