The Lyrics

Back seat's bouncin' crazy up and down
The same as my poor head
And it's time for raves and rants
Light poles are rushin' by us like comb teeth
This limousine is flyin'
And I think I've peed my pants..

Make Arthur Park!
He's loony as a lark..
Arthur, my chauffeur, has gone insane
On the curves, he doesn't brake it,
There's an exit, make him take it,
We should not be doin' ninety in the rain,
Oh, no!

There's still time enough to catch the plane
Should I grab the wheel?
Reach in front, pull out the keys?
My life, he's holding loosely in his hands
And I'd really like to get there in one piece..

Make Arthur Park!
He's loony as a lark!
Arthur, my chauffeur, has gone insane
On the curves, he doesn't brake it,
There's an exit, make him take it
We should not be doin' ninety in the rain,
Oh, no!

(break)

I just hope a State Patrolman's near
So. he will stop us
We'll be stickers on that busses rear
If they don't cop us
Think Art had a snort or two at home
Just wish I would've thought of smelling his breath first
Of all the crazy rides of my life,
All the crazy rides of my life
This one is the worst

Arthur holds my life within his grasp
Don't want to lose it
Hope this ain't the way that I will die
Lord, please don't choose it!
My panicked brain keeps screechin' like the tires
And it feels like I'm confronting fires of Hell
Of all the crazy rides of my life,
All the crazy rides of my life
Never had one so fast,
Now, I hear myself yell...

(extended break)

Make Arthur Park!
He's loony as a lark!
Arthur, my chauffeur, has gone insane
On a curve, he doesn't brake it,
I don't think we're gonna' make it
We should not be doin' ninety in the rain..
Oh, no!
Oh, no
No, No...
OH NOOOO!!

(Bang! Crash! Boom!)

I would have enjoyed this more with a little bit of variation in the choruses. However, this is still AWESOME! Great concept and great execution.
