The Lyrics

And once again, I parody a song by an artist I have never heard of, for no real reason other than I have a severe lack of parody ideas, and Artistry gives me stuff to work with.
As I was drivin' over
The Great Dividing Mountains*
I saw Captain Peril
And his radar he was packin'
I first stepped on the pedal
And then rolled down my window
I said "Get outta my way!"
Through the blockade, I did then go

What's this thing that you call 'speed limit'?
Get out my Holden-o!
Get out my Holden-o!
It's risky in my car-o

I ran right out of petrol
And he fined me lots of money
He fined me ev'ry penny
But it did not stop my folly
'Cause it's in my nature
Drivin' like a fool-a
Stomp the pedal, exhaust fumin'
And no cop will ever stop me!

What's this thing that you call 'the handbrake'?
Get out of my way-o!
Get out of my way-o!
I'm risky with my car-o

[Musical interlude]

Now some guys like the driftin'
And some guys like the engine
But most guys hate to hear
The fuzz sirens a-wailin'
Me I like speedin'
Specially when the cops are comin'
And now I've gone through seven
Diff'rent cars, now they're all just wrecks, yeah

What's this thing that you call 'a seatbelt'?
Get out my car, you dope!
Get out my car, you dope!
It's risky in my car-o
*Meant to be the Great Dividing Range, but had to be changed for rhyming reasons.

Good song, I don't know much Thin Lizzy either

:-) Some good subs (the OS is a favourite of mine, this sang through well)

that was good the way I think metallica did a cover of this song. 5's in the jar-o :)

If you're going to be risky, do us all a favor and run over the lead singer, and (why not) the whole band of Thin Lizzy.

I had to look up what a "Holden" was... I'll echo what Phil said, and especially nice job with the "Mush a ring a doo rum a da" parts. Good stuff, T-Cop.

(Artistry) Have you been watching me drive? Fun work.

(Dec2) Funny, I enjoyed hearing these unfamiliar Thin Lizzy songs, even though I had a hard time parodying them. (Matthias, lead singer Phil Lynott is already dead! :P) TCOP, I wish you had a footnote for what a "Holden" is. But this was very good, OTM pacing lent to the humor.

Artistry, not Dec2--too many contests, and I am not awake yet...

I thought the title sub was excellent. This was funny and well done. I'm glad you weren't driving after drinking whiskey from a jar. save others the trouble...A Holden is a brand of car.

(Artistry) Thin LIzzy.. . jeese I hope to never parody these guys again. . .your parody is an improvement over the OS, I have to admit that I had a little trouble with the OS, some of the lines seemed a lot like the original--but very funny. . .and "Brainless on This Write" describes my familiarity with your opening comment;)
