The Lyrics

Traffic incident with a drink-drive psycho.
You were not afraid, you drove while you were tight
They'll get you bang to rights
Then you'll be goin' down.

Just by chance he crossed the median with a girl
You sent him in a whirl
That's when he gurned an' curled around.

Did you feel like leavin'
Did you realise
That this will be serious if he dies.


Then I kill an' stuff his face with gasoline
It sounds a bit obscene
An' his head burns till there is a technicolour spit an' foam.

Now his girlfriend, to the law she makes a call
An' then she starts to bawl
I go to allay, but I scare an' she's back on the phone.

So her neck I sever
I will have to pay
I will see my whole world fall apart an' feel dismay.

Got it wrong, got it wrong, slid car in rain
Got it wrong, slid car in rain.


Now the coppers come an' punch me in the head
I wish that I had fled
My life will be very strange.

As my eyebrow splits they use the club an' mace
I'd burned a human face
How things forever change.

Fun I have forsaken
Now I feel the heat
Look at all the lawmen in the street.

Got it wrong, got it wrong, slid car in rain
Got it wrong, slid car in rain.


With this mess up, looks like I'll end up in jail
Where butt lubes are for sale
Must get the hell out of here.

Shall I run for the car
Yes, I'll run for the car
With all the lawmen on the ball I won't get far.

Careful what you carry
Coz the ban is wise
With a knife you'll out more, in their eyes.

Got it wrong, got it wrong, slid car in rain
Got it wrong, slid car in rain.

great job on a hard song to pace

Thanks Alvin - you're right about the pacing being hard but I bet you find it more satisfying to finish a difficult one like this than one that only takes a couple of hours - I certainly do. PS - I've read your version of this song and the pacing is great but I haven't got a clue what you're on about - the only thing I know about baseball is that it's a sport.
