The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Avoid the freeway scene
Detour the back roads to avert my fears
I won’t deny I’m afraid I’ll collide
With that Volvo again
I don’t like drivin’ into drains

Yesterday un’ cloudy skies
Memories remain of those Swedes that flew by
I lost control – thought I’d end up John Doe
Left me farked - in a drain
Last night when drivin’ in the rain

Scandanav’ian malev’lence:
Could never have believed they’d target me
But since when Bjorn and Bennie
Tried killing me near Denny’s
I do, I do, I do, I do (hee hee)

Weren’t they Swedish guys with hons?
I’m now an Abba-phobe, I carry a gun
I may seem a fool - facing my Waterloo
Am I going insane?
As far as I can ascertain...

Next time I’ll fly or take the train
My fear of Abba’s now ingrained

I like Abba, no matter what the Abba-litionists say! (Did this collision happen in the San "Fernando" Valley?)

I'm with you on the back roads instead of freeways.

Your fear of Abba? LOL. . .interesting twist. . .5's and scary story by the way.

LOL! (or in renaldo's case, SOS!). Dave, this song was already under construction, it started out life as "Driving in the rain" - windscreen wipers don't work etc, and I thought "THAT SUCKS - Merry will tear me a new one if I suggest that to her". Around the same time I saw John Barry had made some comment in relation to having some sort of Abba-phobia, in another parody. In my unconscious, that must have stuck. And I don't know about there, but in Aus Volvo drivers have terrible reputations!

alvin, from your posts it looks like she wanted her volvo touched more than once. BTW, I found your comment more interesting in its first draft heh heh :)

Pip - I believe it was one of my ABBA parodies that Sir John Barry made that comment on, but I'm not sure and I'm too lazy to go look it up. And what? No comment from Peter Andersson yet on this? And it must have been that "farked" ref in the parody that got Alvin all stirred up and inVOLVOed. So much for ABBA-scariness. I happen to like their music however but you two really shot from the hip on this one. Volvaciousness at its best. I like this, yes indeed I do I do I do I do I do. I fell out when I read that line. High Fives!

So I'm supposed to comment on this huh? Well, I can stand ABBA and some of their stuff is fairly OK but I'm not so big on them as you might think, and that hasn't improved since Björn Ulveaus became one of our country's most outspoken advocatees for a ban on filesharing and shutting down YouTube and the likes, you could say he's driving into the ditch in that area!
