The Lyrics

Me and all my buds
Were cruisin' through the hood
The taco stands were jumpin' and
Chick Filet was tastin' good

Uh-huh, but suddenly I see a sign
On the corner and I read it
With a squeal, dude, I slam on the brakes
I guess I'd better heed it

And now we're waiting
Waiting for the sign to change
Yes, we are waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change

Don't wanna get arrested
So this time must be invested
While we are waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change

We've been here for an hour
This is becoming quite a chore
And we're all gonna miss a "Simpsons"
That we haven't seen before

You know I stopped just like it told me
Like a model citizen
So how much longer must we sit here, oh
Till the sign says "GO" again

We're tired of waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change
It's kinda grating, grating
Waiting for the sign to change

I'm feelin' like a boob
And we just smoked our final doob
But we keep on waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change

Now we're debating
Skating if it doesn't change
Cuz we're still waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change

We stopped just it told us
But now we feel like it's Rick-Rolled us
And we're still waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change

Lord, we keep on waiting, waiting
Waiting for the sign to change

Waiting for the sign to change
Waiting for the sign to change
Waiting for the sign to change

I know your pain. I think everyone who has ever drove or been a passenger in a car (which is pretty much everyone on Earth) knows your pain. Universally funny and a song that I've been wanting to parody for the longest time.

Funny. Just don't wait at a stop sign forever, because that won't change. Lights will eventually, and I assume that's what you meant. 5's

Unlike some ignorant people who apparently don't like anything, I liked this one

Good idea and follow-up...We've probably all done this, one time or another...sit at a stop sign too long, daydreaming, till someone behind horns us.
