The Lyrics

This song was inspired by an incident involving my teenage nephew, who got his first ticket for parking in an empty parking lot while out looking for a place to eat one evening with his friends.
Rumbles in our abdomens
And wondering why the restaurant lights are dark
Hoping there's a place to eat that's open
And a perfect place to park, park

Never should have gone to Birmingham
Have they lost their minds?
Somewhere there lurks a cop
Inside a doughnut shop
Out to deal a pointless reprimand
Have they lost their minds?
Somehow it's got to stop

In this town of affluence
It matters not the parking lot is empty
The letter of the law remains half-spoken
The rules must not be broken, broken

Never should have gone to Birmingham
Have they lost their minds?
Somewhere there lurks a cop
Inside a doughnut shop
Out to deal a pointless reprimand
Have they lost their minds?
Somehow it's got to stop

We want more than this town's got to offer
We want places to park without bother
Without paying a fine to fill their coffers
And everything inside screams for common sense, yeah

Never should have gone to Birmingham
Have they lost their minds?
Never should have gone to Birmingham
Have they lost their minds?
Never should have gone to Birmingham
Have they lost their minds?
We were meant to park
We were meant to park
