      Alan Jackson - The Talkin' Song Repair Blues Música y Letra

      The mechanic raised up from under my hood 
      He shook his head and said, "This ain't good 
      Your timin' belt's done shrunk one size too small 
      Those spark plug wires are a little too long 
      And your main prodsponder's nearly gone 
      Your injector ports are stripped and that ain't all" 
      "The torque converter's runnin' low on torque 
      And that water pump's nearly down a quart 
      But we caught it all in time so you're in luck" 
      He said, "I've got the time and I've got the parts 
      Just give me the word and I'm ready to start 
      I think we can bring her in for eight hundred bucks"
      
      But don't be downhearted, I can fix it for you, sonny 
      It won't take too long, it'll just take money 
      Then he said, "Ain't you that songwriter guy?" 
      I said, "Yes, I am," he said, "So am I" 
      And he sat down and played me a song by the grease rack 
      When he finished singin' he gave me a smile 
      And I closed my eyes and pondered awhile 
      And he said, "What do you think? 
      Now don't hold nothin' back"
      
      Well, I gave him my most sorrowful look 
      And I said, "This song's got a broken hook 
      I can order you a new one from Nashville but it won't be cheap 
      And I know you've been using a cut-rate thesaurus 
      'Cause your adverbs have backed up into your chorus 
      Now your verse is runnin' on verbs that are way too weak"
      
      But don't be downhearted, I can fix it for you, sonny 
      It won't take too long, it'll just take money 
      And I said, "Hold on friend now I'm not through 
      I hate to be the one to give you the news 
      But your whole melodic structure's worked itself loose 
      It's got so many dotted eighth notes in it 
      I'd keep her under fifty beats per minute 
      I mean, that's just me talkin', it's really up to you"
      
      And you've got a bad safety problem with 
      That dominant chord with the augmented fifth 
      Just see how dangerously high it raises you up 
      So just go on over there and work on my car 
      I'll sit here by the fan and chances are 
      I can straighten this thing out for eig...nine hundred bucks"
      
      But don't be downhearted, I can fix it for you, sonny 
      It won't take too long 
      You guessed it 
      It may be a hit 
      I like it
