Now What Would Dinah Sing?

From today's New York Times:

President Obama owes American taxpayers and voters a candid and detailed explanation of the government’s goals and the levers it intends to use to achieve them. He should make clear that the overarching objectives are to create a profitable company that makes cars that people want to buy, and that are more fuel-efficient. (“Owning G.M.”)
Which I think calls for a new version of an old theme:

"See, the USA Now Runs Chevrolet"
(To the melody of “See the USA in Your Chevrolet,” with verve, and plenty of MMWAH!!)

See, the USA now runs Chevrolet
Because GM was just too big to fail
Next year’s GMC runs on battery
Your dealer has the greenest cars for sale!

From Manhattan, or in a Harvard tower:

“Small cars seem neater, they make the air sweeter
So build’em cramped & light without much power!”

So in your Chevrolet made by USA

You’ll be coasting towards a new Green Day!

Not a bad effort at writing a pointed jingle...did you previously work for MAD magazine?

I never worked for MAD. But I was often inspired by MAD.
