Buddy Wassisname & The Other Fellers – The 12 Elan lyrics

Oh the 12 Elan goes bang, bang, bang
Oh the 12 Elan goes Bump!
Oh the 12 Elan goes tumpity, tumpity.
But most times she goes clunk!

Snowmobiles are made, in many sizes and colours too
Bombardier's Elan is best it's a twelve horsepower skidoo
Mine cost six hundred dollars, in 1982
It's easy to fix, parts are cheap and doesn't burn much fuel!

Oh the 12 Elan goes bang, bang, bang. Oh the 12 Elan goes Bump!
Oh the 12 Elan goes tumpity, tumpity. B'fang, b'fang, habber d' habber.
But most times she goes clunk!

Her hood is stitched with wire, and her windshield is tied on,
Her spark plug runs on the lighting coil, she's wired up all wrong!
I taped a flashlight on her hood because he headlight's gone
And the muffler bolts are all stripped out, and the track is stretched too long!

Oh the 12 Elan goes bang, bang, bang. Oh the 12 Elan goes Bump!
Oh the 12 Elan goes tumpity, tumpity. B'fang, b'fang, habber d' habber.
Toppity bim, toppity bim, topp topp topp. But most times she goes clunk!

She's welded, bolted, grinded, modified and changed
Scarce a thing that's on her is original or the same,
Her 12 horsepower motor's got new bearings seals and rings,
And her bogey wheel suspension got at least three brand new springs.

Oh the 12 Elan goes bang, bang, bang. Oh the 12 Elan goes Bump!
Oh the 12 Elan goes tumpity, tumpity. B'fang, b'fang, habber d' habber.
Toppity bim, toppity bim, topp topp topp. T't't'tump, t't't'tump
But most times she goes clunk!

I use her getting firewood, she'd haul some awful loads,
And when them big machines bog down she gives them all a tow
I can lift her, she don't need reverse, there's no place she can't go!
She's been shot mistaken for a moose because she was so slow,

Oh the 12 Elan goes bang, bang, bang. Oh the 12 Elan goes Bump!
Oh the 12 Elan goes tumpity, tumpity. B'fang, b'fang, habber d' habber.
Toppity bim, toppity bim, topp topp topp. T't't'tump, t't't'tump
Bzzzzzzz cough cough cough! But most times she goes clunk!

So I brought her down for a trade in, on a big new sleek skidoo
Aan even swap" I told them, Amy old one for your new",
They said ten thousand dollars, say's I Ab'ys have a clue! "
Ayou'll have to offer more than that for the 12 elan Skidoo"

Oh the 12 Elan goes bang, bang, bang. Oh the 12 Elan goes Bump!
Oh the 12 Elan goes tumpity, tumpity. B'fang, b'fang, habber d' habber.
Toppity bim, toppity bim, topp topp topp. T't't'tump, t't't'tump
Bzzzzzzz cough cough cough! Ging ga ging ga, ging, ging...
All: But most times she goes... Ninety mile and hour - ya right!
