The Lyrics

"Operation Repo" was a reality show that ran from 2006 to 2014 first on Telemundo and later TruTV in the US. It dealt with auto repossession scenarios allegedly based on actual events, but heavily dramatized and fictionalized. It's known for bad acting and a rather, uh, "large" cast. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Repo
L.A. repo, repo games
Nothing good comes from cheapness
When the bills start you tow my car away

Burly guy in dark wifebeater
Matt's the one they sent to meet her
Hitching up a Plymouth to the big ol' red truck
In the cab, he pulls the folder
With the script the show was sold for
Swearing at the debtor like a bleepity-blank

Ugly beater, lien unpaid
May I watch on Tru TV
Every scene an acted fever dream

Repo!

Just a show to watch at dinner
Never was an Oscar winner
Most of it is yelling, fighting, three or two chins

Opera-tion Repo made it
Till the show re-po'd their ratings
Shouting in the office, oh it's Sonia and Lou

Bloody repo, this is fake!
I don't like being lied to
Nudge and a wink, some folks still think it's true

Welcome back WMJ! It’s been too long since I’ve read your high intensity fueled stuff! By the way, Cars have become pretty important to me lately because I’m now a car salesman.

Welcome back! I missed this show back in the day, maybe a precursor to Top Gear? Fun stuff here.

Woohoo! Thanks for showing up; this is awesome! Shoulda known you'd find a way to make it about cars haha

Never saw this show. Sounds like "Cops", car style.

Missed this yesterday because frankly I didn't even associate the title with a reality show - sounds like quite an evil one - following a bunch of repo men taking back peoples cars?

Haven't seen this one, but have seen a much less believable incantation: "Airplane Repo", or some such crap. Anyway, WMJ, I really like the way you told the story in a few short verses - it all worked together very well. I thought the best bit was "In the cab, he pulls the folder, With the script the show was sold for". Exactly. Reality...

Nice job wannabe! Great pacing. Remember the movie Repo Man with Emilio Esteves? Very cool at the time. Never seen this reality show and I think I'll die that way. - 555
