Surely there's a better way for us to get around

than walking now for it's about to get me down

Why there once was a long time ago

but not anymore now they're just for show

Maybe some day I'll take you to see them

because the last ones made are in a museum

A few parts or pieces we'll be lucky to find

for they were called automobiles back in their time

When the price of fuel took an entire pay check

planes trains and automobiles were soon found wrecked

The fuel companies found that they weren't to bright

for they almost went broke almost over night

Now we walk or ride horses like in the old days

while the oil barons are on farms selling their hay

That's why we live off of the land out here in the wood

say is that there an old rusty hood

They're worth some money so we'll put it on our sled

and put it with that engine we've got back in the shed

Tomorrow we'll take them to old man Ford

he'll melt them down to make me a new sword

And I'll take my parts over to old man Chevy

he'll make me a lite shield for I don't want it heavy

Perhaps I might even go see old man Chrysler

because my battered old helmet needs a new visor

Can we take our rest over there in that lodge

It's the one owned by that old man Dodge

Yes I suppose that we should since it's a Sunday

wait isn't that a door from an old Hyundai

Hurry up and come on because it's about to snow

and it's not worth a penny it's from an old Yugo

Surely there's a better way for us to get around

than walking now for it's about to get me down

Why there once was a long time ago

but not anymore now they're just for show

Maybe some day I'll take you to see them

because the last ones made are in a museum
