The Lyrics

I have a few things to say about the makeup of this song:"Gemini 1 and 2" are based on my girlfriend Nadia and her twin sister. Their family actually owns an Aerostar. "Ebony559" is based on my ex-girlfriend Chandra. She actually owns a (currently nonfunctional) 1950 pickup truck. Lastly, I want to restore a 1960s-vintage Ford or Dodge van.
(Yeah, Gemini 1 and Gemini 2, this here's the Disco Duck, Huh... my God, it's clean clear to Flagtown...Listen girls...looks like we've got ourselves a CONVOY!
It was the dark o' the moon, the 8th of June
With a '64 Dodge A-100 window van from Eugene, OR, a '90 Aerostar from the same place and an old grey Voyager-K coming from the Frisco Bay
We was loaded for bear on One-Oh-One, 'bout a mile out of Monterey Bay
"Said Gemini 1, this here's the Disco Duck, and I'm gonna throw the hammer down
(CHORUS)
Cause we've got a minivan convoy, runnin' through the night
Yeah, we got a minivan convoy, ain't it a beautiful sight
Come on, join our convoy, across the USA
(Convoy, convoy, convoy!)
By the time we got into Shakeytown, we had 85 rigs in all
But there's a roadblock on the cloverleaf, and them cops were wall to wall
They even had a bear-in-the-air
I said "Gemini 1-2 and NicMo, this here's Disco Duck, and we're about to go hunting bear!
(CHORUS)
Well, we rolled down the Continental Divide like barrels over Niagara
When I burned our Ivy League scholarships, I felt like I had taken Viagra
By the time we hit Detroit City, the law was gettin' smart
They brought in some reinforcement, the Michigan National Guard
There were armored cars, Humvees and tanks, and rigs of every size
Them Quik-Sacks were full cops, and choppers filled the skies
Well, we shot the line, went for broke
With 401 minivans, countless cars of all vintages and a gorgeous young lady in a 1950 International truck.
(Disco Duck, this is Ebony559. Listen, you want to get together at Margate?)
Well, we laid a strip for the Jersey Shore, and there we found the bridge, but we ain't gonna pay no toll
So we watched Ebony559 crash the gate doin' 98
and in the gate, the old truck left a hole
She yelled "Now let this Convoy roll!"
(CHORUS)
(Note: "Disco Duck", "Gemini 1", Gemini 2", "NicMo, and "Ebony559" are not real CB handles to the author's knowledge, nor do they have any real meaning to the author. For more, visit www.darrellwilhe.aw screw it!
