The Lyrics

I found out after I wrote this that I am the third person on Amiright to title my parody "Little [something] Chevette". But you know, they kind of lend themselves to being parodied, both the song and the car. I used a lot of the original lyrics because they fit so well.
I guess I shoulda known
By the way you drove your car Friday
That it wouldn't last

See you're the kinda person
That believes in buyin' 'em cheap
Drive 'em and kill 'em fast

I guess I must be dumb
'Cuz I agreed to ride along with you
...This car's certainly been used

But it was late Friday night
I hoped that we'd be all right
Till you said what have I got to lose?
And honey I said

Little red Chevette
Baby it's hardly fast
Little red Chevette
You need a car that's gonna last

I guess I shoulda closed my eyes
When you drove me to the place
Where your smog's checked for free

'cuz I felt a little ill
When I smelled the exhaust coming
Through the dashboard heater vents, choking me

Believe it or not
I started to worry
I wondered if I had enough air

But it was late Friday night
And you'd been drinking, all right
And you say, baby, do you actually care?
Oh yeah

Little red Chevette
Baby it's hardly fast, yes it is
Little red Chevette
You need to find a car that's gonna last

A beater like yours (a beater like yours)
Oughta be sold cheap (oughta be sold cheap)
'cuz it's on the verge of bein' obscene
('cuz it's on the verge of bein' obscene)

Move over baby (move over baby)
Gimme the keys (gimme the keys)
I'm gonna go and scrap your rusted-out red machine
(I'm gonna go and scrap your rusted-out red machine)

Little red Chevette
Baby it's hardly fast
Little red Chevette
You need to find a car that's gonna last

Little red Chevette
Honey you got to slow down (got to slow down)
Little red Chevette
'cuz if you don't you're gonna run your
Little red Chevette right in the ground

(little red Chevette)
Right down to the ground (honey the shocks have blown out)
You're the laughingstock of the town (little red Chevette)
You're not movin' very fast (not fast)
You need to find a car that's gonna last

Girl, you got a car which can't be slower
And the ride...
I say the ride is as smooth
...As a John Deere lawn mower

Baby this car ain't fast
Little red Chevette
You need a car, you need a car that's
That's gonna last
(little red Chevette)
You got to slow down (you got to slow down)
Little red Chevette

'cuz if you don't, 'cuz if you don't,
You're gonna run your beater right into the ground (right into the ground)
Right into the ground (right into the ground)
Right into the ground (right into the ground)

We've been shouting out "Little Red Chevette" to the chorus for years. Great to hear some lyrics to go with the rest of the song... "I guess I shoulda closed my eyes When you drove me to the place Where your smog's checked for free 'cuz I felt a little ill When I smelled the exhaust coming Through the dashboard heater vents, choking me" Had me in stitches!
