Dear Mr Ford,
I dearly loved my van,
My '85 F150 was a beauty when it ran.
But it didn't run a long, long time,
So I buried it in the ground;
And sure it makes a little bit of smell,
But it never makes a sound.

'Cause things fell off, and things let go,
And nuts loosened up, and I was always being towed;
Things would seize and refuse to work,
And I always felt like a real jerk,
Out there on the road when my van wouldn't go.

So I got sick of dragging it 'ome,
Wouldn't it rot your socks;
Just as I fixed one thing on, another thing fell off;
So I buried it in the ground,
With a four inch pipe up through her,
And now I got me an '85 F150 Econoline sewer.

'Cause things fell off, and things let go,
And nuts loosened up, and I was always being towed;
Things would seize and refuse to work,
And I always felt like a real jerk,
Out there on the road when my van wouldn't go.

So, Dear Mr Ford,
Got thinking the other day:
You know myself 'n' the other fellers kinda like the old interior,
I guess we're willing to pay.
We're ordering a brand new van,
With them seats custom made;
We're gonna park it on top of the sewer pipe,
And that's where it's going to stay.

Things won't fall off and won't let go,
Nuts won't loosen up, I won't need a tow;
Things won't seize or refuse to work,
Though I might look like a real jerk,
Every time I got to go.
But it will pleasure me to know,
That my outhouse will be a Ford!
