The Lyrics

And now for another instalment in my half-intentional long-running series of parodies about annoying things that happen on the road. I think the title makes this what this one's about a tad obvious.
Out on the roa-oad, I popped a ti-i-i-ire
Got spares in the boot, but see
It's such a big time wa-a-aste
It takes too friggin' lo-ong to change a ti-i-i-ire
And it's 40 degrees, that's in Celsius, by the wa-ay
The jack's so rusty, squeaks lou-oud
Hope it doesn't break no-ow
When I heard that poppin' sou-ound
Thought my iPod's just lou-oud

No, it's a flat ti-i-ire
I've got a flat ti-i-i-i-i-i-i-ire
First-ever flat ti-i-ire
I've got a flat ti-i-i-i-i-i-i-ire

Sweet balls, it's rea-eally hot toda-a-a-ay
Sun's bright, sweat's attractin' flies
Hard to swat them all awa-ay
Stench of rubber is takin' over my brai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ain
Wait, which way do I twirl
The nuts to make them tight, which way?
Twistin' them both ways arou-ound
Dropped the wrench three times no-ow
Think I've got it tight no-ow
Start the engine then po-o-o-ow

There goes one more ti-i-ire (ti-ire, ti-ire)
Again, a flat ti-i-i-i-i-i-i-ire
Must replace that ti-i-ire (ti-ire, ti-ire)
I've don't like flat ti-i-i-i-i-i-i-ires

Once more, crouched down, screwin' the nuts tight (oh)
And hoo boy, does that sentence not sound ri-ight (oh)
I don't know what makes ti-ires blow, right (oh)
Suppose it could be the car full of thugs (oh-oh-oh)
With automatic guns (oh-oh)
I've been escapin' fro-om, could be, bu-ut mo-ostly (oh-oh-oh-oh)

I've got a flat ti-i-ire (ti-ire, ti-ire)
Well, that should be ti-i-i-i-i-i-i-ires
They've shot all my ti-i-i-ires (ti-ires, ti-ires)
I'm all out of ti-i-i-i-i-i-i-ires

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Let's see if I-I can hit their ti-i-i-ires

40 degrees Celsius = 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Also the boot is what you Americans call the trunk from what I recall.

I never tire of a good tire tune!

At least the parody didn't fall flat.

Nice effort, but I think you got stretched a little thin toward the end. If it were multiple car issues instead of just a flat, it might have worked. Overall not bad though...I'll admit that your pacing was more spot on than my "Girl on Fire" spoof.

(Artistry) I think you stretched this topic as far as you could an did an admirable job doing it. The topic is very limiting, but I still found it very enjoyable and funny throughout, with perfect pacing (and I know this song is harder than most think). Very solid work, my friend. 555 spares for you!
