The Lyrics

Frivolous lawsuits are a plague to the court system here in the US. Everybody's a victim of something....
I heard they made good coffee
I heard they were in style
And so I hit the drive through
And in a little while
They handed me a foam cup
And then I drove away-ay

Steering my car with one finger
Dialing my phone with my nose
Spilling my coffee on my hands
Spilling hot coffee, burned my hands
Suing their asses with lawyers
'Cause they spilled my coffeeon my hands

There were no signs that I saw
Warning I could get burned
This is, for them, a costly
Lesson to be learned
I had no way of knowing
So I just kept right oh-on

Rolling up windows with elbows
Driving with both my eyes closed
Spilling my coffee on my hands
Spilling hot coffee, burned my hands
Suing their asses with lawyers
'Cause they spilled my coffeeon my hands

Five million bucks should do me
The lawyers got their share
A new idea came to me
I think I'll dry my hair
A new way in the morning
In the microwa-ave

Set cruise control with my kneecap
Reading a book as I drive
Spilling my coffee on my hands
Spilling hot coffee, burned my hands
Suing their asses with lawyers
They made me spill coffeeon my hands

Yeah, it was way too damned hot
Yeah, it was hot enough to burn
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, owwhoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh
Spilling my coffee..on my hands

Forget parody of the month, this is my parody of the day! Fantastic stuff, Rick, you truly are a master of words 555
Johnny D - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
I especially love the lines that describe the stupid things the driver is doing... "Steering my car with one finger ... Dialing my phone with my nose" ... "Rolling up windows with elbows ... Driving with both my eyes closed" ... "Set cruise control with my kneecap ... Reading a book as I drive"

Hilarious from start to finish. A true masterpiece, and definitely SOTM worthy. Great lines EVERYWHERE.
Jeff Reuben - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Excellent, I can certainly relate. Sign Arwen up for the video, she's a natural for this one!
Arwen - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Rick this is FABulous...I have way too many favorite lines to pick one to showcase...but I agree that the choruses were the very best!! (and if you want me to star in the video, as Jeff said, I'd be happy to...but it's gonna cost you...; )..)

DKTOS (other than the tagline), but DGAF, either. Great premise, beautifully executed.
Rick C - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Wow, thanks for all your kind words. Arwen, WHAT is it gonna cost me to have you in the video? Do Elf Princess, Divas of Divinity even drive?

These anatomical descriptions are hiliarious!
AFW - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Finely engineered spoof spotlighting the nonsense of these litigations.
Arwen - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, one sure way to get me to do some pro bono work is to call me a Diva of Divinity...=)

Dude, that was so awesome. It's said that suing is what Americans do best, and you pretty much summed it up right there! 5s all the way, my man!

Thank you, Red Ant and Inferno714.

Phil, I think the coffee you spilled was D-GAF-einated.
Stuart McArthur - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
yeah, beautiful Rick - reminds me of when Kramer did it on Seinfeld - should sue the car-makers next for not installing airbags to protect you from such mishaps - 555
Rick C - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, Stu. I don't remember that episode but, I'm a big Kramer fan!

I'm told that the heat of the coffee is to cover up the lack of strengt of taste, I'm surprised that it can hurt anything. (We're talking about Starbucks here, aren't we?).
Rick C - June 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Peter, I'm not sure it was Starbuck's. I remember hearing about a settlement a couple of years ago against one of the fast-food chains. I think it may have been McDonalds, actually. Anyway, this person burned themselves while driving and drinking coffee. The lawyers claimed there weren't warnings about the potential of hot coffee to burn. The jury found for the plaintiff and awarded millions. Lack of common sense doesn't even come into question in many of these lawsuits.

This parody had me laughing so hard, I think I gave all fives but I was laughing so hard I'm not sure where I clicked. Awesome job.
