The Lyrics

One month ago today I was happy as a lark
But today I go to court 'cause I drove 40 through the park
I narrowly missed the old green bench
The city lets rot anyway
You know the park has no future
But for me its just another court date
They all gather round, everyone in this courthouse knows my name
We laugh, tell a few jokes, but once again I have to pay
I know I cant keep driving like this
But day after day I try
I keep saying, there aren't any cops
But today again I lied

I see squad cars everywhere I go
On the street and even at the rodeo
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
Oh I hear the sirens as the engine roars
They distract the music on my radio
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

Why, oh why, is the speed limit, so low?
I've been used to careening down the highway,
And I'm fast, oh yes I'm fast
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

The cop left a ticket on my door
But I was only doing 84
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

Oh I see his hand reaching out to me
I need a hundred dollars to set me free
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

Why, oh why, is the speed limit, so low?
I've been used to careening down the highway,
And I'm fast, oh yes I'm fast
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

Ohhhh

I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

Ohhhh

As another court day comes to an end
I was looking for supervision or something
That would keep this off my driving record
With all the people who know that I'm a crazy man
You know its funny, I thought I had his honor in the palm of my hand
I'm a speeder, he knows I'm a speeder

Oh yeah
I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder
I'm a speeder, they know I'm a speeder

(ABC3) He drives so fast, oh, tell me have you seen him? Sammy Hagar would say, "He can drive 555."

(ABC3I) This was great work, MM. I had a friend that used to keep a 100$ bill in his wallet just to bribe cops when he got pulled for speeding. You'd be surprised how many cops are dirty (he never bribed them, they took the money when they saw his DL, then let him go). Favorite line: "But I was only doing 84."

(ABC06-I) I didn't remember the OS until I was about half way through this. Then, when it hit me, I had to start over. Great job with this one, Michael. 555

(ABC3-I) Gone in sixty seconds, MM - that's the trouble with speed limits, they're always too low - funny read - 555
Arwen - October 25, 2006 - Report this comment
ABC...I can totally relate to this one, MM...I cannot EVER go fast enough, especially in town. Luckily I've been able to giggle my way out of a ticket or two...=) Nicely done.
