The Lyrics

A GM girl buys a new Nova,
Sticks Jesus on the dashboard with glue.
An FM girl, listenin' to Elvis;
Car's horsepower, a buoyant 1-0-2.

It's a long drive--Fresno to Reseda;
On the freeway, trouble with the car. . .
Calls her boyfriend, who says he'll come to rescue her.
A message annoys her on OnStar:

GM's re-, recallin',
Her Chevy, recallin'.

Gets a flat tire, drivin' through the Valley,
He's let down--had vented 'em too hard.
No spare to employ; dead batteries in cell phone;
Can't save his girl; left home his credit card.

He can't be, be callin'.
His MG be fallen.
He's flattened; traffic creeps, crawling; angered,
She's bawlin'; GM's recalling; meanwhile. . .

All like cars broke down, on freeways stallin';
All like cars smoke, engines start to die.
And she's appalled, frownin' and huffin',
'Cause she'd driven less than ten miles.

Then she's re- recallin',
Bitterly recallin'.
Levity, recallin':
"No va" RE: Castillian.
