The Lyrics

a song about road traffic control and our local councils methods of doing this........creating more accidents and traffic jams than before
now that i'm back in my car again
speed bumps and roundabouts block my way, hey hey
those zebra crossing impede my way
i wait here for the lights to change, hey hey
since the council said what they're gonna do
they're doing what drivers don't want them to, hey hey, hey hey

tell me, why are roundabouts no fun?
did you make the traffic lights all change to send the traffic crazy?
and those speed bumps are overrated?
tell me, does the town planner own a car?
spend the daytime drunk in the bar?
And did speed cameras get you when going at forty down there?

Now that the sign here says "New Road Layout"
Every road map is just so much way out, hey hey
Just check the set-out of the latest road
If there's a plan here we don't know, hey hey
Now that the traffic lights are unclear
I think there'll be more collisions here,
as there's no way, a driver can comprehend
what these street signs really say, it's a turn or a bend

tell me, do pedestrians walk this street
and do cyclists get the chance to almost have the right of way
and go through the red lights' again
and tell me, which exit did you find?
Was it the right one you wanted this time
And did speed cameras get you when going at forty down there?

Can you imagine no silly, low speed limit
Policemen always ganging up on you, even if there's nothing wrong
Can you imagine no too-keen traffic wardens, five hour queue in congestion
I'll get the train here and never arrive, quickly

tell me, do pedestrians walk this street
and do cyclists get the chance to almost have the right of way
and go through the red lights' again
tell me, why are roundabouts no fun?
did you make the traffic lights all change to send the traffic crazy?
and those speed bumps are overrated?
tell me, does the town planner own a car?
spend the daytime drunk in the bar?
And did speed cameras get you when going at forty down there?
Na na na na na, na na na na na na
