The Lyrics

There are so many different shorter versions of this Animals song, but this pacing only works with Santa Esmeralda's "Kill Bill" soundtrack version (which is why the decade listed was 2000s)
Cabbie!
Do you understand me now?
Sometimes I speak a little fast
but don't you know, noone alive, would choose to take this route now
can't see a window with
unbroken glass

coz I'm just a non-interventionist dude
oh Lord, please don't drive me through this neighbour-hude

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
that I have a wife and kids asleep - in - bed
I foresee problems
if we have to stop
Can't we find a freeway lane instead....
coz I'm shit-scared

Cabbie!
Don't you know, I'm only hu-man
and I've got fears like - any other one
and sometimes I find myself - full on regretting!
shoulda caught that bus, down
Highway 1

coz I'm just a non-interventionist dude
I wish - you weren't driving through this neighbour-hude

(oh Lord, please don't take me through this neighbour-hu-hude
....please please God - I will promise always to be gu-hude)

(foreboding instrumental)

Cabbie!
Do you understand me now?
It kinda makes me feel - a little mad
But didn't you know, stopping for that hitch-hiker, back there
was gonna lead to losing
all we had

see, I'm just a non-interventionist dude
that's why! I said don't drive through that neighbour-hude

and Cabbie!
when he said - "Give me your money"
and he pointed that gun - at your head
Why did you tell him that maybe he ought to
check out that rich dude in the
back in-stead?

coz I'm just a non-interventionist dude
who begged - "please don't drive me through this neighbour-hude"

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
that I've got an urge to take it out - on - you
Life has its problems
they're there to avoid
That's one thing I didn't see you do...
'tho I told you!

Cabbie!
Don't you know, I'm only hu-man
and I respect others like - any other one
So that's why I find myself profoundly astonished
at those dumb-ass actions
that you done

coz I'm just a non-interventionist dude
oh man, why'd you drive me through that neighbour-hude

as mentioned above, the pacing only works to the "Kill Bill" version

DKTOS, darling, but you're welcome in my hood any time...
Arwen - December 14, 2004 - Report this comment
I don't know the song either...but I agree with Ash...you're welcome in her hood any time...
Stuart McArthur - December 14, 2004 - Report this comment
thanks, alvin - yes, I did find it difficult, and yes, a big Tarantino fan here too

thanks, Ash and Arwen, so that's two invites to Ash's hood, none to Arwen's...that makes me :-(

Let me intervene with some 5s.

You've made it abundantly clear that you wouldn't find a visit to Wyoming appealing anyway, Stuart...(yes, I AM pouting, thank you very much!)
Ashkicksass - December 14, 2004 - Report this comment
And I'm totally offended that you're not thrilled sensless to be invited to mine!

BASTARD.

We are officially in a fight now. And good luck getting back on my good side.

You see? Now you've lost the best two Americans you've ever known!
Ashkicksass - December 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Well I know he lost me, but when did he lose Jeff?
Arwen - December 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Actually...Americans Shamericans...we're the two hottest commodities in the WORLD, Mister!

well, firstly, I would love to visit Wyoming. If NASA could arrange it for me, I'd be there in a shot

secondly, (and, newbies, please note the deft use of the divide-and-conquer strategy here) I direct you, Arwen, to read ASh's last comment closely

thirdly, Ash, the sheer frustration of having to sit on the sidelines and watch as your pending nuptials render you completely out-of-my-reach indeed does NOT thrill me - you're totally correct

fourthly, Arwen, the fact that Ash negatively interpreted (wrongly, of course) my comment from her point of view, indicates she positively interpreted it from your point of view, which means you are, by definition, flattered! - and therefore owe me an apology (of my choosing)
* under my breath * women!

and John - thankyou - sorry for the wait - you know what it's like, mate ;-)

Number 1: Ash...there's an MS paint drawing on my hard drive with your name on it...

Number 2: Stu...Nasa bit = not funny. Demanding an apology from ME = Even less funny. You must be building it all up for the greatest make up of all time...or else you have a death wish...=(

I assumed that Ash was inviting you UNDER her hood, in hopes that you could fix her car once and for all.
Jeff Reuben - December 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Ash, I thought your last comment was quite clever. Arwen, I apologize for thinking Ash's last comment was quite clever
Ashkicksass - December 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Stu, Nice try. Bite me.

Arwen, come on!. You know that was funny!

Jeff, LOL on your first comment! And as for your second, thank you for being the only voice of reason in this mixed up AmIRight world...
Stuart McArthur - December 15, 2004 - Report this comment
jeff, you smooth bastard....Arwen, ithe NASA comment WAS funny, and I should know because I just re-read it and laughed again....Ash, we don't use that expression over here, so I'm guessing it's a phrase used during foreplay
Arwen - December 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Jeff...I forgive you...because it WAS funny...but rest assured that I've still got an MS Paint birdie waiting for Ash if the MBs ever come back up.

Stuart...it WASN'T funny. If you laughed at it again, then you're equally unfunny. Take a hint from Mr. Pacholek...say NICE things about Wyoming. It would pay off...(it certainly couldn't hurt) You know...Kristof once wrote a parody about Wyoming just to win me over...

look, I googled again and got a pic of Cheyenne kicking up its heels during a Cheyenne "Frontier Day" - I must admit both of them looked like they were having a blast...
