"Hey People, You Gotta Drive Hybrids Already" is a song sung by Stan Marsh in the Season Ten episode, "Smug Alert!". The song is a protest about convincing people to buy and drive hybrid cars and the lyrics consist of mostly "come on people now" repeated. Stan accompanies the song on an acoustic guitar throughout.

It's a parody of the song "Get Together", also known as "Let's Get Together", written in the early 1960s by American singer-songwriter Chet Powers and re-released under the pseudonym name Dino Valenti in 1967.[1]


Gerald Broflovski's conviction for a hybrid vehicle called the Toyonda Pious drives them to seek out like minded people in San Francisco. When Stan Marsh's friend, Kyle Broflovski moves, he writes a song that will persuade the other people in town to switch to hybrid cars, hoping the family will come back.

Following the release of the song, most of the residents of South Park were inspired to take up the cause of environmentalism and began buying hybrids. Unfortunately, this had the unintended consequence of creating large amounts of incredibly harmful "smug".

The radio broadcaster introduced this song with the following: "Alright, all you dreamers and creamers out there in South Park. I'mmona play a song by a local artist that really made me think about my impact on the earth. This is Stan Marsh with 'Hey, People, You Gotta Drive Hybrids Already.'"


Come on, people now, people now
People now, come on, people now
Got to drive hybrid, people now
People now, people now, people now
Hybrids are for people now, people now
Good for people driving people now
Get a hybrid, be good people now.

We have all got to be people now
People driving hybrid people now
People now, people now, hybrid now
Hybrid people driving people now
Come on people, let's be people now
Hybrid people driving people now
Come on, everybody, be people now.
