The Lyrics

Dedicated to a guy I knew who took four years, nine driving tests and about a hundred driving lessons to get his license...
Test bravadobut I have run out of chances
I have crashed through some fencesI don't know how
Oh, it's a hard one
I can't tell reverse from gear one
If I weren't so beer-drunk, I
Would have missed that cow

I've been trying for my license, man
For years, but I'm unable
To get the hang of brakes, and steering in straight lines
I've been through ten instructors
Now it seems that I've been labelled
As more deadly than unexploded landmines

Test bravadoit might be nineteenth time lucky
Must watch out for that truck-y with its mighty horn
And parking, oh parkingwell, that's harder than Hades
I'm sure that Mercedes wasn't bent up before

I've just trashed my Ford for the seventh time
Coz I get confused by those one-way signs
Examiner's down to six pills a day
I'm young and dumb and having fun
Ain't it funny how pedestrians run away??

Test bravadobecause I hate taking buses
The threats and the cusses I'll tolerate
But if you test me, there's no reward for endurance
You'd better check your life insurance before it's too late..

GREAT title! And no dropoff in the actual text! And if this is based on real life, I'm sure hoping you'll never be the one to dro p me off!

Stuart: You know what Jay Leno says: "When I was a kid, 'safe sex' meant putting on the emergency brake!" Arwen: What's the matter, your elf legs too short to reach the pedals?

Michaelopedia (to borrow Spaff's by-now-blindingly-appropriate handle for you) - do you have a 160 gig hard-drive in that head of yours? - how do you have all these word-perfect quotes just idling around in the cache ready for call-up?
