The Lyrics

Stalled again, on that elevated highway,
with big crazy semis on both my sides
Austin traffic stretching far up north
We're stuck on I-35

Rolling down the road, is that a cop?
Cancel that appointment, baby
It's gonna be start 'n stop

We're gonna sit here till we can't stand it no more

From Manchac', to MoPac,
From ol' SoCo, to the Airport,

Everybody's, so unhappy
'Cause we're all stuck a-wasting our time
Looks liked we missed another date,

I hate the Interstate! (We hate it!)
I hate the Interstate! (We hate it!)
We hate it!

Look at that billboard.
Inhale those fumes
Look out for that crazy drunken Ford
'cause there ain't enough room
Look at this traffic, man
Ain't nothin' like this nowhere

Research Boulevard (Can't Exit!)
MLK Boulevard (Can't Exit!)
Ben White Boulevard (Can't Exit!)
Sixth Street (Can't Exit! Can't Exit!)
I hate this Interstate!

I hate this Interstate!
(We hate it!)
I hate the Interstate!
(We hate it!)
I hate our Interstate!
(We hate it!)

so true, so true! I'm going to the Old Pecan Street festival this weekend and getting to it is going to be murder. Austin traffic is some of the most annoying I've ever experienced.
