The Lyrics

Lyrics have been changed to reflect about either negligent or forgetful parents forgetting their kid in a locked van on a summer day.
So long so long so long we’ve been shopping
So long so long so long we’re back outside

When I turned thirty-one
We had a kid, we had a van
Wasn't the thing we were cruising for
Was something tacky, something old

When time turned ten-fifteen
We were outside on the road
When I walked out with my girl
We went halfway around the mall

I actually I saw them standing there
Running for the boy inside the van
He was passed out by the sun so bright it burned
All at once I knew they'd understand
Boy inside the van
The boy forgotten in the van

When time turned twelve-thirty
We were hungry, we had lunch
When I turned around then
When the boy was locked inside

Now I just turned thirty-nine
I have a van full of kids
Still I've made that mistake twice
Cause the boy will never cry


Ah can you understand


The boy inside the van
The boy inside the van
So long so long so long
We’ve been away
So long so long so long
We’re back again

Sister cool this kid
As if he’s cooked well done
Don't leave him in this van
Like a turkey in an oven (repeat)
Boy inside the van
