The Lyrics

We are not at all sure how dingoes and armadillos ended up in the same parody. Maybe he drove thru a zoo.... ;-)
Slippin' away, slidin' down a hill - oh!
Pumpin' the brakes - appalled
I hurl as I scream, whizzin' past a willow
Miss a red light and go thru all the new city mall

Sportin' neck brace; isn't very pretty
Wasn't benign - that wall
Eddie and Walt: auto technicians were sh*tty oh!
Missing brake light; I'll go sue overhauls off them all

Messed up tonight, broke my bones, see
Killed all my chrome and nine traffic cones
Yo! Brakin's phoney...

Failin' again - hit an armadillo
Brakin' but pressure's falled
Save me tonight, upending countless dingoes!
Been pumpin' twelve times but fearin' here comes the death of us all

Press in a plight - pedal's lowly
Cylinders blown - here's ten-mile zone
So I be groaning...

Calibrate, calibrate, brakes that I'm using!
Calibrate, calibrate, brakes that I'm using!
Calibrate, calibrate, brakes that I'm using!

(repeat about 20 times or until brakes implode or Eddie & Walt's heads explode, whichever comes first)

Cerebrate do you in this and all your efforts. I think it's a five-dog night.
