The Lyrics

Recently, Mari watched someone hit a deer with a car right where we live in the middle of the city. We wondered how he got so far in.
Watch out for cars, old Bambi said
The lights they shine, with heavy loads
I've seen many cars turn up
Out on the forest roads
I am not the one who's likely to freeze
Each night out there between the shoulders
Not the scaredy one
That is afraid of fun
Not the "turn and run"
This cool deer is bolder

Oh, car light, car lights
They've got the power to make me stare with fright
Put that stupid cell phone down
I shouldn't have looked at these lights tonight

They have the touch of metal on meat
Now my condition is critical
Now I can't run away, lady
I feel so weak
Humans are looking at me-pitiful
Hope there's a heaven
Critters like me
Darkness everywhere and little kids cry
Oh, blackness, blackness, all I can see
Go on build more highways for more creatures to die

Oh, car light, car lights
They've got the power to make me stop with fright
Put that stupid hot dog down
I shouldn't have looked at these lights tonight

There's not much living space
In the forest resort
They'll rub us out
They'll shoot us down just for sport
They're building racetracks, baby, baby goodbye
Screech, screech, life is short
Out go the teens, in their new wheels
I hope they got their brights turned on baby
Soon one of us will dent that automobile
I hope it's bitter when they eat again, maybe

Oh, car light, car lights
They've got the power to make me die of fright
Put that stupid lipstick down
I shouldn't have looked at these lights tonight
