The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to the "young at heart"! I really want to make a music video of this song, but I need to find an old guy to do stunts on his scooter, and a senior's mobile home park that'll let me shoot on location, and somehow I doubt I can afford the insurance.
Another quiet night in the senior's park, hey!
And I'm racing my scooter well after dark, no!
I get pulled over, by a golf cart
Some rent-a-cops callin' me an old fart again!

Go on and write me up for doing 25
Tell my children, tattle to my wife
Bed without supper and all that jive
I can't drive – 5!
Oh no! Uh!

So they took me down to see the park managers, hey!
I'm bossed around by kids, ain't that a curse?
She said “That's a big risk for someone your age –
Wouldn't you be happier back in your cage?”
I said “No, oh no!” Hell no!

Write me up for doing 25
Tell my children, tattle to my wife
Bed without supper and all that jive
I can't drive – 5!
Oh yeah!

I can't drive 5! (four times)
Ow! (solo)

Well I might be old, but hey I'm still alive
And who the heck decided the speed limit's 5?
What's with those flat speed bumps, they don't slow me down
Huh – I hit them at full speed and then, I leave the ground!

Go on and write me up for doing 25
Tell my children, tattle to my wife
Bed without supper and all that jive
I can't drive – 5!

No, no, no, I can't drive... (I can't drive 5!)
I can't drive... (I can't drive 5!)
I can't drive 5!

The pacing is probably off, so I'll give it 3s, though.

I love the concept! Though some of the pacing's off, I'll give you fives anyway. It was definitely a fun read.

Wow! I just love the original song just as much as I love this one, I am currently planning on a parody of this song in the near future so keep an eye out for that, but as for my vote 5,5,5!! :)

By this song, I did not mean this parody, I meant the original song that it parodies (I can't drive 55) Sorry if anyone got confused... :-(

I don't think the pacing is off...as evidence, let me enter a video of me singing my song in public: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj4BjAKDwZo
