The Lyrics

I sing this with an accent somewhere in between Speedy Gonzales and Peter Lorre.
The Road Rage Song (Desafinauto)

Looking in my rear-view mirror I see
An obnoxious driver close behind me
I just can't believe they gave a license to that guy
Down at DMV they must be getting high

He just cut me off, boy, what an a**hole
How I'd love to see him spin out of control
Flipping over skidding and destroy a tree

That fancy Escalade would be a total mangled wreck
And they'd have to get the Jaws of Life to cut him out
"Help me, both my legs are crushed!" he'd scream and then he'd shout

He would call his girlfriend on his mobile phone
Saying, "Honey, I'll be late in getting home...."

He would learn his lesson, that's for damn sure
And he'd drive more like a human being, not so immature

Then I might see him in the carpool lane with all his friends
He'd never be late for work again
And he'd be laughing at us suckers stuck in traffic
But if he tries to pass me on the right, he'll get his a** kicked

(Kazoo solo)

When we buy a car it's for our ego
Saying look at me wherever we go
Why else would those little guys buy monster SUV's
Picture Pee Wee Herman in a pink Humm-Vee

Why don't you calm down and take a chill pill
On the freeway's no place to show ill will
So stop giving the finger as you pass me by

I'll smile and wave back at you, I'm a peaceful kind of guy
Muttering under my breath, you choke on d**k and die
Then write down your license plate, report you to the cops

Take a picture of you with my Rolleiflex
And I'll send it to the f#@%ing FBI

So just cool your jets and watch your speed, my friend
Or you'll meet a gruesome and untimely end, on that depend

We paid our taxes and we made this road for all to share
So I'll see you when you get to there
And maybe we could have a beer or two together
And then discuss some politics and shoot each other
ęBob Gomez 2003

My wife and I love it, share the sentiment (Or is it sediment?) Though I personally don't like being censored, so I try not to use those verbotten naughties. You share a lot of my influences,(or is that influenzas?) I'm new here, but I think I've found peers. (Or is that someone who peers?) Words are twisty, arent they?
