The Lyrics

Billy Joel seems to be a little accident -prone. I don't really know why, but I can speculate......
Always changin' lanes in traffic
Press the pedal to the floor
Don't look both ways, I'm too distracted
Always thinking notes in score
Behind the whe-el, I'm always trouble
After I have left the baró(hic)-mmmm
I'm so surprised, I'm still alive
I guess I'm just bad with a car

Don't go riding, while I'm driving
You just might wind up in a tree -ooh-wee-ow
You could be leaving, but not arriving
When you go on the road with me
I don't want to employ a chauffeur
I don't think I'm that big a star
I just want travel without a mishap
I guess I'm just bad with a car

I need to get sometimes from A to B
Without a wall in which to slam
I guess there's some things that I just don't see
I wish I'd passed that eye exam

I say I'm driving to my appointment
Although I might not get too far
In my glove box I keep some ointment
I guess I'm just bad with a car

Two car parodies, both to Billy Joel. You and Spaff really are on the same page today.

Billy was just asking for this, wasn't he? Maybe it's a Long Island thing. Harry Chapin had a number of accidents before the one that finally did him in.
