The Lyrics

The cops are taking, my mitsubishi
The impound lot is where it's stored
I ran through red lights, I sped through traffic
Now I don't see it anymore

I'm stuck with parents, driving me places
Can't drive down to my favorite bar
I drank tequila, behind the wheel-a
That's why they took away my car

Don't go trying, to text your girlfriend
All the policemen stop and stare
They have my picture, they have my record
I thought they wouldn't seem to care

I don't want public transportation
I never want to walk that far
I just want someone to lend me money
Because they took away my car

I need to know that I can drive again
The Mitsubishi that I knew
What will it take to get you back to me
Eight Hundrerd dollars, taxes too

Except for paying for gas and oil
Please bring me to where you are
I could not drive you, any better
So please just give me back my car
