The Lyrics

Well, no offense to those of you Tempo owners out there; I've never owned one and never will, but I thought it would make a fun parody.Just to clarify for those of you who aren't familiar with Ford, "LX" is the trim level.
I'm not happy, "cause today
I bought a red, Tempo LX
It's so ugly, I'm so shamed
A '92, with broken mirrors
When I park it, then every day
They all will stare, with Tempo glare
No door handles, broken tape
Player – Oh God!

Cassette...
Cassette...

Paint so phony, starts to fade
No longer red, it makes me sad
Now it's beige-y, extra lame
The trunk don't work, the clutch is burnt
Just got cited, tail lights break
The cops don't care, but they just stare
Think it's funny, that I paid
To own this Ford

LX...
LX...
LX...
LX...
LX...
LX...
LX...


Got cited, my taillight is cracked
Car's hissing, the police just laugh
'92, Ford Tempo is whack
I'll kill you, take this Tempo Back!

Got cited, my taillight is cracked
Car's hissing, the police just laugh
'92, Ford Tempo is whack
I'll kill you, take this Tempo Back!

Still not happy, this old crate
With all its dents, it's always dead
So damn ugly Ford's ashamed
What they've produced it bring me tears
Every mornin' the people say
"Look if you dare," it just ain't fair
Looks like vandals, took my tape
Player – Oh God!

I wept...
I wept...
I wept...
I wept...
I wept...
I wept...
I wept...

Can't drive it, repair bills are stacked
Car's misting, radiator's cracked
I've lost 2, of my black hubcaps
I'll kill you, take this Tempo Back!

Can't drive it, repair bills are stacked
Car's misting, radiator's cracked
I've lost 2, of my black hubcaps
I'll kill you, take this Tempo Back!

444, not bad, could use alittle revision. This is a pretty rough song to do parodies(I know from experience).

92 Ford Tempos were what the driver's ed shcool I went to used. Those cars were admittedly abused, but they still sucked. 5s for varying the lines, catching the internal rhymes and speaking the truth about this car.
