  • Song Lyrics:
    There are Four variations on the Demo of Stop Draggin' My Car Around. Here are the complete lyrics for all Four vocal takes.

    Stop Draggin' My Car Around - Demo
    "Version One" recorded 8-22-81
    No Musical Mike overdubs present
    The "Eat me" version (Unreleased)

    Had to park my car for just five minutes
    I had to go inside to use the phone
    When I came back again my car was gone
    Well I, I didn't know it was a loading zone
    It was a bummer
    I was so brought down
    I chased that lousy tow truck all over town yellin'

    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my car around

    I was cruisin' doing sixty in the fast lane
    Guess I must have hit some broken glass
    I had a blow out and I started swerving
    Tried to pull over but I ran outta gas
    Yeah I was stranded, I was blocking traffic
    I had to run and call the Triple A
    Got back in time to see the highway patrolmen
    They were towing my car away

    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my car around

    Wooo oooooo

    Now I'm at home, I'm watching Gilligan's Island
    I guess I oughtta trade my old car in
    For twenty dollars and my '64 Plymouth
    Maybe I could get a second hand Schwinn
    All of a sudden there's a tow truck in the driveway
    I grabbed the driver and I asked him why
    He said, "I'm sorry but you're late with the payments"
    "It's time to kiss your little car good-bye"

    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my car around

    Stop draggin' my car around (Aw come on man, I just had the hubcaps painted. Give me a break)
    Stop draggin' my car around (Aw man. Hey, I left a sandwich in the back seat. Hey!)
    Stop draggin' my car around (Aw. Hey listen, the check's in the mail. No, really.)
    Stop draggin' my car around (Hey! Hey! Eat me! Go on, eat me!)
    Stop draggin' my car around

    baby, baby baby baby baby-y-y-y (Go on. Go on.)

    (assorted claps, laughs and choking noises)

    "Version # 2 Two" 8-22-81 [Date printed in CD booklet]
    Alternate Lyrics - Released on Dr Demento Basement Tapes CD # 10 2002.] With Musical Mike Overdubs. Fade out. The book says This is the Original Demo, but the "Eat Me" demo above 'sounds' like an earlier recording [speculation].

    Had to park my car for just five minutes
    I had to go inside to use the phone
    When I came back again my car was gone
    Well I, I didn't know it was a loading zone
    It was a bummer
    I was so brought down
    I chased that lousy tow truck all over town yellin'

    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my car around

    I was doing over sixty in the fast lane
    Guess I must have hit some broken glass
    Had a blow out and I started swerving
    Tried to pull over but I ran outta gas
    Yeah I was stranded, I was blocking traffic
    I had to run and call the Triple A
    Got back in time to see the highway patrolmen
    They were towing my car away

    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my car around

    Now I'm at home, I'm watching Gilligan's Island
    Guess I oughtta trade my old car in
    For twenty dollars and my '64 Plymouth
    Maybe I could get a second hand Schwinn
    Look out the window there's a tow truck in the driveway
    I grabbed the driver and I asked him why
    He said, "I'm sorry kid you're late with the payments"
    "It's time to kiss your little car good-bye"

    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my
    Stop draggin' my car around

    Stop draggin' my car around (Hey man, give me a break I just had the hubcaps painted.)
    Stop draggin' my car around (Hey, I left a sandwich in the back seat.)
    Stop draggin' my car around (Hey, the check's in the mail. No, really.)
    Stop draggin' my car around (Ohhhh. Ohhh!)
    Stop draggin' my car around
    ( Fade out)

    Well, this is listed under Demo, so I wanted to help supply all the variations of lyrics that are known. The demo version played on the Dr D show before 2002 is the third set of lyrics. The one after 2002 so far has been the Basement Tapes version - the 2nd set of lyrics. I haven't check the MMA shows to check them. I was just trying to give the most accurate info. I spent a few nights really comparing them back to back. One other interesting fact is the original demo (broadcast before 2002) always ran fast on all the broadcasts. I Don't know why. The Basement tapes version (played after 2002) was pitch corrected to match the 1st album version.

    So which is it? Are we treating different studio versions separately or not?
