Parody Song Title:

"Who Will Pay The Toll?"

Parody Written by:

David Pratter

The Lyrics

This song is about driving on large highways and turnpikes (Especially Interstate 90 on the eastern part of the country) and having to pay a toll everywhere you travel!
Drivin' along the highway here, honestly
We're traveling the country, but this sure isn't free
There's this toll miles ahead we're coming close
It's surely coming up - there ain't nothing for free!

Another time we pay, another large highway
They're saying stop ahead, you know the tollbooths
If we drive along here still, but

Who will pay the toll, when it comes to three dollars now?
Who, who, will pay the toll, after all my cash is all gone now?
Who will pay the toll, if we just don't have cash now?

We try drive on, try to get through, try to pay them
They prosecute those driving by checking on your plate number
Another day, another dollar, another toll that we pass,
Where you gotta pay the fare

So we scrounge through our wallets,
Get every spare little cent, as we have to pay
We have to help out as friends
We're so worried about saving our souls
Afraid we can't pay the toll, we always have to chip in but

Who will pay the toll, when it comes to three dollars now?
Who, who, who will pay the toll?
After all those miles that we drove, boy!
And who will pay the tolls, if you can't pay your own?

We are driving, we are striving,
We got that gasoline, but it doesn't pay the tolls
There are attendants on guard, and there are laws you break
So you bargain with the devil, that you just can't pay now today, say
That you want to get some cash tomorrow,
Take that money and run but it was

Just one of those times you were broke,
Those times you got to call,
Get out on those highways, yeah and bust your butts

Who will pay the toll, when it comes to this highway?
Who will pay the toll, after all those fines that you had boy?
Who will pay the toll, if you can't on your own?
I know this may not completely follow the pacing very well, but it was the latest I could think of. Please drop comments below and let me know how you like this one! In addition, please click on this link and read my other parodies, and leave comments on them as well! I have gotten plenty so far on two parodies - "Will I Have Money Tomorrow?" and "This Land Is My Land", but I want people to vote on pacing, funiness, and overall rating AND leave comments with honest opinions on ALL MY PARODIES! And who knows - maybe I will submit a recording of one of them!
