The Lyrics

In accordance with Scathe's article here: http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php?action=sendtopic;topic=11913.0 I submit this little tale of tow truck woe.
Park in the yellow get towed
Park in the yellow get towed

Park in the yellow get towed
Park in the yellow get towed

Claim you won't park here
No more
Just stopped to see a friend
Your car's impounded
For sure
And my bill
Will leave you sore
Three hundred bucks or more

If I see
You can bet
You can bet
Your car gets towed
Can't you read?
Here it says
You park in the yellow get towed

We charge jacked up prices
I know
You'll think we're demon spore
If you can't pay with cash
Oh boy
Car will be destroyed
We'll swat it like a fly

Subaru or a 'vette
Mercedes or new Rolls Royce
I'll hook up
Got no choice
You park in the yellow get towed

I come by
Every day
Waiting for more cars to load
They can sue
Judge will say
You park in the yellow get towed

I'm back on track
I'm in the black again
I'm back on track
I'm in the black again

You want your
Honda Accord
But I've got bills to pay
My kids aren't hungry
No more
Have a shopping spree galore
We'll buy out the whole store

I will not
Work next week
Cause I've reached a new plateau
I can't lose
No lotto
You park in the yellow get towed

I'll get rich - er each day
My bizness
Will never slow
I have found
My goldmine
You park in the yellow get towed

Life is good
Got my pot
At the end of my rainbow
Can't argue
With the law
You park in the yellow get towed

Incidentally, I never had my car towed. I did receive a call from a tow/salvage company two years after my Honda scooter was stolen. Being that it cost $650 brand new and was at the time 6 or 7 years old AND stripped of all decency (I think all they recovered was the scooter frame), I declined their offer for me to pay $600.00 to get it back. Their hefty fee was supposedly because they had kept it in their yard for a month before contacting me. Whatever...
