The Lyrics

Heh, this is what happens when I'm bored and have a few minutes to spare while something is downloading. Half the parodies I write are never written down, but I thought this time I'd give it a shot.
I never feel the cost is right
When I bring my car in
How do mechanics sleep at night
It costs too much to go for a spin

Mmm, mm, mm, mm
A flipping dollar for a minute
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
You spill, the oil's got a rainbow in it

Say, its only a busted break
Doesn't seem like too much to me
How the heck can it cost this much
To fix my SUV

Yes, it's only a dented hood
Barely something someone would see
How the heck does it cost this much
To fix my SUV

I need my cash
Else I'd be livin' in the dark
I need my cash
How can I spend it all to get my car to park

I bet you're lying half of the time
You're probably cheating me
How can it cost so much
To fix my SUV
Please don't be too hard on me, I know it sucks, but I'm pro'lly younger and stupider (yes, that it a word) than most of you ^^; Thank you for your time, C. M. R. Noir PS. No offense was meant to any honest/hard working mechanics, and only twelve pokemon were injured in the making of this parody.

It's a bit clever, the idea I mean. A few of the rhymes were cheap, but it was creative and I liked it. How did you come upon the idea?
