That's life in the big city
You beg for mercy but you get no pity
Low-life zero mentality
Vandalized victims of depravity

Fast food, take-out mentality
Where the dogs eat the dogs and the innocent bleed
The city can't cope and the cops don't care
There's fear in the streets and it's a jungle out there

I don't want it, don't want it
Don't want it, don't want it

Somebody stole my car
Somebody stole my automobile
They ripped off the radio and sold the wheels
And if it's happened to you then you know how I feel
Somebody stole my car

Somebody stole my car
I left it parked outside my home
It had a new A/C and a cellular phone
And I'm as sick as a dog 'cause I'm still paying off the loan
Somebody stole my car

That's life in the metropolis
Living on credit and overdrawn interest
Craving commercialized commodities
Everything advertised, stirring up greed

Everyday I wonder why, everyday I can't get away
The city's in debt, up past its ears
Yet we still borrow more and pay it back next year
Now I'm paying for a car that I no longer own
And the next time anybody offers me a loan, I'll say

I don't want it, don't want it
Don't want it, don't want it

Somebody stole my car
It's just been cleaned and I've just had it taxed
It had brand-new stereo speakers in the back
And I call up the cops with a panic attack
Somebody stole my car

Somebody stole my car
I bet they're riding around and running red lights
Got chicks in the back and ballin' all night
While I sit at home getting more uptight
Somebody stole my car

Somebody stole my car
Somebody stole my automobile
They ripped off the radio and sold the wheels
And if it's happened to you then you know how it feels
Somebody stole my car

Don't want it, don't want it
Don't want it, don't want it, don't

Somebody stole my car
Somebody stole my car
Somebody stole my car

That's life in the metropolis
Possessions mean nothing in a world like this
Some punks wanna ride and they see my car
So they take it, shake it, burn it up and break it, hey, that's my car

Somebody stole my car
Somebody stole my car
Somebody stole my car

Beep beep, beep beep, yeah
