The Lyrics

Father, puh-leeze, invest in maps, the easy path -
We must've somehow missed
We're like in Nowhere, Idaho

Father, puh-leeze, invest in Perls, or other eyewear
And maybe if you did
You would have seen the exit

This is what I get, This is what I get
This is what I get, when I miss the bus

Father, Puh-leeze, I'm gonna miss my class, let's hurry up
We're running out of gas, we should ask for directions

This is what I get, This is what I get
This is what I get, when I miss the bus

Please just admit it Dad, we're lost somewhere, we're lost somewhere
Please just admit it Dad, we're lost somewhere, we're lost somewhere

Just admit it, Dad, and call for help, and call for help

4-5-5 "This is what I get, when I miss the bus" is PERFECT!! I always look at other people's songs when I'm about to use the originial. I wasn't sure how many Radiohead parodies I was going to find. I'm so glad I found this one. I had trouble with a little bit of the pacing in the first stanza...I would have used "maps" where "path" was. Congrats!! A really good effort to a great song.

Funny, No offense, but I didn't understand what you were saying when you made the recording.
