Desperate Dan was a solitary man, a loner He had a girl but I guess he'd just outgrown her It's hard to dig but he made his big decision Became the man who ate his car - Collision !! They spread the news to every local station Come see the guy who swallows cars, - Sensation !!
CHORUS They said he couldn't digest it, but he just went ahead And undressed it Mechanic in a panic, oh what a state. He ate his meal full of steel from a plate. Munched his way into a million hearts as he ate the tyres And the spare parts. Some guys do anything to be seen, on the screen, What a dream, it's obscene. Now it's clear that his career took a wrong turn, The Golden Gate on a dinner date, Heartburn, heartburn, heartburn He's left the earth in a multi-berth Apollo Venus and Mars, the rest of the stars to swallow.
