The Lyrics

I could have composed this on a long car trip, but I didn't.
I'm driving in my car, I turn up the radio
I roll the windows down, to let my long hair blow
Wish I could stand No-Doz, but it gets me too wired
Cause when I drive
I-I'm tired!

Late at night, I'm tryin to get home
I wish I was in bed, or that I wasn't alone
Feels like I'm on narcotics, but I'm a sleep-fighter
This road's too smooth..
I-I'm tired!

I should have had a nap right from the start
I grip the wheel so tight you couldn't tear me apart
My nerves start jumpin when I see a cop car
I was going too fast, but I didn't get far...dang!

Don't you know I'm in a sweat, I hate the cops in Carolina
But baby you can bet, if there's one it's gonna find ya.
I think I might split, but then I know I'm gonna fry
So now I'll just
Per- spire!

Well done, jango. I used to get very sleepy behind the wheel. Found out I have OSA, but now that I use a CPAP machine, I'm OK.

The last verse saves it, much like, as VH1 recently showed in "The 50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs...Ever" (or at least since 1980), a really bad song can be saved by a video showing women with superior posteriors. I can think of several better ways to show that you're "Tired," including long lectures (at school or business), or during one of those four-hour Yankee-Oriole games, or during a pre-2003 Al Gore speech. (And I'm a Yankee fan AND a Democrat saying this.)

Thanks for the comments. Sometimes I write things down just to quiet the little voices in my head.

Well done, jango. I used to get very sleepy behind the wheel. Found out I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, but now that I use a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine, I'm Outbackishly Kangaroolike.

Thanks for the clarification. I thought you might be suffering from Obnoxious Snoring Affliction. Most of the V.I.M.H. thought you needed Continuous Poking And Prodding to stop it, but one insisted you were Constantly Peeing and Pooping (that was the immature one). I'm Outta Kleenex, You're Outbackishly Kangaroolike!
