Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Inspired by a coworker (as usual) who has the most pathetic sounding horn in her Mercedes. (She's not like the person described in the song, only her car is)
Why'd you drive by me honkin' like that
With your weak ass horn that says "pardon me, please"
They should stop making cars like these
Why'd you drive by me honking like that

There's a Mercedes
Haulin' some bitch too fast
She's doin' her make-up
Her prime is long past
She's got a wanderin' eye and a unsteady hand
Skin stretched out like a rubber band
Her horn is soundin' like a mousey squeak
But I can't move for a sound so meek

Why'd you drive by me honkin' like that
A "Cadet Hooks" horn that's muted and light
It should make angry sounds with might
Why'd you drive by me honking like that

Why'd you drive by me honkin' like that
Hey you might stop traffic when you grow a sack
Had me laughing so hard I threw out my back
Don't you drive by me honking like that

I just can't stand it
Timid horns sound so sad
Intimidation
Let them know you are mad
Be a softhearted woman with a menacing sound
When you're laying on the horn it shakes the very ground
And you're vibrating windows a half a mile wide
When they piss themselves you can smile with pride

Why'd you drive by me honkin' like that
A Piglet-like horn that's quiet and mild
'Rather be sounding bold and wild
Why'd you drive by me honking like that

{horn honks loud enough to wake the dead}

Don't you drive by me honkin' like that
My Humvee jumped three feet from all the noise
In all, I nearly lost my poise
Don't you drive by me honking like that

Please don't drive by me honkin' like that
Hey you might stop traffic from three miles away
I am sorry I said anything, okay
Don't you drive by me honking like that
Don't you drive by me honking like that
Please don't drive by me honking like that

Awesome idea, concept and parody. There have been a lot of driving parodies on Amiright, but this one was new and original, because I don't think that I've read a parody about a car horn before. I know this OS, because I was going to parody it (It's one of the few Dolly songs that actually has a good beat to it).

I dislike the horns that are prmpted by remotes, used by drivers in parking lots walking to their cars!! suddenly a parked car goes off . . . Sir, you 've done a great job, about a very annoying subject !

Again... This was a great parody! One of your best in my opinion. The inclusion of some of the lines in the original worked pretty well in your parody such as "soft-hearted woman", and "half a mile wide". All in all great.

(ARtistry) Agreeance with Matthias here...I'm a stickler for using OS lines, but they were creatively used here. Made me think of that classic tune from the '50s "Beep Beep"...

(Artistry) Never would've thought of that one. One of the most orignal parody ideas I've ver come across, and nice ending too. 555 honks for you, man.

Really TCOP? I don't know, angry road rage type comedy one of the most original, naw, but to this song it was a perfect idea because of the tone of TOS. . .the one big problem I have here is that nothing stood out to me buddy. Your song is well paced and all, but I just didn't find the punch line(s). We all have songs like that, but it just doesn't have the fire I'm used to from you. Welcome back none-the-less, I'm sure your other rounds will be stronger.

Overall I would say this is well written and paced. Also, I liked the idea and the terms you used describing the horn.
One question I have is your choice of the word "b****". It's not that I object to that word (or any word really) per se...it's just that it threw me because your parody is about her car-horn, not her personality. To me it sounded a litte mean, as if to say...because she is female, she is necessarily a "b****". You could have used the word "gal", or "babe" and not taken away from your story line.Just a small point...

(Artistry) Good work, really liked the "wide / pride" lines.
