Could someone write out the lyrics of that song? I get most of the text but there are parts which are not so clear for me.

God Drives A Volkswagen Thing
by the Asylum Street Spankers
(key of E)

I was tooliní along down the speedway
My mind not thinkiní a thing
Then I saw a vision of a holy roller
Thatís when I started to sing

God drives a Volkswagen Thing
God drives a Volkswagen Thing
And it changes color when He changes his mood
God drives a Volkswagen Thing

Now Satan, he drives a Mercedes
Itís long and itís black and itís clean
And he slams on the brakes on the entrance ramp
Because heís so dog-gone mean

God drives a Volkswagen Thing
God drives a Volkswagen Thing
And He never blocks up the passing lane
God drives a Volkswagen Thing

Now the Nazis, they built the Veedubya
So evil we still feel the sting
So when Jehovah wants to cruise around without gettiní recognized
He drives his Volkswagen Thing

God drives a Volkswagen Thing
God drives a Volkswagen Thing
With Jesus His jack, and Vishnu His spare
God drives a Volkswagen Thing

Now Elvis, he gave away Cadillacs
Which is easy if you are ďThe KingĒ
But God never bothers with a ra-di-o
From the backseat Elvis will sing...

God drives a Volkswagen Thing (dear Lord)
God drives a Volkswagen Thing
But it runs a flat nine in a quarter
God drives a Volkswagen Thing - hear them bells ring

For those that don't know, he's saying that it runs 9 seconds flat in a quarter mile - which means it can reach 150+ MPH within 9 seconds flat. But still doesn't hog the fast lane Laughing

Probably a T4...

the asylum street spankers were on NPR this morning. An excellent rendition of 'god drives a Volkswagen thing', apparently a studio recording you can download from

nprmusic.org

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123412698


I loved it and had the lyrics on screen when it was being sung.

Gunna see them on the 16th. They are a wonderful live band.

*Correction, they will be around the 18th. D'oh! Embarassed
