The Lyrics

Restrooms too far between
If ya' know, just what I mean..
Change diapers every stop
They all gotta' have soda pop
Vacation travel woes,
It's gettin' tougher as it goes,
No picnic..not by no means!
Oh Lord! Kids On The Road!

Mom, Tommy's in my seat!
We're starvin'..when do we eat?
Don't yell, let Daddy drive..
Gotta' make St. Jo. by five
Our gas gauge is runnin' low..
That car ahead's too slow!
Ain't a picnic..not by no means!
Oh Lord! Kids On The Road!

Makes ya' wanna just turn around,
And head for a bar...
Find a hitch hiker,
And give him your car!
I know, we said it last year,
But this time it's so..
Stayin' home for next year,
We ain't gonna' go!

Oh,did that say Highway ten?
I b'lieve we're lost again..
Directions he won't ask,
That's gotta' be my task..
Now, Baby's needin' a change,
Park here, it's open range..
Not a picnic, by any means!
Oh Lord! Kids On The Road!
