The Lyrics

Part of my "Don't Stop The Pop" self-challenge. And now for I think the fourth or so parody this year about things on the road that piss me off. This time: people who just run across the road without bloody looking. "Temporary Australians" my dad calls 'em. Enjoy!
I think you're stupid
Look both ways before you cross
You just ran, you did
For drivers, don't give a toss
You don't watch for me
So I'm slammin' the brakes down,

I see you textin'
Pay attention, you twit
No care is taken
Should look left and right now
You should be more wary
Don't assume we'll be kind
To your hind

I don't want to crash tonight
Makes a mess and stuff
Don't just prance across the line
You might die because you weren't clever

Tip from me
Should look both ways when you
Cross the street
Never just blindly walk
I might freak
Forget the brakes and
Then I'll have a crash
You're caught in that crash

Run across
Don't just shuffle, please
And look up
Please don't look at your feet
My appeal
To you is think, so
You won't get a brand
New Getz in the back

Be careful, pally
When you're crossing the street
You're not important
We've the right of way, see
It's all up to you
So pay attention, please
Phone down, please

If you want to live tonight
Please look left, and then
Turn around and then look right
Sev'ral times, until the road is clear

Tip from me
Should look both ways when you
Cross the street
To blindly rush is wrong
Do not think
Periph'ral vision
Will save you, dumbass
Might still have a crash

Yes, I'll stop
If you, I can see
But I can't
If you're too close to me
Allow space
For you to make it
A good tactic, that
Should prevent a crash

So put down what you're doing
Pay attention, please
When you cross the street tonight
If this is too hard, then please
Stick to the crossings
When you cross the street tonight

Tip from me
Should look both ways when you
Cross the street
The right of way ain't yours
Phone off, please
That's really stupid
Attention is halved
Begging for a crash

You forgot
What you learned in school
That's just nuts
Now I know you're a fool
A big deal
If you don't follow
These simple road facts
Do you want a crash?

So if you could stop texting
To whoever, please
Safely cross the street tonight
But if you're ignoring me
Not my fault then, jeez
Try to cross the street tonight
(Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight)
Well, I just had to add "texting" and "dumbass" to the dictionary. Yeesh.

DKOS or Katy Perry - um, now I know. Nice fit with the 'public service announcement'. As the nice policeman said at school: 'Look left, then right, then left again (don't do that in US though - it will get you killed as sure as those phones).
