The Lyrics

Young patent assistant
She's driving home one eve
It's dark out, she's alone
Never drove a truck so big
Behind her there's a car
He's nearing her tailgate
Bad driver, he's so close now
That girl shouts in a rage:

Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!
Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!

She steps on, the pedal
Her foot is filled with lead
She just can't seem lose him
Her face is turning red
She switched lanes, he follows
So quick it makes her cry
A stop sign, she's waiting
He will not pass her, why?

Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!
Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!

She slows down to peeve him
He won't complain or shout
She gives him the finger
She wants to curse him out
She looks back to see him
She starts to shake and cough
The back of her own truck
Is what had pissed her off!

Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!
Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!
Don't drive, don't drive so
Don't drive so close to me!

Jeff R - This one left a perfect distance between objects, so I have nothing to object to...since "555" is the vote limit that's the most I can go here...
Rick D - April 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Always go for a punchline. Well done. Did something similar with "I Block the Lane"

Love the punch line!
Meriadoc - May 17, 2004 - Report this comment
Maybe I'm an old grump today, but I just couldn't see this as a five for humor. Otherwise good, tho' and nice punch line. :-)

You must live somewhere nice and sedate then Merry, cos I can sure relate to the above!

Any song that disses tailgaters gets all 5s from me!
Jeff Reuben - May 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Mari, as long as we're dissing driving tailgaters, and not the drinking tailgaters (like at football games) =)

Loved this one, Jeff. I've encountered all kinds of annoying drivers on the road (and I'm sure we all have). 5-5-5

Missed this first time around, too. Lovely one, Jeff :-)

Serafina, Phil...thanks!

(ABC3D) Hmm, the punchline kind of escaped me, though the sentiment is a definite 5.
Johnny D - August 03, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC) See above ... The punchline is the ol' dog-chasing-its-own-tail thing ... or hallucinating-being-chased-by-its-own-tail!
Agrimorfee - August 03, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3) ... a little too much of the original's key words...line 3 of verse 2 is really poor.
bobpiecheese - August 04, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3-D) At least when he used the key words, he tied them in to what he was saying...or something...you know what I mean. Nice work, Jeff!
Kristof Robertson - August 06, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3-D) Nice set up for the punch line...lotsa fun! 555
Rick C - August 06, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3D) - Good one, Jeff. Flows along niceley to the OS.
Cat - August 07, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3-D) Oh maaaan. That ending was HILARIOUS. Some of the rhymes are a bit off, but that's just a teeny, tiny complaint for a great effort.
Matthias - August 08, 2006 - Report this comment
I agree...... I never was a trucker, but was a teenaged kid getting their temps before, and this rings way too true.
Michael McVey - August 08, 2006 - Report this comment
Oh, wow, that was funny -- and so true! The ending surprised me and imo was not necessary since there really are a lot of jerks who drive like that. -- MM (meow78223)

(ABC3D) very clever ending Jeff, and a great idea for the OS too - 555
