Not a car song.
More like a death of cars in the future song.
Mass transit and other horrors.

Standing tough under stars and stripes
We can tell
This dream's in sight
You've got to admit it
At this point in time it's clear
The future looks bright
What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

On that train all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes from New York to Paris
(More leisure time for artists everywhere)
A just machine to make big decisions
Programmed by fellows with compassion and vision
We'll be clean when their watching is done
We'll be eternally free yes and eternally young

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

Transfusion - Nervous Norvus

Post by Catblack » Sun Aug 03, 2008 1:17 pm

This is my father's favorite song. If you haven't heard it...lyrics below. See
or a longer article on it here:

"when Barry Hansen played this record on KPPC in October, 1970, the secretary told him he had to be "demented" to play it; the next week, Steven Segal introduced him on the air as "Dr. Demento" and the name has stuck since."


Tooling down the hightway doing 79
I'm a twin pipe papa and I'm feelin fine
Hey man dig that was that a red stop sign-
Transfusion transfusion
I'm just a solid mess of contusions
Never never never gonna speed again
Slip the blood to me Bud

I jump in my rod about a quarter to nine
I gotta make a date with that chick of mine
I cross the center line man you gotta make time-
Transfusion transfusion
Oh man I got the cotton pickin convolutions
Never never never gonna speed again
Shoot the juice to me Bruce

My foot's on the throttle and it's made of lead
But I'm a fast ridding daddy with a real cool head
I'ma gonna pass a truck on the hill ahead-
Transfusion transfusion
My red corpsuckles (sic) are in mass confusion
Never never never gonna speed again
Pass the crimson to me Jimson

I took a little drink and I'm feelin right
I can fly right over everything everything in sight
There's a slow poking cat I'm gonna pass him on the right-
Transfusion transfusion
I'm a real gone paleface and that's no illusion
I'ma never never never gonna speed again
Pass the claret to me Barrett

A rollin down the mountain on a rainy day
Oh when you see me coming better start to pray
I'ma cuttin up the road and I'm the boss all the way-
Transfusion transfusion
Oh doc pardon me for this crazy intrusion
I'm never never never gonna speed again
Pump the fluid in me Louie

I'm burning up the highway early this morn
I'm passing everybody oh nothing but corn
Man outa my way I don't drive with my horn-
Transfusion transfusion
Oh nurse I'm gonna make a new resolution
I'm never never never gonna speed again
Put a gallon in me Alan

Oh barnyard drivers are found in two classes
Line crowding hogs and speeding jackasses
So rememmber to slow down today
Hey daddy-o
Make that type O huh

Reverend Horton Heat -- Big Red Rocket of Love, 400 Bucks (That car would look so good in front of our house), Whiskey, Beer and Wine (Ever since you left me I've lived out of my car)

Junior Brown -- Highway Patrol, Broke Down South of Dallas, What's Left Just Won't Go Right

Let's see ...

Dresden Dolls -- the Jeep Song

It could be really fun. I am gonna make some mix CDs.

Ahh the Reverend! I will play Five-O Ford for you on my Mutant Vehicle. Maybe Galaxy 500 too.
