Porsche of Mine

With my apologies to Don Mclean.

AFJuvat

Porsche of Mine

A long long time ago
I can still remember how his car used to make him smile
And I knew if he had his chance; that he could make those ricers dance
and maybe they'd shut up for a while.

But February made me shiver. With every post that was delivered
Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step
I can't remember if I cried when I read about his Oil cooler fried.
But something touched me deep inside the day his Porsche died.

So bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
But now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.

Did you write the book of “DUH”, and do you have faith in Torque above?
If the manual tells you so.
Do you believe that a head can blow? Can ignored advice save your car’s soul?
And should I explain this to you real slow?

Well, I know that you're in love with it 'cause I heard you brag and talking *****.
You ripped off the engines head, ensuring the engine stays dead.

He’s now a lonely teenage broncin' buck; with a pink carnation and a pickup truck.
But I knew he was out of luck on the day his Porsche Died

He started stared singin' bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
But now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.

Now for ten years I've been wrenching on my own
And your cars now as useful as a rollin' stone
But that's not how it used to be
When the newbie began to whine and scream
and ignored advice that could save his machine
from a voice that came from you and me

Oh, and while the wrench was looking down, the newbies stole his thorny crown.
The chatroom was adjourned. No verdict was returned
and while a newbie read “The Book of Parts” the wrenches practice in the park
and we sang dirges in the dark.
The day his Porsche Died.

We were singing bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
But now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die..

Helter-Skelter in a summer swelter the coolant blew off and he ran for shelter
180 PSI and falling fast.
Water pump landed on the grass; the newbie tried for an electric pump by-pass
With the wrenches on the sidelines in a cast.

Now the garage air was sweet perfume While the wrenches tried to get the engine in tune
We all got up to assist; but we usually wound up p*ssed!
'cause the wrenches tried to take the field; the clueless ones refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day his Porsche Died

We stared singing bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
But now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.

Oh, and there we were all in one place
A BBS Lost in Space
With no time left to post again
So come on, Juvat be nimble, Britwrench be quick
AE, fix this vibration in my stick
'cause I ignored you before, explain again.

Oh, and as I watched him whine on the page
SoCal’s hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in hell could break that “parts car” spell
and as the head blew high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Juvat laughing with delight
The day his Porsche Died

He was singing bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
But now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.

I met a wrench who sang the blues And I asked him for some happy news
But he just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store where I'd bought my parts years before
But the man there said the Porsches couldn’t play.

And in the streets the wrenches screamed; the owners cried, and the newbies dreamed
But not a word was spoken the valve train was all broken.
And three men I admire most: AE, SoCal and Britwrench the most,
They caught the last train for the coast, the day his Porsche Died.

And they were singing bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
But now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.

They were singing bye bye to the Porsche of Mine
I thought he hit the bottom when the timing belt died
but now the clutch is toast,
and the tranny is fried
Singin' this'll be the day that I die.

I am in total awe! Just this morning, on my drive to work the song played (well, not THIS song, but the 'other' one(, which is a favorite of mine.

Really, get a karoke machine, find a decent singer, and record it as noted. I will BUY a the mp3 or wav so my car will be 'dancing in tune'.

Great job, man.....talent, oh what talent!
