The Lyrics

When I first head the original song it was snowin' and my twisted mind took it from there . . .
It was a miserable day, the snow beat down
I had tire chains on, I was drivin'
The flakes flew by, me and Zeb were frettin'
Then we were blown away, thought we was dyin'

Yeah drivin' down the street
That never would occoured to me
The wind begin to scream, we went sideways, then indeed
We were skidin' down the street

The last three days, the snow was unstoppable
So I'd put the peddle down, to make some time
We hit a patch of ice
And smacked a concrete barrier
Knocked the cruise control, up between my eyes

Yeah slidin' down the street
Thought that we were dead meat
We messed all over the seats
'Cause we were skidin' down the street

We slid on, as the sky grew dark
We crawled out the door
Maybe there's a gas staition, down this road
To clean out our drawers

Yeah slidin' down the street
Thought that we were dead meat
We messed all over the seats
'Cause we were skidin' down the street
