The Lyrics

Cat requested that I write a song about Scions ... here it is.
Toyota could sell the Yugo,
And they could sell the Aztek
And people would surely buy them,
'Cause Toyota's *great*! Oh heck,
Just look on the road around you,
Camrys and RAV4s go by
Toyota is so successful,
Even something weird can fly!

Scion xB
Scion xB
Looks like a milk truck
I think that it sucks
Personally...
It has right angles like a block
A funky-looking shifter stalk
Gauges in center
Tick off both genders
Scion xB

It was targeting teenagers
Who thought it was heavenly
Though most owners I've seen lately
Must be pushing seventy
Don't know how it became stylish
To produce a car so square
It's a little world-beater
With styling by Frigidaire!

Scion xB
Scion xB
Cheesy mood lighting
It's truly frightening
Purple and green
Whatever made that engine cook
Ain't in that owner's manual book
Yessir I said it
You overrevved it
Scion xB
Scion xB
Go on and flaunt it
I do not want it
It's not for me
Fifteen grand buys you a brick
That is designed to make you sick
'Man, you should hear it!'
'I won't get near it!'
Scion xB

The motor is slow
It's balls to the wall
The wheels strain to peel
The gas mileage falls
The seats aren't comfy
Upright, kind of tight
A roof like a booth ... pay phone
(Yeah)
Hubcaps look like crap
Its horn sounds forlorn
Its beep says it's cheap
Its back end was shorn
The engine's too small
And that isn't all
The rest of it is, too!

Scion xB
Scion XB
They want our sales
[But] most think it fails
Miserably
A goofy car made in Japan
One of the strangest known to man
Portable boom box
Made up of toy blocks
Scion xB
Dealer concoctions
Not many options
Scion xB
Aerodynamics
Of the Titanic
Finally sailing
Man, that thing's wailing
What were they smoking?
Surely they're joking
Scion xB

You know the owner of the site owns an xB right? and an 89 Mustang 5.0 LX convertible... just sayin'

Van-tastic! I instantly related to all your xB zinging humdingers! Particularly liked the styling by Frigidare and aerodynamics of the Titanic lines...Great job!

You may have destroyed Chucky's car, but you destroyed it in a good way
John Barry - September 22, 2006 - Report this comment
Loved your various descriptions of the vehicle.

Great, WMJ! And thanks for fulfilling my request, you brilliantly wrecked the Rolling Refrigerators!

Now we know what the children of all those Gremlin buyers are driving.

Rex, I always thought the xA looked more like a Gremlin... and Chuck, I sincerely apologize with my fingers crossed in the nicest possible way. Cat, you're welcome; it was a fun one to do.

What do you think about RAV4's? 5's
bobpiecheese - September 22, 2006 - Report this comment
Ha! That was funny! You're lucky that one of the Transformers: Alternators happens to transform into a Scion xB, so I know what you're talkng about. Great work!

(SOTM) Once again, getting in early, and LOL! I'm really not into car parodies but yeah, this one was actually really good, 5-5-5

SOTM - Considering that ChuckyG is married with children now we may conclude that at least the backseat is comfy... [END MODE UNSCIENTIFIC THEORY]
bitchplease - October 05, 2006 - Report this comment
why the hell would you waste you time writing a song about how you hate a car? if you don't like it don't buy it. who are you trying to prove wrong? I own one and do you really think i give a flying shit what you or your gay little song think about it!
wannabemustangjockey - October 06, 2006 - Report this comment
bitchplease: If you hate it so much, then why did you spend the time to rate and comment on it? We all have our biases, but I believe I'm allowed to express my opinion about a vehicle that I personally do not like. You're allowed to bitch and moan all you want and ruin my song rating, but I think that an important part of song parodies is that they are not supposed to be taken as seriously as you seem to be taking this one. For your information, most of my songs are about cars I do or don't like. The format works (remember "Two Ton Paperweight"?) And if you had read the description at the beginning, you would have found out that I wrote this song to fulfill a request from another person. And on a final note, songs do not have a gender to start with and therefore cannot be gay. Have a nice day.

Excellent, again :-) Never seen or even heard of the Scion xB, but with your descriptions I reckon I'd recognize one if I saw it on the road. Just crossed my mind that you might like this (car-related) parody:- www.amiright.com/parody/70s/boomtownrats3.shtml

Having gone to a boys school, and been (and copped flack for) the only boy who had a zilch interest in cars, your trademark topic is a little exhausted on me, wannabe, but that's not to say I can't apprecaite a good write, which this as always is, and a good gag like "with styling by Frigidaire" - 555

(SOTM) Ugly car, beautiful parody. 555
Red Ant - October 19, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I wasn't familiar with the name, so I Googled a picture of the Scion xB. Apologies to ChuckyG, but that's even worse than the Element and the Aztek. Put together. I think it looks like the dwarven offspring of a Brinks armored car and, and, I don't know. Anyway, while I can relate to the looks, all other gears are grinding here. At least it isn't a Jetta.

Wanted to come back to this one again. I did enjoy this, especially the "Aerodynamics/Of the Titanic" line. Tim: *argh*!
Jeff Reuben - October 29, 2006 - Report this comment
Sotm-Sorry, cut the last comment short, had to tend to the little one. A buddy of mine just got a Scion, so I thought of him while reading this. I enjoyed it, worked very well for me (you certainly know your cars!)

(SOTM) See above! Yay, it's the first time I've said that!

(SOTM) I too was unfamiliar with the xB and Googled an image; yeah, that's one ugly car! For officionadoes of horrendous rides, check out the early (00-04) Fiat Multipla...eeeek! Great write, jockey. 555
