The Lyrics

Traffic on the freeway makes me angry.
Traffic on surface streets makes me cry.
Traffic, when you're in it, moves so slowly.
Traffic almost always makes me whine.

If I had spinner wheels I could give you,
I'd pimp your ride, just like in East L.A.
If I had XM radio for you,
I'd play a song with bass that booms away.

Traffic on the freeway makes me angry.
Traffic on surface streets makes me cry.
Traffic, when you're in it, moves so slowly.
Traffic almost always makes me whine.

If I had bumper stickers to give you,
I'd use stickers worth reading while you idle.
If I had hybrids that I could sell to you,
You'd save some gas, in traffic, all this while.

Traffic on the freeway makes me angry.
Traffic on surface streets makes me cry.
Traffic, when you're in it, moves so slowly.
Traffic almost always makes me whine.

Traffic almost all the time makes me whine.
Traffic, going no way...

I can sympathize with that. Better to take side streets.

It's been a while since I've heard the original, so I gave you the benefit of the doubt on the pacing vote. There's a lot to complain about with traffic these days: the choruses were begging to include them. Good reversing of the happy nature of TOS.
