My first car was a beat-up Ford
Manual choke and four on the floor
I set the points and I set the mix
There was nothing on it that I couldn't fix

Oil and water and alternator gauges
I ain't seen one of those for ages
Now all you get is some idiot light
And it takes a computer to put things right

I want a car with a carburetor
I want my coffee from a percolator
Write my letters with pen and paper
I want a car with a carburetor (x2)

Don't want supper from a microwave
Don't want to have an electric shave
Don't want to leave a message after the beep
Anything I got to say will keep

Don't want to pay my bills on-line
The U.S. mail suits me just fine
Don't want a fax or a cellular phone
It's hard enough just to be left alone

I want a car with a carburetor
I want my coffee from a percolator
See a movie in a movie theater
I want a car with a carburetor (x2)

I'm gonna take my hand-held laser
My Game-Boy® and digital pager
Burn 'em up in an incinerator
Put the ashes through the In-Sink-Erator®

I want a car with a carburetor
I want my coffee from a percolator
Make my copies with carbon paper
I want a car with a carburetor
I want a car with a carburetor
I want my music from a record player
You can call me an out-of-dater
But I want a car with a carburetor (x2)
