The Lyrics

Driving in my Geo
Cruisin' down the highway
Limit's fifty-five now
But I'm doin' fifty-eight

Yeah, darlin'
I'm so wild and crazy
Drinking non-alcoholic wine
I'm gonna get rub-on tattoos
Then stay out 'til nine

Left a stack of pennies
When I tipped the waiter
Didn't hold the rail
When I rode the escalator

Yeah darlin'
Gonna open email
From a person that I don't know
I'll go out without a jacket
And play in the snow

Let the others be mild
I was born
Born to be wild
And I'm getting' down
I'm playin' Jackson Browne
Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Gonna see a movie
One that's rated PG
Gonna ring your doorbell
Then I'll hide where you can't see

Yeah baby
Gonna run with scissors
Gonna eat a McDonald's meal
Then ride in a car that's got a
Female at the wheel

I let the others be mild
I was born
Born to be wild
And I'm rockin' on
I'm playin' Elton John
Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Great parody Rex, had me smiling all the way. I'm truly wild: I once got a ticket doing 74 in a 55 zone in my Geo, lol.

Oh yeah? Well, I stole a Lego-block from school once when I was six! And then I kept it for exactly 30 minutes before I broke down and returned it to school and begged for punishment and I only cried for two days afterwards! 555

(ABC3-B) Similiar to Weird Al's "Young, Dumb, And Ugly" except it's a parody of Steppenwolf, not a style parody of AC/DC. Still, excellent work, Rex!

(ABC3) I think your song is funnier than Al's (mentioned by bobpiecheese above).

(ABC3B) "Gonna open email/From a person that I don't know" is risky these days. And eating at McD's is definitely asking for trouble! Oh, see above, and this is one of my favorites of yours, Rex.

(ABC3-B) Whoa! That's hilarious Rex! - that's my kinda parody - pressed all my funny buttons - literally laughed out loud at some of the lines, esp. "Gonna open email From a person that I don't know" - you've got a new fan - 555

(ABC) Just like Bono, sounds like you live life on The Edge!

Pretty funny! Liked the Geo line, Jackson Browne, and many others.

(ABC3-B) Wow, Rex, I doubt I could hang out with you for too long. I'm not into this kind of wildness. Just reading about it wore me out. :-) 555

(ABC-B) Rex, you crazy mother. Just like Stu, this is my kinda parody. I love to hear a recording of it. 555

Thank you all for the comments. Kristof, there will be a recording of this on my website (parodyman dot com), I'm just not sure when.
