lyrics

I would gladly crush the head of the man
Who used a crowbar to pry my car door open
And I would detach his face like I did with my car stereo
Which he went ahead and took anyway

Get away from my car!

I don't indulge myself too much except
When I'm in a record store, it's my addiction
And I don't even care about the dents in my exterior
But why'd he have to pinch my gabba gabba hey?

Get away from my car!

He took my Foo Fighters ... I can live with that
He took my Radiohead ... I can live with that
He took my Sublime ... that was Devin's, so he can live with that
But he... he took my Budokahn ... I cannot ... not live without that!

He took my Tommy can you hear me
Now he's gonna, gonna learn to fear me
He took my Ben Folds Five
If I had seen it, he wouldn't be alive
He took my Weezer Pinkerton
Of all the new stuff, that was my favorite one
He took my Village Green....

But what he'll get is vengeance like he has never dreamed
I will dust for pawprints, reconstruct the crime of the scene
And if he doesn't turn up, I'll teach myself Einstein
But I will do him one better ... I will build a time machine
And travel back with a sickle to wipe his grimace clean
And I will use his innards to spell out something obscene
But if I don't have the guts, at the very least I'll scream

Get away from my car!
