The Lyrics

"Lemon" being slang for "piece-of-shit car" last I checked.
When a ma-an drives a lemo-on
He's on the fast-track road to he-e-e-e-ell
The slightest ni-ick and he'll spin on the grou-ou-ound
The car is ba-ad and he knows it
But it's all he-e's go-o-o-o-ot
Spews exhaust from the back e-end all over this town

When a ma-an drives a lemo-on
He has to duck each ti-i-i-i-ime
He brakes a-as hi-is headrest breaks free-ee-ee
While he hates to-o replace i-it
The whiplash is a pai-ai-ai-ai-ain
And he does have othe-er priorities

Well, this man hates his lemon
The way the mirrors like to cra-a-a-ack
And then snap off, and though that may su-uck
Buddy, it gets worse than tha-at

When a ma-an drives a lemo-on
The whole floor's a ho-o-o-o-ole
And all o-of the-e seats are squeaky-y-y
Though thi-is ca-an be fixed with tools
See, the man doesn't kno-o-o-o-ow
How to u-use them properly

When a ma-an drives a lemo-on
It's a dangerou-ous ca-a-a-a-all
It might blow up in his face, that hu-u-urts
Yes, when a ma-an drives a lemo-on
Constant paranoia, he fee-ee-ee-ee-eels
And I know, I-I kno-ow, how tha-at wo-o-orks

I'm that ma-an with a lemo-on

Wonder what'd happen if some poor Autobot scanned a lemon. Would they inherit the rundown nature? Or would they be perfectly fine and have to pretend to be crap as part of the disguise? Given how often the Autobots befriend mechanics it probably wouldn't be a problem for too long and I'm just rambling now.

I've driven a few of these. Check out my long-ago "Bank-Break Chrysler" or "Wee Electric Van".
