The Lyrics

Sometimes I like to do this one with a Mexican accent. Dedicated to the cars I've owned and ruined over the years.
How Can You Mend A Broken Car

I can think of Chevrolets
And trusty four-wheel drives
When everything was planned to run like new

I could never see po-ten-tial
For a busted valve or dif-ferential....and...

How can you mend a broken car?
How come my power train keeps fallin' down?
How can you stop
The plugs misfiring
Or those unnerving sounds?

And how can you spend more than you earn?
How can a cruiser get ahead?
Please help me mend my broken car
And get me free of debt

I can still feel the breeze
That comes up through my knees
And smells like antifreeze from days gone by

I could never see much la-ter
I'd be payin' for the ra-diator...and...

How can you mend a broken car?
Or keep a piston rod from flyin' out?
How can you stop
A muffler dragging
And scraping on the ground?

And how can you mend this broken trans?
How can commuters ever win?
Please help me mend my broken car
Or let me buy your Schwinn

I can still feel the grease
That smudges both my sleeves
And risky batteries that may've gone dry

I could never seem to borrow
Someone's crescent wrench to fix my carrrro, and....

How can you mend a broken car?
How can you stop the paint from flakin' down?
How can you stop
The belts mistiming
As they go round and round?

And how can you end installment plans?
How can my future look so dim?
Please help me mend my broken car
Or let me use your van

Lalada la la, la la la la la la........

I loved it, mostly because my car always breaks down

That's terrific! The song, not the situation. Definitely not the situation. Reminds me of "Car Full of Holes" by His Name Is Kenny.
