The Lyrics

[Sound of windshield breaking]

Friday night I crashed the Rover
Saturday the Benz rolled over
Sunday came I lost control again
I was only out for food
Swear I wasn't drinking, dude
When I smashed my '67 Ci-tro-en

Well you sent me into town alone
I hit some dumb old lady's home
But it looked like Little Caesars in the rain
She was gone when I arrived
So at least the broad's alive
And her kitchen's finally got a drive-through la-a-ane

You made me drive
I made the papers
(Oh!) But it just ain't quite the news report I'm looking for
Don't call Life Flight
That scares the neighbors
I made a wrong turn off the road
'Cause you made me drive

Well - Remember when I hit that tree?
I swear the thing jumped out at me
And driving up that wall was ill-advised
It's not true that I was blitzed
I did rehab just for kicks
All the same I'm glad I don't get breathalyzed

(Now) It torques me off that Christie Brinkley
Tells the press she doesn't think me
Competent to even steer a train
She was always hard to please
Wish I'd married Cheryl Tiegs
And I'd written "Uptown Girl" for someone sa-a-ane

You made me drive
I make roads scary
(D'oh!) But a crash may be the boost my sales are looking for
('Cause) Things sure turned bright
(Mmm) For Halle Berry
They're making jokes, oh god I know
'Cause you made me drive

[Repeat whatever. The public won't remember anyway.]

They're making fun 'cause you made me drive...
They're making fun 'cause you made me drive...
"Citroen" is Dutch for "lemon."

This song went in the wrong direction entirely. It wasn't steered well. It shifted way too often and screeched and skidded all over the place. OK, im outta puns. In fact, it was an acura portrayal of how Billy failed to Dodge the wall. 555

I was tempted to give you all ones for making "muh boy" (as they say on "Pardon the Interruption") look bad, but that would be like sending troops to die in a war against a dictator because he tried to kill my dad. Especially since it made Christie Skankley look worse. (I used to hate him for taking her away from me, now I'm mad at her for cheating on him!) Captain Spaff will get us high tonight, just a little spoof and we'll be smilin'.

Good parody and thanks for the Dutch lesson. The "steer a train" line was my fave.

My first vote ever- all 5s for a bloody brilliant parody. I've only just started this, but I have an urge to "do" Billy now (not what you're thinking..)

Very-belated thanx, Laudanum & RAD & Patagio & Jeffaroo & Smeagol & Aggro & Evenstar & Jackie & Michaelopedia & Janwin & Billy Don't Be A Florio & Johnkins & Kristof!

Robert Lund was going to record this, but the BJ story only stayed in the news for about six and a half minutes. Oh, and I'm not kidding about "Citroen."

I think I have a hundred or so "Thank you Jack" comments I need to make. So let's get started, shall we?

Thank you, Jack.

Just went to see Billy Joel last week. Not bad for an old fat drunk! (And Billy Joel was good too haha). Anyway, now my wife is listening to him relentlessly, and when that sort of thing happens I still think about old parody titles, even great ones I never bothered to comment on. And the odds you'll ever see this are not good, I know, but hey! Great parody dude!
