Much as I dislike Chevrolets, I must
Admit that I admire the Corvette,

I still remember the first of the line --
Blue Flame -- no V-8's yet,

Who would have thought that General Motors
Would build a true sports car?

More than that, a Fiberglas shell
Would hitch GM lovers to a star,

Over the years not one Corvette body
Has fallen victim to rust,

In this day of sheep-cars in wolves' clothing
There are still some things you can trust,

A few of us can still remember
Some "once upon a time" kid

Who had parents who gave him a new Corvette
Like one rich farmer's son that we knew did.
