The Lyrics

Was snagged by a garden statie, I had missed him around the bend.
I chanced to share a sob story, and hit the road again.
It was out on the garden parkway, said boy what's your name?
I must now advise you, you really drivin' lame.

Better be polite now, and drive my lemon well,
You see this big cheeze got a gun, so ya got to watch yourself.

Then he checked his files and found, something not quite square,
Glad I brought my wallet, I was manic in dispair.
Started to feelin' cornered, such did I surmise,
If you booze you will surely lose, now I must advise.

Better be polite now, and drive my lemon well,
You see this big cheeze got a gun, so ya got to watch yourself.

lott-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Made me sing that old song, letters by their name,
Why they in that order? I think that song's to blame.
I said hello to the Fox crew, Cops show on TV,
Then I stepped along to do their monkey walk, hope I didn't weave.

Better be polite now, and drive my lemon well,
You see this big cheeze got a gun, so ya got to watch yourself.

lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Never had problems with cops before, told me right where I stood,
Drivin' that car now you're goin' to jail, it's for your own good.
If you're drinkin' at beer gardens hardy, at least don't be a lush,
There's no harmony in a jail door clang, this scene is way too much.

Better be polite now, and drive my lemon well,
You see this big cheeze got a gun, so ya got to watch yourself.

lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Better be polite now, and drive my lemon well,
You see this big cheeze got a gun, so ya got to watch yourself.

Never been arrested in my life. Been ticketed though. My father worked the night shift, when I was a teenager, as deputy warden at the county jail. He told me in no uncertain terms that I don't even want the cops bringing me in there while he was on duty. He used to take me there sometimes when he picked up his check. Made me realize that this is hard enough to visit, couldn't imagine having to stay there.

As a native of New Jersey, I was hoping this would be a whole lot better than it is. This was about as funny as receiving a Scott Stevens check, and made about as much sense as playing disco at the Stone Pony. And let me say something about my State. When Al Gore ran for President, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have all the problems we've had these last few years.

"As a native of New Jersey" - Are you bragging or complaining with this statement? You sure are sensitive about a state that seems to only serve as a land fill for NYC garbage, or at least the northern end does. And I'm not even sure I was talking about NJ in this song. Good thing I didn't say anything bad. And what makes you think I even give you thought one when I write a parody? You have some kind of inflated ego or what? I didn't know I had to meet your approval on anything that I write. Let's see, should I write this? What will Michael think about it? Yea, real close. And so far comments are 5 to 1 indicating the parody made sense and was somewhat likable. Did you OD on stupid pills or what? Everyone make sure that if you write anything about NJ or even mention something that may relate to it that you clear it through Michael first. He is very sensitive about his "guarded state". You sure you aren't from Nutley? I won a contest once. Grand prize was a weekend trip to NJ. Runners up won a four day trip to NJ. The last hurricane that hit NJ caused $20 Million in improvements. And I'm here to tell you that I'm glad that I am from NJ - FAR from NJ. And what in the hell does this have to do with Al Gore? Again are you bragging or complaining? Ask anyone in Tennessee about 'Algore', the guy who invented the internet. He lost his own state. What does that tell you? Even McGovern won his own state. And I just can't resist quoting you on this "And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have all the problems we've had these last few years" So now you admit that it was a fair election process. Your statement says that he lost because Bush got more votes. So I don't want to hear any more belly aching from you about how that election was stolen from Algore. Your own words admit what you are really thinking.
