The Lyrics

Yes, I'm churning out parodies out the wazoo! This is for Artistry. Inspired by Jeff Reuben's 'Don't Drive So Close To Me' and 'Are We There Yet?'. Oh, and 'Paris'' is pronounced 'Par-ee'.
It's time for a break and
I feel like gay Paris
I tell the family
Michelle, Doug, Mark and Bree
I start up the Prado
Pretty soon we depart
I'm dreading the high-pitched squeling
Of the kids when they start:

They say, they say 'Are'
They say 'Are we there yet?'
They beg, they plead 'Are'
They scream 'Are we there yet?'

They drive me bananas
You know how kids do that
They're fine at home or elsewhere
But in the car - what brats!
'I Spy' and such nonsense
Get on my fragile nerves
Don't matter if we're stopped
Or driving around a curve

They say, they whinge 'Are'
They yell 'Are we there yet?'
I say, 'Don't say that'
Don't say 'Are we there yet?'

We get to the airport
I say 'Don't say a word'
They don't so I'm happy
Just like a mockingbird
I get first-class tickets
And we get on the plane
But then what should happen?
The whole thing starts again:

They say, again 'Are'
Once more 'Are we there yet?'
I say, I say 'No'
I say 'We aren't there yet!'

(instrumental break)

They say, they beg 'Are'
They plead 'Are we there yet'
I say, I scream 'No!'
I yell 'We're not there yet!'

(Repeat to fade)
Bree is a girl's name, right?

Genius, bobpie! This is up there with your best stuff. Perfect OS to choose, loved the repetitivemess of the chorus, and the ending was cool...I'd almost believe you were a dad. Bravo, dude. 555+

Sorry to break the streak of 5's and all. It was awesome pacing, and it was kind of amusing though. Good work man!

I liked it, and, at least on "Desperate Housewives," Bree is a feminine name. Never been a big Marica Cross fan, though. Or Felicity Huffman, or Nicolette Sheridan. Teri Hatcher's muh girl on that show. Eva Longoria makes a very nice Roger Maris to Teri's Mickey Mantle.

(Artistry) Paris being pronounced as par-ee so you know a little French eh? Very creative here, Conq, likely to make my top 5 for this round.

(Artistry) Yep, this is fab, bobpie...for such a young dude, you've got a dad's insight down pat. Super!

(Artistry) Nice job, dude! As a Midwesterner, I'm certainly no stranger to long drives. Argh. But is it weird that when I first saw the phrase "gay Paris," my first thought was, "Um, she isn't gay at all..." The media is messing with my mind!!

(ABC4) although the layout of the choruses made me work a bit, when the pacing did click, it was like bells ringing - genius stuff bobpie - as kristof said, one of your best - your stuff is definitely on the up - 555
