The Lyrics

I'm seldom in a hurry on the freeway
Gotta' make it last, my LTD
Might not get there fast, but I still get there
Always in one piece, citation free

I'm proud to be a hokey, old & poky
A guy who drives young people up a wall
Won't see my car goin' ninety miles an hour
But I pay my share of taxes for this crawl

People buzz by yakkin' on the cellphones
Textin', munchin' Big Macs, crazy crew
Playin' with their pets, as they go speedin'
Some of their pets have four legs, some just two

Yeah, I'm proud to be a hokey, old & poky
I'm shufflin' with a cane out here in the aisle
If you've got things to do just scooch around me
I might stop and smell the roses for a' while

Life can be one quick trip to a cemetery,
Or a journey with more setting suns
I prefer the latter, so I'm layback
Fastest thing about me is when my nose runs

So, I'm proud to be a hokey, old & poky
The guy who drives young zippies up the wall
You won't see my car goin' ninety miles an hour
But I've paid my share of taxes for this crawl

Yes, I've paid my share of taxes for this crawl

LOL @ "Fastest thing about me..."

I've been driving like that for the last week and a half, as my part of the UK is currently under 2 feet of snow.

I'm not a good highway driver myself. I drive up to 40-50 mph, even on the fast lane. Driving 555 mph on this one!
