The Lyrics

Didn't know what time it was - the clock was slow
Put my head under my pillow
Some cat was layin' down some
Road rubber - lotta noise it was
And that loud sound it never fades
Drives up and down the street in constant waves
That weren't no earthquake it was that dickhead outside

There's a car man wakes us in the morn
He really irritates us
'Cus he likes to blow his horn
Then the car man revs it to the max
We know he won't forego it
'Til he gives us heart attacks
He told me:
I've got posi-traction
I've got hemi-action
Listen to my big engine

I had to phone someone ask about the noise
Both of my eardrums are what he destroys
Gripe on the phoneline with the neighbor 'bout how this annoys
Look out my window I see his spotlights
They damn near blind me they're so freakin' bright
Go get my shotgun and blow him off into the night

There's a car man racing down the road
I'd like to go and sleep in
But my head's going to explode
There's a car man rumbling up the street
I wish he go and crash it
Wish a traffic pole he'd meet
I'm thinkin':
Let the fuel line freeze up
Let the plugs all foul up
Let all the tires blow up

Car man revving in the dark
He'll make those tires squeal
As he races t'ward the park
Got that car man squarely in my sites
I tell you I will blow 'im
Into little bits and bytes
I'll tell 'im:
Hope you crash that heap in
Drive a hole so deep in
Let all the neighbors sleep in

Remember those kids that put playing cards in their bicycle spokes? This is what they grow up to be.

I could have sworn I left a comment to this first time around.. I obviously voted as the vote didn't count. Anyway, I thought this was excellent, and have lived too close to someone just like that a couple of times.

Great parody, Great original, actually, your first verse is the first time I actually laughed at a song on here (I dunno, something about a man screeching up and down the street cracks me up) 555
