The Lyrics

I forget who first suggested that I parody this song about Japanese cars, but here it is. This is not my actual position on imports, just so you know.
In Car and Driver, let's see what's new...
They wrote "We love it!" You said "us too!"
I sit there fuming and there's nothing I can do
Oh in Consumer -- Reports you hear
It's the best car they -- tested all year
I often curse them for their bias as they jeer

I'm feeling sicker, I'm feeling sicker
I see a million of them from inside my cell
I see Toyotas across the street there
And sometimes I want to send them all to hell
I'll have 'em burning up and burning down
Those damn Toyotas melting down

I'm burning Japanese
I want to burn cars Japanese
I really want to
Burn Mitsubishis
I want to burn Mitsubishis
I really want to
Burn Infinitis
I want to burn Infinitis
I really want to
Burn "Initial-D"
Because the car is Japanese
I really want to

I'm feeling sicker, I'm feeling sicker
I see a million of them from inside my cell
I'm seeing Hondas across the street there
And sometimes I want to send them all to hell
I'll have 'em burning up and burning down,
infernal Hondas melting down

I'm burning Japanese
I want to burn cars Japanese
I really want to
Burn a Nissan Z
I want to burn a Nissan Z
I really want to
Burn a Mazda 3
I want to burn a Mazda 3
I really want to
Honda CR-V
I want to burn a CR-V
I really want to

No Ford, no Dodge, no Jeep, no Chevy
Lin-coln, Bu-ick, whoa dude, no wonder they're broke
Everybody tells me Japan makes the best cars
Everybody buys them and I think they're brainwashed
(Everyone)
That's why I'm burning Japanese
I want to burn cars Japanese
I really want to
Run them into trees
Or off a dock into the sea
I really want to
Drop it 50 feet
Or take a switchblade to the seats
I really want to
Take it to derbies
And let me crash it as I please
I really want to

Smash it to debris
And paint it bright Metallic Pea
I really want to
Crush it like a flea
And I don't care if it ain't cheap
I really want to
Burning Japanese
Oh yes it smells like rice and beans
It can be fun too
(fun too, fun too, fun too)
Burning Japanese
It will be fun for you and me
And bring your mom too

Don't be afraid to tell us how you REALLY feel about Japanese cars, wannabemustangjockey-San. ;-)

555, very good parody, I have no particular view of car imports, but this one made me laugh.

It might have been me that suggested a car parody from you to this song, I'm not 555 percent sure but have a vague memory of that. :-)
