The Lyrics

We're on the road now, heading out
To our vacation by the sea
And the children in the back
Look around at the cars and the fields and the sky
But I know what's coming soon

And the children in the back
Play some games, sing a song, read a bit, have a snack
Waiting for our destination
It's still a ways away

We saw a treehouse on the outskirts of a farm
The children were excited and they said they want one too
Try to keep them occupied, but I'm
Waiting for the moment that I know is upcoming

And the children start to shout
Are we there, are we there, are we there, are we there
Have we reached our destination
We're ready to get out

I hope the summer heat
Will put the children all to sleep
I hope the summer heat
Will put them all asleep, so I'll get some peace

I'm piloting the car more and more erratic
Power poles are flashing by as I step on the gas
Got to make it there in a hurry or I might go insane
Screaming voices in my brain

And the children holler out
Are we there, are we there, are we there, are we there
We've been in this car too long
And the children never stop
Are we there, are we there, are we there, are we there
Have we reached our destination
We're ready to get out

I compared your song with the Os and you did a fine job. I personally hate the idea of being stuck inside a car with kids constantly complaining about when the trip will end, so the song was more horror than comedy for me. Still, I can see the effort placed in the song, and it also appears you may have actually faced a car trip or two with children in tow. So I do award you 555 for your parody. Kim.

(Summertime) You made pre-1990 Michael Stipe sound comprehensible with an OS and parody idea I don't think have been done before!

Great work here Rex, and I think you've arrived!

(SB) you had me with the title, Rex - I've just spent the last 5 days on the road with my 3 kids, so this is very timely indeed - although "how much further?" has taken the upper hand over "are we there yet?"
