The Lyrics

This song is based on a true story that never happened. It's about somebody who is sold the crappiest car ever manufactured by man.
I got a bad car
I can't drive that thing anywhere
I got such a cheap deal
Maybe I got it at a garage sale
Anything is better
That junk cost me zero, had nothing to lose
Maybe I'll sell that junk
I'll sue the salesman, gon' take him to court

I got a bad car
And I got a plan to get that saleman sued
I Probably bought it at the convenience store
That piece of s*** don't really cost a lot of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just call me a lawyer and have them pay money
Then that jerk can get a job
And finally see what it means to be a moron

You see that old man's got a problem
That man is so old, he'll sell some cars to kids
I say his body's too old for working
I say his fine will be payed to me in full
I wanna go off and sue him
I know the Judge will find in my favor
I know that salesman's gonna go to jail for fraud
He should go to jail for what he did

I got a bad car
But did it cost enough to make it not look gay?
I gotta make a decision
The lawyers here my story or I will cry
How would you like only half a steering wheel on your car??
The manufacturer was really drunk
Why can't cars like these be recalled??
I'll buy better cars when I'm older

And I had a feeling that it belonged
in the dump, being crushed and destroyed, one piece at a time
One piece at a time

I got a bad car
Enough room for a billion circus clowns
The car's small and I'm tall
It's a Ford made in Nineteen-Hundred-and-Twenty
I know I should know better
It was not properly promoted
They will get a huge lawsuit
That's what I get for livin' in the suburbs

I got a bad car
I'll sell it so someone else pays the bills
That guy was drinking late at the bar
It has no seatbelts to protect my young kids
Oh, I should have known better
I hate this car, and I hope I can just hide it
I got no plans! I ain't going nowhere!
So take this damn car and keep it away!!

I bought a new car
And it is better than that crap I threw away
Already made a decision
Locked the man up and threw away the key

Gimme one reason to post here, and I'll give you triple fives. Maybe we could do a bad-car concept album. Kenny could contribute "Car Full of Holes," and I've got "A Matter of Rust."

I was kind of disappointed because you left out that part where he sings " and I remember we were driving, driving in that car it went so fast until", well however that part goes I would have liked for you to do a parody of that part of the song, otherwise I thought your parody was humorous.
