The best cars
During the year, I and my friend were saving up to buy a car,
Finally, we went to the "AutoVAZ" car factory,
We dashingly bought the car, we started our way home,
I was excited. Maybe, my friend also was glad.
Shit, suddenly our car stopped on the way. Oh, why did it stop? 1
We'll have to look for somebody to take our car in tow,
The cylinders burst, the brake drum broke down,
The carburetor exhausted, and the driveshaft fell off!
Having opened the hood,
We opened our mouths and closed our eyes,
Because all hoses fell off, shit!
The car body and manifolds burst and rotted from the corrosion!
Are the best cars!
Lada 2102, Lada 2108, Lada 2103, and Lada 2109
Are the best cars!
Saabs, Nissans, Mercedeses, Fords, Opels,
Terranos were passing by us. Kicking up dust, a Jeep raced here.
The prestigious Jeep whistled so fast, we didn't even have time to see it.
A Cadillac, an Aston-Martin, a Fukang, a Citroën,
Škoda, Honda, Renault, Daewoo, Volkswagen,
Mitsubishi, Mazda, Rover SUV,
Later a Toyota, a Daewoo SUV, and a Land Rover drove here.
They all went by us and didn't stop!
Shit, they all didn't care about us,
We were dirty, me and you, we were screwing bolts,
Me and you beat off all our fingers!
Working under the hood, we froze,
My friend, idiot, tired from repairing the engine,
He screams and grunts, the tools lie on the asphalt.
Now the night has come, an owl cries us:
"My kids, why did you buy this car?
This car is the most rotten among all cars in the World!
It would be better if you bought an old second-hand foreign car!"
Why and for what reason did we buy this bullshit?!
We are staying here, we are crying here, and there's a definite reason,
We got scammed like fools making this expensive purchase,
We will sit in the car and joyfully sing:
"People, buy home-made cars!"
