Buying a Car

car

Sorry I didn’t post a song yesterday!  Did anybody notice?  My husband and I spent the better part of the day going through the car buying process.  Even though we have great credit and owned our trade-in free and clear, it still took forever!  Why does this transaction take so long? 

Anyway, it made me think of how excited students get when they purchase their first car!  Buying a car is one topic that students love to discuss.  So here’s a song that you can use to introduce the topic in your consumer education or resource management class that will get their attention.

Have you ever heard this one? It was new to me.

I’m driving in my car
I’m in my car alone
I like to drive it fast
I like to drive it slow
Oh yeah

I never take a train
I never ride a bike
Cos driving in my car
Is what i really like
Oh yeah

Love my car
My car makes me happy
My car makes me smile
Yeah yeah yeah
Love my car
My car gives me pleasure
My car gives me style
Yeah yeah yeah
I love my car
De da de da da da da de da da da da

I never party hard
Or wear designer clothes
Cos driving in my car
Is where my money goes
Oh yeah

CHORUS

It’s got a telephone
It’s got a stereo
It’s got a dvd
It’s my home away from home

CHORUS
I don’t wanna turn this engine off
De da de da da da da de da da da da
I don’t wanna turn this engine off
De da de da da da da de da da da da

We love our new Toyota Tacoma pickup.  Maybe not as much as the guy who wrote this song, but whatever!
