The Lyrics

Although I have had poor experiences with Nationwide Insurance including the fact that they always insisted on spelling my first name wrong (a pet peeve of mine) and refusing to acknowledge the fact that I own my condo rather than lease it, thus offering me renter's insurance instead of normal house insurance. However, the subject of this parody suffers far worse calamities than I, resulting in a full-body cast, confinement to a wheelchair and a fruitless trip to court. *DUBS: Expensive aftermarket wheels often seen on Cadillac Escalades and in rap videos. *Etnies: Expensive shoes worn by teenagers who want to look like rappers or skateboarding stars.
Well I was rollin’ down the road in my Yugo car
Got T-boned real bad by a Ford Aerostar
Called my insurance man, middle of the next day
Got scolded and belittled and I’m feelin’ like crap.
Oh they’re bad, they’re Nationwide.
Yes, they’re bad, they’re Nationwide.

Cruisin’ down the highway in a blue Pontiac
‘Twas a four-door Sunbird, far from a Cadillac
Hit head-on by a Honda runnin’ 20-inch DUBS*
He looks like Eminem, he's wearin’ Etnies* too
I’m insured by Nationwide.
Yeah, they’re bad, they’re Nationwide.

Well, I was suin’ my agent in the small-claims court
I had a scowl on my face, and my lawyer’s too
With my body cast and my wheelchair
Nationwide gave no money ‘cause they dint really care
They’re bad, they’re Nationwide.
Well they’re not, not, not, not, not on my side

This is NOT autobiographical.
