The Lyrics

* Either below the dashboard or "sub rosa" (secretly, confidentially).
Flip the bird nonchalantly.
Flip the bird, but not to me.
Flip the bird, that digit shoved.
Use no words, but doff your glove.
Feel so fine and unwind--
Flip the bird up.
It's a gesture that's not misunderstood
And if you get it, the bird's not good.

Fed the bird to a dumb creep--
Turd cut me off in his Jeep.
Absurd! What did I think of?
Turd gave his wheel a hard shove,
Crossed the line; his gun shines.
Now the word's "duck!"
It exploded as I ducked my head.
Had I not done so, I'd surely be dead.

Flip the bird on the highway. . .
Could be murder in the fray.
Flip the bird low, not above.
Way down near the box for gloves.
Then just drive, stay alive.
Flip the bird sub.*
