The Lyrics

I'm driving along, then the road gets stranger
It's now a dead end, they're working on it.
I have to slow down, and avoid the danger,
Or else a cop will give me a ticket.

They say we're not sorry, but we're just tearing up the road
Though there was nothing wrong with it in the first place.
And we have closed off your road, so go find another way
Just go away, just go away right now.

These people test the limits of my temper,
They cause a huge backup with merging traffic there
I'm getting real late, not what I intended
Nothing's happening, and they just don't care.

They say we're not sorry, but we're just tearing up the road
Though there was nothing wrong with it in the first place.
And we have closed off your road, so go find another way
Just go away, just go away....

They say we're not sorry, but we're just tearing up the road
Though there was nothing wrong with it in the first place
Our roadwork never finishes, while we laugh in your face
Just go away, just go away right now.

Don't they annoy you, Don't they annoy you, Yeah they annoy you....

They say we're not sorry, but we're just tearing up the road
Though there was nothing wrong with it in the first place.
And we have closed off your road, so just go another way
Just go away, just go away....

They say we're not sorry, but we're just tearing up the road
Though there was nothing wrong with it in the first place
Our roadwork never finishes, while we laugh in your face
Just go away, just go away right now. Right now. Right now.

Yeah, it was all right, but NOT worthy of a 1-bomb like some unknown troll probably gave it.
