Corrigan Brothers' sing My Toyota – Click above to watch video after the jump

Doug Fieger, lead singer of The Knack, died earlier this year. He and My Sharona live on, though, and not just on '80s radio stations. Witness this rather timely and well-done parody, My Toyota by the Corrigan Brothers and Pete Creighton. If you think this whole Toyota recall/unintended acceleration thing will sound better in song, follow the jump to watch the video. We've even included the lyrics for you, since this is sure to be a karaoke classic.

Lyrics

MY TOYOTA
Corrigan Brothers (Gerard Brian and Donncha Corrigan and Peter Creighton)

Oh my little pretty car
My pretty car
Super little green machine
Glad I own ya

But you started actin strange
Actin strange
When I use my breaks
I can't hold ya

Never Gonna Stop
Wish you'd stop
Wish you'd really stop
When you gonna stop for me

My my my Toyota

Red lights really scare me now
Scare me now
Never sure if I will stop
My motor

I just hope for green
Hope for green
So far I've been lucky
Way to go yah

Never Gonna Stop
Wish you'd stop
Wish you'd really stop
When you conna stop for me

My my my Toyota

Oh my little pretty car
My pretty car
Super little green machine
Glad I own ya

But you started actin strange
Actin strange
When I use my breaks
I can't hold ya

Never Gonna Stop
Wish you'd stop
Wish you'd really stop
When you gonna stop for me
My my my Toyota

      Great parody!!! Thanks for posting this, autoblog!

      "I suspect this is more your interest"

      Actually, no. But I will grant you, it is more interesting that the constant regurgitated Toyota "jokes".
      • 4 Years Ago
      That was funny, and I guess the "Toyota Jokes" are going to keep on coming, even if some of you here don't like it.

        If it helps to prevent further death and disability, consider it an honorable service to the public.

        I won't be surprised if some Hollywood directors/producers might do a gag a la flaming Pinto from the movie "Top Secret" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT0J0rcJTLo featuring a Camry/Corolla/Prius/Tundra/Tacoma ;-)
      • 4 Years Ago
      Please, it's "brakes", not "breaks"!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Well, if you're a Prius owner, both are correct. ;)


        (Hey, as long as we're bashing Toyota with questionable humor...)
      • 4 Years Ago
      Autoblog - do you have anything actually interesting to write about? This kind of rubbish wouldn't even be fit for Weekly World News.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Don't like the news, don't read, watch or click on it. Grow some testicular fortitude and man up, already.

        Oh - so this is "news"? For the mindless, perhaps. Not for anyone else.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think Autoblog has officially jumped the shark, I came here for my daily automotive news about the actual CARS, not the daily bashing about Toyota or stupid topics and videos which are only vaguely related to automobiles at best...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Good cover but the lyrics? Lame.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This joke has officially "jumped the shark."

      That being said, I think Toonces drove a Toyota.

        • 4 Years Ago
        Toonces drove a Buick Century last time I saw..... it.
