The Lyrics

This is about the engine that went kaput in my bus at work this afternoon.
It heats up, it won't cool down
Starter motor cranks
Round and Round
Round and round and bang it goes
Lots of smoke, more engine woes

Every time I turn the key
Oil shoots out like waves in a sea
Smelly smoke, full of diesel
Fix it baby, go and grab a chisel

Engine-Engine-malfunction
It needs some urgent attention
Engine-Engine-malfunction
Engine malfunction

It makes me mad, it makes me fume
Stupid engine, Goes boom and boom
Keep it running, it may work
With the rust of a knackered Merc

Engine-Engine-malfunction
It needs some urgent attention
Engine-Engine-malfunction
Engine malfunction

I see some water on the yard floor
Its screwed up, can't take anymore
Stinking fumes, choking black smoke
Bent camshaft it is not a joke

I hear noises and see sparks
I see the battery leaking fast
Just when I think its gonna start again
I hear more bangs that its gonna strain

Engine-Engine-malfunction
It needs some urgent attention
Engine-Engine-malfunction
Engine malfunction

Every time I turn the key
Oil shoots out like waves in a sea
Smelly smoke, full of diesel
Fix it baby, go and grab a chisel

It heats up, it won't cool down
The starter motor cranks round and round
It heats up, it won't cool down
The starter motor cranks round and round
It heats up, it won't cool down
The starter motor cranks round and round
