Me Car (Buddy Wasisname)

Ah, the salesman was a corker,
I said, I don't mind that,
Laying out thirty thousand
for an automobile like that;
So I started home, I figured
the only problem I could see
Was the buggerin' cough and sputterin'
all the way to North Sydney.

And her pistons went sptu,
And the sound of her horn was beep,
And the rear end rattled bllllllll,
Suspension shook it too rrrrrr,
And the wipers wobbled
pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe,
Overheated constantly,
And the whole thing seem to be
controlled electronically.

So I put her on the ferry,
boys, we sail over the deep,
But when we got in Port Aux Basques,
well, oh, what a misery;
I brought the car from Toronto
and figured that was it,
Though it looked like a million bucks
it was a piece of blong.

And her pistons went sptu,
And the sound of her horn was beep,
And the rear end rattled bllllllll,
Suspension shook it too rrrrrr,
And the wipers wobbled
pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe,
Overheated constantly,
And the whole thing seem to be
controlled electronically.

Half way 'cross the island
I was way out in the sticks,
I stopped for a feller who
had drove out in a ditch;
I didn't want his money
but he was headed to T.O.
I gladly swapped him for me car,
good riddence to me own.

And her pistons went sptu,
And the sound of her horn was beep,
And the rear end rattled bllllllll,
Suspension shook it too rrrrrr,
And the wipers wobbled
pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe,
Overheated constantly,
And the whole thing seem to be
controlled electronically.

And her pistons went sptu,
And the sound of her horn was beep,
And the rear end rattled bllllllll,
Suspension shook it too rrrrrr,
And the wipers wobbled
pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe pshoe,
Overheated constantly,
And the whole thing seem to be
controlled electronically.
