The Lyrics

At least I didn't have to rhyme it.
See see, my my, slow-slow, drag!

Look at traffic now, stopped by flags
Wearin' a hard hat, those men at work
They got two lanes closed, and a big smelly tar vat
Not in a rush, they're paid hourly
They got cones out there for miles, now, and woe is me

It's a worker with the orange vest, orange vest orange vest
Worker with the orange vest on
Worker with the orange vest, orange vest orange vest
Worker with the orange vest on

Look at that oaf on highway number five
All of us with no place else to drive
He smokes a "Cool", and hocks one just for show
He's got that big stop sign, and no one gets to go
Kill your engine, you're where you're at
He's a real bored flagger and a little too fat

It's a worker with the orange vest, orange vest orange vest
Worker with the orange vest on
Worker with the orange vest, orange vest orange vest
Worker with the orange vest on

(fade to honking horns and screaming kids)
