Somebody Stole My Car

Ray Davies, released on Phobia, © Davray Music Ltd. 1993

.

That's life in the big city

You beg for mercy but you got no pity

Low-life zero mentality

Vandalized victims of depravity

Fast food, take-out mentality

Where the dogs eat the dogs

And the innocent bleed

The city can't cope and the cops don't care

There's fear in the streets

It's a jungle out there

I don't want it, don't want it

Don't want it, don't want it

.

[Chorus:]

Somebody stole my car

Somebody stole my automobile

They ripped off the radio and sold the wheels

And if it's happened to you

Then you know how I feel

Somebody stole my car

.

Somebody stole my car

I left it parked outside of my home

It had a new A/C and a cellular phone

And I'm as sick as a dog

'Cos I'm still paying off the loan

Somebody stole my car

.

That's life in the metropolis

Living on credit and overdrawn interest

Craving commercialized commodities

Everything advertised, stirring up greed

Everyday I wonder why

Everyday I can't get away

The city's in debt, up past its ears

Yet we still borrow more

And pay it back next year

Now I'm paying for a car that I no longer own

And the next time anybody offers me a loan

I'll say I don't want it, don't want it

Don't want it, don't want it

.

Somebody stole my car

It's just been cleaned and I've just had it taxed

It had brand-new stereo speakers in the back

And I call up the cops

With a panic attack

Somebody stole my car

.

Somebody stole my car

I bet they're riding around and running red lights

Got chicks in the back and ballin' all night

While I sit at home

Getting more uptight

Somebody stole my car

.

[Chorus]

.

Don't want it, don't want it

Don't want it, don't want it

Somebody stole my car

Somebody stole my car

Somebody stole my car

.

That life in the metropolis

Possessions mean nothing in a world like this

Some punks wanna ride and they see my car

So they take it, shake it

Burn it up and break it

Hey, that's my car

Somebody stole my car
