"I Love My Saturn"

by Hugh O'Dougherty

first performed at Homecoming

 

 

When I was done and began to leave

They all stood up and cheered

Applauded solidly, chanted my name

Like an idol revered

 

They were not my constituents

Nor my loyal listenership                                                                                                          

No merely the employees of

The Saturn dealership

 

I love my Saturn,

Its fun and trouble free

All I do is change the oil

And add some gasoline

Itís a different kind of car

From a different company

And itís made in that friendly plant

Down in Tennessee

 

Well before I made it home

They sent flowers to the house

Then Christmas cards to me

And valentineís to the spouse

Then friendly helpful hints

On preserving tires and rotors

Never once admittiní

Theyíre part of general motors.

 

I love my Saturn

Itís fun and trouble free

All I do is change the oil

And add some gasoline

Itís a different kind of car

From a different company

And itís made in that friendly plant

Down in Tennessee

 

But suspicion spoils my joy

Hearing other Saturneers

For Americans never love cars

Made in their hemisphere

 

So there must be something wrong

Are we possessed?

Are we a cult?

Did they drug us with the free coffee

Are we now programmed as a result?

 

Did aliens snatch our souls?

Solder chips into our heads?

They could have put us into pods

They chose compact cars instead

 

Only you who do not drive one

Can figure out this thing

Look deeply in our eyes

Listen closely as we sing

 

I love my Saturn

Its fun and trouble free

All I do is change the oil

And add some gasoline

Itís a different kind of car

From a different company

And itís made on that friendly planet

With the three big rings

 

Every body nowÖ

 

I love my Saturn

Itís fun and trouble free

All I do is change the oil

And add some gasoline

Itís a different kind of car

From a different company

And itís made in that friendly plant

Down in Tennessee

 

You see itís made on that friendly planet

Or down in Tennessee!
