A Few Words In Defense of Saab’s Brand (apologies to Randy Newman)
I’d like to say a few words
In defense of Saab’s Brand
Whose people aren’t bad nor are they mean
Now the leaders they had
While they’re the worst that we’ve had
Are hardly the worst this Auto industry has seen
Let’s turn history’s pages, shall we?
Take DeLorean for example
Engineer turned Jet-setter
Sold a Vega, last forever, and rusted away
Then build a car company that nearly put him away.
That’s like Cocaine trafficking, money laundering, or something
That’s not a very good example, is it?
But wait, here’s one, Cerberus Capital
Robert Nardelli put people at Chrysler in a terrible position
I don’t even like to think about it
Well, sometimes I like to think about it
Just one year ago, December something recall
Tollhattan closed, nothing at all
Assembly lines rusted
Dealer families busted
And customer calls ..well the phones went dark too
Just a few words in defense of Saab’s brand
Whose time in Sweden came to an end
Now we all know the stories
And respect for Victor at this point is pretty much out of the question
But in times like these
The unemployed sure could use a friend
The end of a car brand is messy at best
And Saab’s brand well its fading away
Just like all the rest
Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.
