lyrics Talkin' Song Repair Blues

The mechanic raised up from under my hood
And he shook his head and said this ain't good
Your timin' belt's done shrunk one size too small
And those spark plug wires are a little too long
And your main prodsponder's nearly gone
Your injector ports are stripped and that ain't all
The torque converter's runnin' low on torque
And that water pump's nearly down a quart
But we caught it all in time so you're in luck
He said I've got the time and I've got the parts
Just give me the word and I'm ready to start
I think we can bring her in for eight hundred bucks
But don't be downhearted
I can fix it for you Sonny
It won't take too long it'll just take money
Then he said aren't you that songwriter guy?
I said yes I am he said so am I
He sat down and played me a song by the grease rack
When he finished singin' he gave me a smile
And I closed my eyes and pondered awhile
He said what do you think? now don't hold nothin' back
Well I gave him my most sorrowful look
And I said this song's got a broken hook
I can order a new one from
Nashville but it won't be cheap
And I know you've been using a cut-rate thesaurus
'Cos your adverbs have backed up into your chorus
Now your verse is runnin' on verbs that are way too weak
But don't be downhearted
I can fix it for you Sonny
It won't take too long it'll just take money
And I said hold on friend
I'm not through
I hate to be the one to give you this news
But your whole melodic structure's worked itself loose
It's got so many dotted eighth notes in it
I'd keep her under fifty beats per minute
I mean that's just me talkin' it's really up to you
You've got a bad safety problem with
That dominant chord with the augmented fifth
Just see how dangerously high it raises you up
So just go on over and work on my car
And I'll sit here by the fan and chances are
I can straighten this thing out for eight nine hundred bucks
But don't be downhearted
I can fix it for you Sonny it won't take too long
You guessed it well it may be a hit
I like it
