The Lyrics

If you haven't finished your Christmas shopping yet, you might end up like the people in this song.
(instrumental opening)

In the corner of the State, there is Paramus.
With a hundred thousand cars, some old, some new.
They once had full tanks, but now down to a quarter.
And some wise guy tries change lanes and get through.
A car with Kentucky license plates is in front
but he'll wish he hadn't gone into that lane
'cause some Chevy Corvette "cowboy" has cut him off
and he'd like to be in Louisville again!

Please, Mister, please
don't drive Route 17!
It is our road to the malls but
it flows over!
Please, Mister, please
if you know what I mean
you won't ever wanna see that road again!

If I had a dime for every time I drove it
and it gave me headache in such agony
I could swear I'd be the richest guy in Fair Lawn
maybe even in the State of New Jersey.
But I guess I'd better finish up my shopping
'cause my girlfriend wants presents of every kind.
And there ain't no chance "I'm sorry" is sufficient
'cause if I don't get 'em, she will lose her mind!

Please, Mister, please
don't drive Route 17!
It is our road to the malls but
it flows over!
Please, Mister, please
if you know what I mean
you won't ever wanna see that road again!
The girlfriend is question is fictional... though there may be an inspiration or two out there. Of course, if you're thinking it's You Know Who, I think there are more cars on Route 17 in and around the Bergen County malls than in her entire State!

As you second perfect voter--I had to commend you on this one--it's one of the better ones I've seen from you.

Nice take on this song...it reminds me of the Fountains of Wayne song "Valley of Malls" (which may have been inspired by Rt. 17!)
