The Lyrics

Time for some "road rage".
One lane or the other, make up your mind now,
So I can pass ya pass ya pass ya pass ya
One lane or the other, or cops will get ya
I hope they getcha getcha getcha getcha
One lane or the other, so I don't hit ya
So I don't hitcha hitcha hitcha hitcha
One day, maybe next week, you'll get a ticket
You'll get a ticket, you roadhog

I will drive past you, clown
And write your tag number down
For those cops downtown

One way or another I'm gonna pass ya
I'm gonna pass ya pass ya pass ya pass ya
One way or another I'll blow right by ya
I'll pass ya, I'll pass ya
One lane or the other, you only get one
Why don't ya take it take it take it take it?
One lane, you only need one
So you should take one, just take one

And if your headlights are out
Won't follow your car about
Get off of this route

One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip, a slip of the lip or another
I will avoid ya, get away from ya
One way or another you'll get a ticket
You'll get a ticket ticket ticket ticket
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip

I'll walk to the court
Give them my true report
Where I can say
You drove bad that day
Listen as your penalty is read out
Your license suspended, beyond any doubt

One way or another, I will report ya, I'll getcha,
Getcha getcha getcha getcha
(Where I can see it all, find some cops to call)
[repeat until fade]

We released the original in the 70s, not the 80s. But it was a great parody of our song; I give it a perfect score.

Thanks and drive safe, everyone. Alvin-I've seen lots of folks not take your advice. Leah-I'm lucky enough not to have to drive to work, but I've learned that bad drivers can appear anywhere. Deborah-I didn't remember exactly when your original came out, but I'm glad you liked this version.

I howled at this one right away. I wish I had connections to my campy local legendary hometown radio station so this could be recorded for drive time commentary with yours and Blondie's permission. On a personal note - It brought back memories of when I used to sing a parody of this song to my late great parakeet Dmitri: 'Mitya, Mitya, Mitya, Mitya'.... and 'I.... will.... FLY PAST YOUR HOUSE.... leave my poop on the way.... I'm sweet anywa---ay.'
