The Lyrics

This parody captures the offstage vehicular suicide of the tragic hero Willy Loman of Aurther Miller's "Death of a Salesman" from the point of view of an unfortunate bohemian neighbor who happened to be walking his dog outside the Loman house at the climactic moment.
Willy Loman, driving down the street
Willy Loman, of Miller's tragedy
Willy Loman
Your eyes deceive you, don't tell the truth
No one could drive as bad as you
Mercy

Willy Loman, won't you yield for me?
Willy Loman, your glasses help you see?
Willy Loman
Man, you drive so fast--erratically
Are you a stoner just like me?
Wow

Willy Loman, hear my cries
Willy Loman, clear your eyes
Willy Loman, give your wheel to me
Willy Loman, hey, hey, hey
Willy Loman, right of way?
Willy Loman, say you'll stay away
'Cause I fear you; don't die tonight
Don't hit that baby, just hang a right

Willy Loman, just cruise on by
Willy Loman, live your lie
Willy Loman, just go away, hey...okay
Yes, that's the way it should be, okay
You just best go on home; it's late
That was a harrowed fright, but wait
What do I see?
Is he driving back at me?
Yeah, he's driving back at me
Oh, no, Willy Loman!!!
