The Lyrics

..everyone knows that 17-year-old boys become the world's best drivers as soon as they pass their test, and all those low profile tyres, high-volume exhausts and the rest make their VW Polo 1.0 as good as any Ferrari.
Teenage guys behind the wheel
Always thinking they're *the* real deal
Cruising round the neighbourhood
Why do they think they drive so good?
Wanna get home, wanna get home 'live
These teenage pricks should learn to drive

See them talking on their mobile phones
Doing 90 down suburban roads
They need excitement, do they need it bad?
They wreck the car - then who'll tell Dad?
Music blasting, blasting as they go
These teenage pricks in stereo



Teenage guys in souped-up cars
Tin-can gas pipe sticking out their arse
Alloy wheels and low profiles, too
In their one-litre VW
Wish they'd get a, wish they'd get a life
These teenage pricks and what they drive

By the "pricking" of my thumb, this new song is smart not dumb! More awful teen drivers than you can shake a spear at! Well done, Bard!

I may get a kick out of bashing celebs whom I feel deserve a tacky taste award, but I don't like it when so called adults attack young people who can't defend themselves. Pick on somebody your own age.

2Eagle - The sort of pillocks who drive past my driveway at double the speed limit, only avoiding accidents because of the sense and awareness of other drivers are *without exception* guys in their teens... for whom it generally takes an accident in order for them to realize just how stupid their behaviour is.. until that point, they continue to think that what they're doing is "good" driving. They don't need defending - they need waking up to just how dangerous they are. They're far more deserving of bashing than 99% of the celebrities out there.

Well said, Mr Alexander...I, like you, have had enough of these idiots and their arrogant, don't-give-a-s*** attitudes. 2eagle: I don't believe Phil was attacking ALL teenage drivers, if that's how you read it...just the losers who think they're "all that" and drive their souped-up vehicles without a concern for one other living thing. In the UK, we call them "boy racers" as they are almost always male and under 25. You must have come across the type, so I can't see how you could justify defending them: if they killed or injured you or a loved one, they would only show remorse if they thought it would buy some leniency from the courts. Nuff said

Pity the site technology doesn't allow me to post a photo of a certain yellow Ford Escort with a dent in it because a couple of decades ago a future prolific parody writer went round a corner too fast, left the road and met a .. well, I can't remember what it was after all this time but I do remember that it was hard and that I was very, very scared. Please either admit hypocrisy or proclaim in a fresh parody immense feelings of guilt for acts of youthful idiocy!!

Ah, M#, you're just sore 'cause your collar bone was already broken before the car met that bank of earth.. but I contend that there's a few orders of magnitude between my driving indiscretions and the ones being described in this parody (e.g. I wasn't even over the speed limit when that accident happened (& there was gravel on the road)), and I've never driven with excessive speed down residential roads, or stuck low profiles/tin can exhausts on any of my cars (OK, I did have a high-flow exhaust on the Imp, but that was because it just happened to be there in the breakers when I got a replacement gearbox.. and it didn't look any different)

...PS Do you have a picture of the Escort?
