The Lyrics

This song is about a drunk driver getting his license back, I kept the British spelling for some reason.
Hey dude, thought you were the one who tried to run me away.
Oh, dude, wasn't you the one who don't want me to stay?
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you,

Got a licence to drive
And you know I'm going straight for your ass.
(Got a licence to drive)
Got a licence to drive
I'll try to run you to death.
(Got a licence to drive)
Licence to drive.

Hey dude, think you need a friend to mow you to death?
Yes you do ( to your death).
Oh dude, now you can depend on me to make things wrong (things wrong)
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you,

Got a licence to drive
And you know I'm going straight for your ass.
(Got a licence to drive)
Got a licence to drive
I'll try to run you to death.
(Got a licence to drive)
Licence to drive.

Say that somebody tries to make a move to save you
In the blink of an eye, I'll be there too.
And they better know why I'm gonna maim them all
Till their bodies thuds
Till their bodies thuds
Till their bodies thuds

Got a licence to drive
And you know I'm going straight for your ass.
(Got a licence to drive)
Got a licence to drive
I'll try to run you to death.
(Got a licence to drive)
Licence to drive.

(ABC3) Very few word changes, not at all creative IMHO. Sorry Max, but I have seen better from you.

(ABC3L) Another great OS in the L round. Coming up with a vote for this wasn't particulalry easy, but I arrived at a 453. Let me explain: Pacing is very good, though off in places. 5 for humor because "And you know I'm going straight for your ass.", in the satirical context (at least, that's what I'm hoping this was), was funny, as was "..mow you to death." However, the 3 in overall is due to lifting entirely too much from TOS; the verses are nearly verbatim. Work on getting your rhymes as TOS does; while singable, the "all/thuds" and "ass/death" rhyme couplets are off. I would have like to have seen the intro vocals parodied as well.

In the case of a drunk or stoned driver, a license to drive IS a license to kill. Good work.----MM
