The Lyrics

Number 8 of 11 on my Billy Joel Greatest Hits/ Fast Food album. Should be done anytime now!
Don't go inside, the line takes too long
I never enter through the door
Just pull your car around to the side
You don't have to stand anymore
Just drive to the box, and say your order
It's very convenient so far
I go there all times, and fish out my dimes
I go to Drive-Thru's in my car

Then you go pay at the window
Have your payment ready by then
They'll hand you change to end the transaction
Then continue when I say when

Wait in that line for the next person
It's your turn when they leave afar
You're almost to the very last window
You're in a Drive-Thru in your car

Wait at the window and pick up your meal
Your drink, your burger, and fries too
Now you are done, you've completed the deal
Now leave, and you can start to chew

I think you loved it, and that's a good thing
This perfection cannot be marred
It tastes so good, I could just sing!
Thank God for Drive-Thru's in a car!

I really liked this. It flowed well and I got a whole mental image of it as I read through it. Very original and all so true. We have all been here and done this. 5's for you!

Sorry, I've had occasion to go dyslectic when I reading a good parody.

Not bad. It could use a little work, but don't go changing to try and please me. And I don't know what it is about rockers from Long Island, but you wouldn't want to them to drive you: Billy Joel, Lou Reed, and rest in peace, Harry Chapin. Wild Man: You go "dyslectic"? You said it, not me.

Yes, Dyslexia (dis-lek-se-a) from the latin word "dys" meaning not And the Greek word "lexis" meaning speech. Impairment of the ability to read and / or to write. "Dyslectic" is form of the word. look it up. REFERENCE Page 432 The American Heritage Dictionary. Must I explain everything like "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"

Good one WDH. Clever.
neminem - May 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Eh, 4s. Could've been funnier, and a few spotty places I noticed on timing, though that could just be because I don't really know the song.
Jeff Reuben - May 21, 2004 - Report this comment
I agree with neminem on this one. It was well written and cute, but not roll-on-the-floor funny.

Don't ask me to explain why, but "I never enter through the door" struck me as quite funny. Good job, What Da Hell.

Rhythm problems. Try to match the rhythm of the original. Also, many of your accents are on the 'wrong' syllable. Sorry, I'm picky.
