The Lyrics

I missed the whole second verse and somehow still got it on! My mistake, here's the full version. All other rules apply.
Right now I know I have to
Drive away
and I will get away
From the pain of driving on the road with me
The drives I've seen to lead nowhere
And I've missed my turn
For I drive and drive till I get so burned

Once I drove on you
Now I drive off of you
Route 22 has given
I gave it all my car could give it
Take my keys and a piece of my mind
Twenty-Two, oh, Twenty-Two

Now I know I'm going to
Go insane
I'm going to go insane
This road is killing me I swear
I don't give a damn
About your crappy van
And you think it's from me but I'm loud and cussing and just mean

Once I drove on you
Now I drive off of you
Route 22 has given
I gave it all a guy could give it
Take my keys and my sense of pride
Twenty Two, oh, Twenty-Two

Don't drive me please, I do not know if it's of ease
You always made me such so late
Now I'm driving on I-78!
Twenty-Two (x4)
Drive me baby, Twenty-Two (x2)
Twenty-Two (x3)

(Car speeds up, crashes as song fades)

Whoever designed Route 22 -- at least, the New Jersey portion of it, a.k.a. the Blue Star Memorial Highway but we call it other, less printable things -- is playing poker with Walter O'Malley, Errol Flynn and Richard Nixon now. (And losing: Even in hell, those guys cheat.) Route 22 and "Tainted Love": Two things we should ALL despise, although put Rihanna on either and I could live with it. A five for merely surviving that road.

Mike, I live in the Valley, and this section of the Thruway... technical for Rt. 22, is a certified, guaranteed POS. Whoever designed needs to be drug out in the middle of it and ran over by an 18-wheeler. 5's for me 1's for Rt. 22.
