The Lyrics

Parking time has come
Cash - I shall use none
Diplomats feed no meters
They just abuse their immunity
We can park like they do

Come on baby (don't feed the meter)
Baby take my hand (don't feed the meter)
We'll just stiff the city (don't feed the meter)
That's my parking plan

Parking free is fun
Here I pay no one
Diplomats from the U.N.
They just park here for eternity
Diplomats from the U.N.

40,000 ambassadors everyday (like diplomats from the U.N.)
40,000 ambassadors everyday (redefine free parking)
Another 40,000 coming everyday (we can park like they do)

Come on baby (don't feed the meter)
Baby take my hand (don't feed the meter)
We'll just stiff the city (don't feed the meter)
That's my parking plan

Parking space for one
Grab before it's gone
Came the late night meter-maid
She made it clear I couldn't stay on
Then my car door opened and my cash appeared
My money blew when the wind appeared
My money flew and then disappeared (and then I was afraid)

Come on baby (lend a dollar here)
But she ran from me (then I started to cry)
She looked backward and said goodbye (she used to park like I do)
I had no cash in hand (she used to park like I do)

Come back baby (help feed the meter!)

Johnny, you seem very modest in your comments, but you keep getting better. This is another very original idea, done well. And I hate the original song

Excellent! (And I love the original song). Advance to Free Parking. Take three 5's.

Likewise. I wanted to mention, one of my originals is about a guy who has to keep leaving a line at the post office to put coins in the meter before he gets a ticket. The whole idea came from my love of almost dirty titles. It's called "Beat the Meter".
