Dead Car Battery Blues Weird Al Yankovic
Well I, can't go to the park,
I can't go to work.
I can't do nothin',
I gotta stay in my house like a jerk.

How come I always lose?
My car has blown a fuse.
Oh yeah.
I got hydraulic fluid leakin' in my shoes,
And the dead car battery blues.

You know, can't visit my girlfriend,
I can't go to school.
I can't go anywhere,
Gotta stay in my room like a fool.

'Cause I got grease in my hair,
My Belvedere's in disrepair.
Oh yeah.
I got hydraulic fluid leakin' in my shoes,
And the dead car battery blues.

So I, went to see my mechanic,
He said, "Okay, now, what is wrong?"
I told him my car wouldn't start,
He said, "This shouldn't take very long."

So he, replaced all my plugs and my points(?)
And he looked at my carburetor.
He took out my engine and turned it around(?),
And then seventeen hours later

He looked at my headlights and said,
"Son, how long have these things been on?"
I told him, "Oh, about three or four weeks,"
He said, "Buddy, I know what's wrong!
But I hate to be the one to give you the news,
You got the dead car battery blues."

So now I, can't go to my office,
Can't work on my job.
I might as well lock myself up in my room
And live my life like a slob.

How come I always lose?
My Belvedere has blown a fuse.
Oh yeah.
I got hydraulic fluid leakin' in my shoes,
And the dead car battery blues.
