The Lyrics

DKTOS? Sound file here. Permit me a brief rant. There are very few things that make my skin crawl more than the start of tourist season. Each year, drivers from every state come to VA to visit the colonial/historical areas, go to the local amusment parks, and try to run down the locals with thier vehicles, which always seem to be overpacked minivans that have inoperable turn signals.
~~"Wrong Way"~~

Annie's on the road
But she'll never make it home
She's talking on the phone
Driving the wrong way

You'd be amazed
There's a guardrail she just grazed
And she isn't even fazed
Drives the wrong way

She zooms along so oblivious
Doesn't notice what is obvious
Traffic clears when they see this kid
And she's puttin' on her makeup
And drives with one hand!

She missed a wreck
Maybe by an inch
It's because this stupid b*tch
Drives the wrong way!

Wheels in the grass
And her foot is in the gas
She is surely gonna crash
Drivin' the wrong way!

The only driver's ed that she's ever had
Is, well nothing at all but she thinks she's not that bad
You think that's funny? wait 'til you see her on the street
Then you'd see she's drivin' blind - and your ass is dead meat!

Doesn't read the signs
Steering with her thighs
Eating lunch it's no surprise
That's the wrong way!

She ran a light
Never caught her sight
Does she know her left from right?
Goes the wrong way!

But in VA -
- it's a normal day
Where the tourists will kill ya
Oh no!
This IS all true -
- and there's nothing we can do
Driving crimes in America
Won't stop!

[solo]

She zooms along still oblivious
Doesn't notice what is obvious
All traffic clears when they see this kid
As she puts on more makeup
And reads her road map!

Annie drove that way
'til she hit a Chevrolet
Head on (all were okay)
Still that's the wrong way

Insurance hiked
Don't matter if she likes it - or not
Because she really drove the wrong way!

Though now she's gone I still hold my breath
There's plenty more tourists
Oh no!
These guys are driving like they want us dead
Who declared open season?
Are we the hunted?

Sublime effort! Great topic, but I've really got to give you props for your pacing. This was great. 555

555. Reminds me of when I got rear-ended by a 20-year old girl at a stop light while she was putting lipstick on.

Over here it's considered almost anti-feministic to imply that some women can't drive, put on make up and sort their handbags at the same time. Thank God the world will run out of oil and gas in 20-30 years! :-)

This was definitely written in the right way...5's

I haven't witness this living in Ohio... I mean who the hell visits Ohio, but I can picture this because I was.... I was.... The cause of a hit and run, by accident of course, but still.... Uhm.... 555 driving tickets.

You think VA is bad, try CO or NM ski resorts in the winter, or FL any time of year, esp. summer, winter, spring break. Change "Annie" to "Canadian doing 20mph in fast lane" or "drunk kids from MIch. hanging out windows puking", or.... lots of good follow-ups if you want them... DKTOS, but those who do say pacing's good, so 555.

Wow, thanks Pat, Alvin, Ravyn Rant, Dee, Peter, AFW, Step-chan, Matthias, TT and Larry.

Alvin: You're welcome.

Ravyn Rant: A bit surprised (pleasantly, that is) you know or d/l TOS. Thanks, I work hard on that.

Dee: Sorry to hear that. I hope she stopped and had insurance, and, most importantly, you weren't hurt.

Peter: Lol. I'm not worried about the planet running out of oil - I can barely afford it now.

Matthias: Unfortunately, I visit Ohio to see my mother in law. What a fun trip that will be this year.

Tommy Tourist: VA is bad for other reasons. Aside from tourists from every (and I do mean every) state bringing their bad driving skills here, we also have a large number of military and elderly in the area, all of whom got their licenses at K-Mart. Add into the mix VDOTs inability to do anything right (I-64 has been under construction for 20 years now) and you have a recipe for disaster.

You have'nt seen tourists who can't drive until you've been to eastern oklahoma. As a for instance: last weekend i had gone driving around one the lakes near where i live, and ended up behind an out of state lexus that 1: could not stay in the right lane 2: could not hold a constant speed and 3: stopped ten feet away from a stop sign which left me stopped on a set of railroad tracks for five minutes while they checked a roadmap.

haha that part about driving with her thighs is awesome i can just picture some huge chick eating a big mac while driving with her thighs. and i can relate with crappy drivers ...in my town its the suv and minivan moms that are to be feared. Not to mention the obligatory elderly in their buicks and toyota carollas. 555 all the way!!!

You should have seen how they drive the tour bus in China.

Nothing gets my goat more than seeing driving with the phone on their ear. Contest-wise, the age of this parody shows in the blips of pacing and slight repetition. This was fun and breezy though, matching the OS tone to a T.

(ABC) This may be seven years old but it's still quality work. I'm always a sucker for driving-related parodies, and this one really hit the spot. 555!

I'm from Toledo (Ohio, not Spain) and last year there were, sadly, quite a few accidents caused by wrong way driving on the highway...now that I've brought the entire mood down, I think this parody was absolutely hilarious! A lot of funny lines and the pacing was spot on! Great work!

(ABC) The song maybe "Wrong Way", but you did this the RIGHT WAY! LOL! Really funny, and even though it's 7 years old, it has major staying power.
