Can you name the car with four-wheel-drive?
Smells like a steak and seats thirty-five!
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down.
It’s a country-fried truck endorsed by a clown.
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Twelve yards long and two lanes wide,
Sixty-five tons of American pride!
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Top of the line in utility sports!
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts.
Canyonero! Canyonero!
She blinds everybody with her super-high beam.
She a squirrel-squishin’, deer-smackin’ drivin’ machine!
Canyonero! Canyonero!

  1. From Spain: great song and fun lyric. Canyonero is originally a spanish name, because canyon-“ero” is a spanish suffixed; Itร‚ยดs a example of the ancient spanish culture in the middle-west of the USA, and some spanish customs survive today in many parts of the USA west.

  2. Hi! Today I see the episode of Canyonero (reposition). Hahahaha! It’s fun! And the music it’s cool! Whoa! Canyonero Whoa! ๐Ÿ˜€

    From Barcelona, with love ๐Ÿ™‚
