Facts:
  • A song about what total crap cars had become by the early '80s. It's this attitude that was to give us the SUV - and thousands of rollover accidents. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I'm in the Northside Hospital flat on my back
    My legs are broken and my ribs are cracked
    My front teeth are missing; I'm one big scar
    Don't ever have a wreck in a Japanese car

    Well, me and my buddy, we're out for a ride
    We had a couple of honeys sittin' by our side
    We stopped at a red light three cars back
    when this guy behind us gave us a tap

    Now I don't care how fat you are
    You're still not safe in a Japanese car
    I know they're pretty and they'll take you far
    but you're gonna get killed in a Japanese car

    I love my Sony Walkman, my Hitachi TV
    My Nikon camera and my new CD
    I time shift my viewing with my VCR
    But I'll never buy another little Japanese car

    There's not a song on the radio that I can't get
    with my new Nakamichi metal tape cassette
    Yamaha built this great guitar
    But I'll never buy another little Japanese car

    Now I don't care how fat you are
    You're still not safe in a Japanese car
    I know they're pretty and they'll take you far
    but you're gonna get killed in a Japanese car

    Give me a Ford or a Plymouth or a Chevrolet
    I want to live and see another sunny day
    I want steel all around me and a heavy frame
    These recycled beer cans crush and maim

    Now when you're cruisin' down the highway doin' 55
    and your little car is being blown from side to side
    Think about me wherever you are
    And you'll never buy another little Japanese car

    What would have been a fender bender years ago
    has broke my nose, chopped off my toe
    Planned obsolescence, that's all they are
    and you're gonna get killed in a Japanese car

    I'm in the Northside Hospital flat on my back
    My legs are broken and my ribs are cracked
    My front teeth are missing; I'm one big scar
    Don't ever have a wreck in a Japanese car

    Well, me and my buddy, we're out for a ride
    We had a couple of honeys sittin' by our side...

    Do you have a better copy. It skips after the two minute mark.

    there's an error in the lyrics, the correction is:

    "... my Nikon Camera and my new CB"

    (as in Citizen's band radio)
