The Lyrics

A tribute to my car, a 1985 Pontiac 6000 STE fondly known as the "6K". Just about everything in this song is true. (Here's a picture of the beast: )
Rolled off the line, model year '85
Been twenty-plus years and my car's still alive
My Pontiac 6000 is fun
The rare Special Touring E-di-tion
And you should hear that baby run

It won't ever win any points for beau-ty
It just earns its keep and it does its du-ty
The body has dents and the paint is dull
It idles at 90 de-ci-bels
The muffler's stock and has no rust

And I love my 6K
It's not very fast
It won't go that far on a gallon of gas
You feel every jolt
It rides like a truck
The Kelley Blue Book rates it $800 bucks
I hope it's still safe
It has a few leaks
Go over a bump, something rattles and creaks
But it's my 6K
I love my 6K

You need a new car, my dad will say
(Almost got a Mazda Protege)
But I won't give that Poncho up...

If the wiring maze
Inside of the dash
Should ever go out it means bundles of cash
[If] the switches won't switch
The starter won't start
We go on a trip to the local junkyard
But what can I say?
The car's fun to drive
The engine runs strong right up to 85
I love my 6K

(no Protege...)

Sometimes the dashboard lights start to blink
And the check engine light comes on
Or maybe a low lamp power warning
For the brake light that's wired wrong
Heat must be on...


Before you say surely I must be men-tal
Oh, don't you see
Its value to me is all sent-i-men-tal

Even though my 6K
Has 14-inch wheels,
It's still quite a nice - little automobile
There's not much to see
[When] you open the hood
But you can't deny that it handles real good
I love my 6K
I know what I like
And this car sure beats riding [a] bike
I'm driving away
I love my 6K

Love my 6K
Love my 6K
Love my 6K
Love my 6K

(SOTM) Good.

(SOTM) A far cry from the days that Pontiac sported the classic Trans Am and GTO models, but then again, I'd rather gas up a 6000 than a '72 Laurentian nowadays. Those things were boats. My kid's have to eat. Good work.

Michael - a Laurentian eh? Sounds like you're Canadian. That's one of those Pontiacs that was named differently for Canada - I believe it was sold as the Bonneville in the US.

(SOTM) I think you summed up every car I've ever owned and my opinion of the them with "And this car sure beats riding [a] bike". . .I like this song because it is very real and people can relate to it. Your username kinda gives away your love for cars, but to be honest I did not know this is what you meant-good job.

(SOTM) a sentimental tribute parody to a car- not exactly funny (and it didn't mean to be of course) but another fine writing job wannabe - 555
Johnny D - February 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Good example of clever and creatively appropriate verse structures that communicate lyrical rhythms.
Tim Mayfield - February 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) So the 6K isn't worth 6K, huh? Well, at least its worth 555.

SOTM - VERY good for a car based parody. 5-5-5
Red Ant - February 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I took a look at the beast... the body's not bad, really. "It idles at 90 de-ci-bels -The muffler's stock and has no rust" - blown exhaust manifold gasket perhaps? Anyway, this was a good tribute to all those cars we've had that only we loved. =)
