Parody Song Title:

"Parking In The Street"

The Lyrics

Driving all around the town
No free spaces - oh, what a treat!
Summer's here but it makes no odds
To parking in the street

Parking right in Blackburn
And out in Preston there
Liverpool's city
All we need are spaces
More spaces
Give us spaces everywhere
No machines to charge us
Make spaces larger
For parking off the street

Oh, it doesn't matter how you glare
I know you're waiting just there
So come on, every driver grab another
Parking bay around the corner

So we're parking, we're parking in the street
Because the county council has undercounted
For parking cars so neat
There'll be swearing, cursing and much reversing
To park here in the street

Blackburn, Burnley and Leeds
Bury, Hull, Harrogate
Can't forget York city
All we need is spaces, more spaces
Parking spaces everywhere
There'll be much placating the irritated
Driving round the streets

Oh, it doesn't matter if you swear
I just can't move anywhere
So come on, every driver find another
Parking bay around the corner

They're parking, parking in the street
Way down in Blackburn, in school term
They're parking in the street
Let's form a queue today to pay and display
We're parking in the street
Across each great big town, all of us frown
At parking in the street
