The Lyrics

Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Solo.
Just another car that's neat. That Power Seat is tough to beat. I need a car that will drive to my tuition. So I'll by an Automatic transmission. I'll get it with the color of lime. It can stop on a dime.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Fabric or leather.
For me to pay.
I've gotta.
Keep pushin' with the salesman whose name is
You know its Jim Weber.
When it's treated like a game.
You think you're losin' time.
Walkin' to the end of the line.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you let me drive.
Strapped in the chair of the salesman office. Why I'm here I said I was interested. Just been offered tea and bread.
I can't believe it. That's all I said.
But what he can't see. He ain't insterestin' me.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
My buying potential; has been torn apart.
I didn't want to buy from the start.
I'll look online to get a better deal.
I don't want to see the manager Neal.
I will build a car on vehix.com and, work with a dealer come to a deal before I lkeave the house and get caught in this mess.
This is becoming a test.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
Take me down to the motor city where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty. Oh won't you please let me drive.
OH WON"T YOU PLEASE TAKE ME HOME!
From the Motor City where the salesman are annoying and the car's aren't pretty.
OH WON"T YOU PLEASE TAKE ME HOME! From the Motor City where the salesman are annoying and the car's aren't pretty.
TAKE ME HOME from the Motor City where the salesman are annoying and the car's aren't pretty.
OH WON"T YOU TAKE ME HOOOOOME! Yeah! CHEVY! End

Red Ant - August 21, 2006 - Report this comment
I can see what you were trying to do here Alex, but it just didn't work. First of all, "Motor City" is not a good sub for "Paradise City", though "Motor Car City" would have paced perfectly w/ correct emphasis. "Lexus's" doesn't sub well for "girls" either. The format needs much work, mainly the need for serperating verses from the choruses and each other, but having done a parody to this song I can say that lyrics sheets available on the 'net flat out suck, and they all butcher the outro. So, in those cases, I line up the end line rhymes, something like this:

Take me down to the motor city
where the Fords are free and the Lexus's are pretty
Oh won't you please let me drive.

Now then, there is no chorus between the first and second verses, and all choruses are NOT identical, so a copy/paste job does not work pacing-wise. The "so far away" (x4) part is missing, and you seem to have an extra line or two in each verse, as well as an incorrect number of choruses later on. Sorry, better luck next time.
