The Lyrics

Disclaimer: The Cars are my favorite band, and You Are The Girl is a good song, but it kind of depresses me since it's off their last album, and they sound like mere shadows of their old selves. So I wrote this to console myself.
Why don't they play anymore
They used to be great
But once they did solo stuff
It now proved too late
As soon as Door to Door bombed
They went separate ways
What is the cause of all this?
Paulina's fault, I say!

(oh) Where are The Cars
The ones I used to know?
Where are The Cars
They had to let it go
Where are The Cars
(where are The Cars)
Now you hear 'em in bars
Where are The Cars?
I don't know.

Poor Ben got sick with cancer
Of that he did croak
Greg, Elliot do session work
So that they don't choke
Ric's busy producing hits
With his model wife
David did a turnaround
He lives the yuppie life (now)

(oh) Where are The Cars
The ones I used to know?
Where are The Cars
They had to let it go
Where are The Cars
(where are The Cars)
Now you hear 'em in bars
Where are The Cars?
I don't know.

Now people rip their stuff off
Like Fountains of Wayne
And don't forget The Killers
It leaves me in pain
Let alone Circuit City
Uses their song in ads
What is this world coming to?
It's making them seem bad!

(oh) Where are The Cars
The ones I used to know?
Where are The Cars
They had to let it go
Where are The Cars
(where are The Cars)
Now you hear 'em in bars
Where are The Cars?
I don't know.
