The Lyrics

When I wake up, yeah, I'm headin' for DC
The journey from Detroit, a bit too far for me
When you get up, yeah, you'll hear it on TV
I'm gonna leave the jet and take a car, you'll see

If I get there, yes, I plan to make my plea
I'm gonna try to save the auto industry
A hybrid was our choice, no guzzlin' SUV
I'm gonna play the fool who begs on bended knee

Yes, I will ride five hundred miles
And I will ride, say, forty more
Just to be the man who rode five-forty miles
'Cause I am such a whore

When I'm working, yes, I know I make mistakes
I'm hopin' that the car we're takin' has good brakes
And if the car breaks down, there'll be some hell to pay
I'll be countin' every minute on the way

If I get there, yeah, I plan to make my case
I'm gonna try to solve the problems we all face
And if I don't win, well, I know I'll face disgrace
Might even be the man who's bound to be replaced

Yes, I will ride five hundred miles
And I will ride, say, forty more
Just to be the man who rode five-forty miles
'Cause I am such a whore

Don't feel lonely, no, I have some company
The other CEO's who share my misery
Though we're squirmin', yes, we hope for victory
Hope to dash the threat of bankruptcy

Yes, I will ride five hundred miles
And I will ride, say, forty more
Just to be the man who rode five-forty miles
'Cause I am such a whore

Very up to date on the news - a silly song on about a silly ride - well done.
