Analysis of Buying A Car

Forget the spiel
Don't get me lost
Ignore the zeal
Give me the cost

Simply be real
Don't get me lost
Find me a deal
Give me the cost

Chisel the heel
Don't get me lost
Cut me a steal
Give me the cost

Stay even keel
Don't get me lost
Sliver the peel
Give me the cost

Avoid the feel
Don't get me lost
Fix me a seal
Give me the cost
