Gareth Jones And The On Speed Band - My Car's Electric (Live version)
I toyed with buying a Toyota
But a hybrid's not my style,
I like electronics, calculators
And fuel is expensive if you pay by the mile
The fuel cell's for fools,
Hell, I'm not sure if it will even work.
I don't want water in my exhaust pipe,
Even if my car's a Merc
Hydrogen sounds like an option
A way of staying in motion
Though, like you I must admit,
I'm worried about an explosion.
I've decided to buy myself one of those electric cars,
I know it’s not large,
But at least I'm exempt from paying
The congestion charge.
My automobile’s electronic, it sometimes produces sparks
I'm gonna recharge it, when I’m down in the park.
My automobile’s electronic, it sometimes produces sparks,
My car’s electric, I'm gonna recharge it, when I’m down in the park.
I gonna buy myself a G-Wiz
It's environmentally friendly, costs little cash
Up to 30 mph, I hope I don’t crash.
It’s cute and small and friendly it's frankly fantastic
An just like a Sinclair C5
It’s mostly made of plastic
It’s iconoclastic, oh!
I’m having trouble with my BMW 5 series
It’s the I-Drive, the graphical user interface
I'm telling you, this is serious.
iDrive, U Drive
iDrive, U Drive
Oh! in a vain attempt to stop pollution,
I'll turn to technology for my solution.
Now that car’s are electronic, I'm going to have mine built
by Moog or Ensoniq.
Mine's broke down....
