The Lyrics

For Lynn.
My husband is a competent driver
In fact he's quite reserved
But if not for me
He would not see
That truck that's about to swerve
About to swerve

(refrain)
They call me backseat driver
Safety is my middle name
Don't you gripe or complain
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!
Bum-pa-pa-pa
Eyes on the road!
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!

I know I'm just a little bit nervous
But I have to let off some steam
I really try
But sometimes I
Let out a blood-curdling scream
Blood-curdling scream

(refrain)
They call me backseat driver
Safety is my middle name
Don't you gripe or complain
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!
Bum-pa-pa-pa
Eyes on the road!
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!

It's safer in a big Continental
A Forerunner or a big Humvee
But I'm terrified
Each time I ride
In your '67 XKE
XKE

(refrain)
They call me backseat driver
Safety is my middle name
Don't you gripe or complain
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!
Bum-pa-pa-pa
Eyes on the road!
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!

I know you think I'm crazy
But please don't think I'm rash
If I scream and cry
And you have to pry
My fingers off of the dash
Off of the dash

(refrain)
They call me backseat driver
Safety is my middle name
Don't you gripe or complain
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!
Bum-pa-pa-pa
Eyes on the road!
Watch that semi!
Get over to the center lane!

This was great! I can't believe no comments or votes. So here's one. Or five.

Rick D--Thanks. Maybe the original song is obscure to many?

Not too obscure for me! Know it well and I now I like both versions!
