The Lyrics

It perplexes me that there are 5 parodies of Gloria Estefan's version of "Turn the Beat Around" on this site, but no parodies of the original Vicki Sue Robinson version. To this, I ask: What the funk? HA HA! Get it? "What the funk"? 'Cause, you know, we're talking about disco music? Anyways, potentially lame joking aside, this is the first parody of "Turn the Beat Around" by Vicki Sue Robinson that anyone's done on this site. It's about a road trip gone very wrong, which thankfully has not happened to me. Enjoy the parody, & keep on funkin'!
Turn the car around,
You’re going the wrong way!
Turn around right now,
You’re going the wrong way!
You are going-

Hey man, you missed the exit,
If you keep this up, I’ll be at the end of my wits!
Don’t you know there’s an invention called a map?
If you don’t, I guess that your brains are made of crap!
Whoa!

Turn the car around,
(Turn it around, yeah!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
Turn around right now,
(Hey! Hey!)
You’re going the wrong way!
You are going-
(You are going!)

Turn the car around,
You’re going the wrong way!
(Turn around, I said turn around!)
Turn around right now,
(Hey! Hey! Yeah!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(Whoa!!)
You are going-

Hey man, pull over because
We are now being pursued by the fuzz.
I don’t know what you did to deserve this,
But I now wish there was one less exit we missed, whoa, whoa!
‘Cause when a police car starts-a chasin’ you
With its lights & siren blarin’, with the woo-woo-woo,
Then that means you must pull over, yeah, yeah, yeah!
But if you decide to disobey him,
Then he’ll get more of his friends & get the S.W.A.T. team
With their rat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat machine guns, hey!

Turn the car around,
(Yeah, talkin’ ‘bout the car!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(My, my, my, my, my, my!)
Turn around right now,
(Oh, yeah!!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(That’s the wrong way, man!)
You are going-
You are going-
You are going-
You are going-

[instrumental solo]

(Whoa!)
Turn the car around,
You’re going the wrong way!

(Yeah! Yeah!)
Turn around right now,
(Turn around right now!)
You’re going the wrong way!

(Whoa!)
You are going-
Turn the car around,
(Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(Wrong way, man!)
Turn around right now,
(Yeah! Yeah!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(My, my, my, myyyyyyyyy!)
Turn the car around,
(Turn the car around, yeah!)
You’re going the wrong way!
(That’s the wrong way, man!)
Turn around right now,
(Hey! Hey!)
You’re going the wrong way…
In memory of Vicki Sue Robinson, 1954-2000.
