The Lyrics

After a string of "vacations" in places where you never meant to be in the first place...a girl kind of loses her cool...
All along
I thought that this road looked odd
My feeling's strong
Your map in-ter-pret-ing skills are flawed
You don't know the way
In circles we've been dri-i-i-ving
And Heaven only knows
When you will find it

Heaven only knows
Where we might be headed
This vacation blows
There, I went and said it
You're really on my last nerve
For getting us lost a-gain, Honey!

You refuse
Ask-ing for help? You'd rather die
A kangaroo
Just laughed at us as he passed us by
This "Down Under Tour"
Certified fi-AS-co
Been driving for days
Where? I don't know!

Heaven only knows
If we'll ever make it
"Sydney: 5 Ki-los"
But you didn't take it
Are we on a wildlife reserve?
That Croc is looking at me funny!

Heaven only knows
What's beyond this in-cline
"Where'd This Couple Go?"
That will be the headline
They'll sum it up in just a blurb
"They Drove Themselves To Death!" Oh!
We'll drive ourselves to hey-ey-ey-ey

"I'll take you to each corner of the planet
Babe, I know you're gonna love it!"
I go with you but bring extra money
Because we're bound to need i-it
With one wrong turn our Honeymoon in Vegas
Took us barreling through Cleveland
And so much for this Sydney vacation
We're lost in Northern Queens-land

Heaven only knows
When I've been more crabby
Since the trip, I s'pose
To Westminster Abbey
I didn't speak a single word
To you for 'bout a good month, Honey!

Heaven only knows
Woah oh oh oh
I've reached a new low
M'patience inventory
And I don't want you to flip
But if we live to see it
I'm driving on our next trip

Very funny... even though it shoves an ice pick in the core of my being (family map reader)... and Vegas to Cleveland... quite the side, um, er.... trip!

I absolutely loved it! I also loved how you varied the chorus with different localities each time. This parody rocks! 5-5-5 =)

I keep telling you to leave that ass behind and come on a road trip with me, but nooooo.

I laughed a little too hard at "barreling through Cleveland," but laughed just the right amount at the rest of this teriffic parody!

You know why men never ask for directions? Because another man will tell him where to go. You, my Lady, can go directly to five, pass go, and... well, you'll have to get your two hundred dollars. We must, after all, maintain our amateur status.

Hang on...you came all that way and didn't drop in for a cuppa tea? Shame!!! This was wonderfully silly, Miss Elf. 555

Very nicely put together, Arwen. I happen to like this original song as well; in fact, I have the album. 5-5-5 :)

Quoting a comment from another parody: "Arwen's lazy ass needs to get over here to thank her admirers. I'll get the picture."

I didn't mean that as an attack, btw. Please don't get the wrong idea.

Hee hee! I love it when someone is so excited to hear a thank you from me that they pretend to be "some random person" and tell me to get my act together...it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy...=)

Matthias...well, I HAD hoped to see Kristof at some point during the Westminster Abbey trip...but of course...we got lost...=(

TJC...well, if you're a GOOD map reader, then you don't have any reason to be offended...=) Thanks!

Serafina...hey, I really appreciate it. I try to vary my choruses, for the most part...I'm always happy when it works out!

alvin...thanks a bunch!

Mr 1s...phew! Glad to see you break from your norm...thanks!

Ashkicksass...I don't know why, but the term "barreling" kills me. Glad you liked it, too! =)

Michael...=) Thanks a million! Or...at least a two hundred...; )

Kristof...as I mentioned before...I was a little lost. Or rather, I was yelling at someone who was lost. =( Thanks!

Agrimorfee...=) Thank you very much!

nally...I'm glad you caught it...I thought of you when I chose Shakira, because I know you're a fan...=)

some random person...oh, I kind of thanked you before...for um...being so excited to hear from me...and also, whenever I thanked you in the list of people that I thanked...=)

Ah, you must be driving with a man taking the "scenic route". At least that's what my dad called it =)

(Dec) Yet another example of why our Queen Arwen is AT THE TOP of the Decathlon Leaderboard!

My dear old dad once said to my mum, "You can't possibly get lost, woman....the kitchen's that way and the bedroom's down the hall." We never did find that testicle...;-) Still wonderfully fun.

(Decathlon - Event 5) I'm with Johnny D all the way...though not all the way to Cleveland as you went. Oh, well. Well done, Arwen!
Arwen - October 22, 2006 - Report this comment
Tomario...=) I've mentioned before that the Cleveland bit is a favorite of mine...glad you liked it, too.

Just me...(or Just you?)...ummm...I'm pretty sure you're being nice up there...so, thanks...but the part about feeling lost? I'd like to second that...; ) Hope you find your way...

Jeff...yeah, well sometimes a girl has seen all the "scenery" she can handle...; ) Thanks!

Johnny...awww...thanks very much. I really appreciate that!

Kristof...hee! Thanks again, Mr. Robertson

Bobpiecheese...if you had to agree with anyone on this one, I think Johnny's an excellent choice! Thanks very much!

(dec 4) crabby and Abbey was a nice rhyme - the trouble with touring Australia Arwen is that the country's the same size as the US, but everyone lives just near or on the beach - so it is possible to "drive yourself to death" - way to go to win the Aussie vote! - lol - 555

And of course, some stupid moron had to throw in a triple one vote. If I were an admin, I'd yank out his unfair vote. It's not nice to sabotage the ballot box. >:(
A. Person - October 16, 2008 - Report this comment
yeah, I'd like to nail that little Piss Ant too. I won't worry about it though, as I gave this fives. So my 555 vote will hopefully help to counterbalance the bad votes.
