The Lyrics

Drive safely!
At five o'clock, get off of work
I punch my card, no time to lurk
I get in my Ferarri, wanna get home real soon
You know, it takes some time to drive on home
The city streets are packed, you know
Cars barely creeping,
Every horn beeping
Yeah!

Going home can take such a long while
Been a couple hours, only gone a couple miles
Well all the cars are crammed, all the cars are crammed,
All the freakin' cars are crammed,
It's a traffic jam

Such long days are very bad,
It's stressful workin' for The Man
Wanna leave the workplace,
Dash out dragging my worn suitcase
Suddenly the traffic light
Won't turn green, this really bites
Mama says she's waiting,
Ham's in the oven baking
Yeah!

"Come on home, boy!" Mama cried on the phone
"You're dinner's in the oven and you soon should be at home."
But try to understand
Try to understand
Try try try to understand,
It's a traffic jam, Mama
I'm in a traffic jam

Going home is such a waste of time
'Cause gas ain't cheap to be sittin' here waiting at this light
But try to understand,
Try to understand,
Ahhh! Ahhh!
Try-try-try, try to understand,
Try try try to understand,
It's a traffic jam

Ohh, I'm really crammed.

{about 3 minutes of guitars and cheesy synth organs}

Going home can take such a long while
Been a couple hours, only gone a couple miles
Well all the cars are crammed, all the cars are crammed,
All the freakin' cars are crammed,
It's a traffic jam

It's a traffic ja-a-am!
Yeeeeaaahh!
Ahhhh!

I don't know the original, but I read through it and voted 5-5-5 anyway because we all deal with traffic jams, especially situations like the kind described here.
