  • Hey Jack, what's happenin'?
    I don't know
    Well, uh, rumor around town says you might be thinkin' 'bout goin' down to the shore
    Uh, yeah, I think I'm gonna go down to the shore

    What ya gonna do down there?
    Uh, I don't know
    Play some video games, buy some Def Leppard T-shirts
    Don't forget your Motley Crüe T-shirt!
    You know all proceeds go to get their lead singer outta jail

    Can't wait to go down, hey, uh, were ya gonna check out the sand bar while you're down there?
    Uh, what's the Sand Bar?
    Ah, it's a place that lets sixteen year-old kids drink
    Ah, cool

    Yeah, hey, guess who's gonna be there?
    Uh, who?
    My favorite cover band, Crystal Ship
    Yeah, they do a Doors show, you'd be really impressed, in fact, it goes a little like this

    Love me two times, baby
    Love me twice today
    Love me two times, girl
    'Cause I got AIDS
    Love me two times, baby
    Once for tomorrow
    Once cause I got AIDS

    Uh, pretty good Jim Morrison impersonation there
    I hope those guys have a good sense of humor and don't take us into court
    Uh, what's the court?
    Never mind that, the important thing here (you mean the People's Court!)
    The- no, that's another story
    The important thing here is that we get to the part where you ask me how I'm gonna get down to the shore
    Oh, how you gettin' down to the shore?
    Funny you should ask, I've got a car now

    Ah wow, how'd ya get a car?
    Oh, my folks drove it up here from the Bahamas
    You're kidding
    I must be, the Bahamas are islands- okay, the important thing here is that, uh, you ask me what kinda car it is
    Uh, uh, what kinda car do ya' got?
    I've got a bitchin' Camaro

    Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro
    I ran over my neighbors
    Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro
    Now I'm in all the papers

    My folks bought me a bitchin' Camaro
    With no insurance to match
    So if I happen to run you down
    Please don't leave a scratch

    I ran over some old lady
    One night at the county fair
    And I didn't get arrested
    Because my dad's the mayor

    Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro
    Donuts on your lawn
    Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro
    Tony Orlando and Dawn

    When I drive past the kids
    They all spit and cuss
    'Cause I've got a bitchin' Camaro
    And they have to ride the bus

    So you'd better get out of my way
    When I come through your yard
    'Cause I've got a bitchin' Camaro
    And an Exxon credit card

    Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro
    Hey man where ya headed?
    Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro

  • John from GeorgiaI've noticed a couple of your "facts" suggest that Joe "Jack Talcum" Genaro vocalized both parts of the intro to this song. To the contrary, I believe that Rodney "Amadeus Anonymous" Linderman was the primary contributor to the song, both in its intro and its main body.
