The Lyrics

Hoping for a Good year...
You make me swerve and you rattle my truck
Too much air and not enough luck
I risked my neck, oh what the heck
Drove this load on eight balding tires

I learned to love drivin' the big highway
But I do my truck maint'nance my way
Used all the tread, the rubber's shed
Drove this load on eight balding tires

No brakin' baby, wooo,,,it feels bad
Hold on baby, gonna have a blowout on this bumpy road
My wheel, see steel
Look back there behind us watch it peel, peel, peel

I cut those corners when the price is steep
Buy discount radials cause I'm really cheap
Now don't you quiver, let's go deliver
Drive this load on eight balding tires

(Screeching tire solos, burning rubber on a piano)

Drove this load on eight balding tires

Blowout Fives for this one Rick - I'd love to hear it recorded. LOL
Jan Unwin - February 17, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL This brought back memories. Years ago, the old car I drove actually had wires sticking out of the tires. And mushrooms grew on the floor in the back. 5-5-5

This parody's got traction. 5's

Bringing back baaaad memories for me - last summer my pick-up blew 4 tires in 10 days! The Auto Club was getting to know me on a first name basis...

Glad I wasn't tired when I read this. I got much more out of it on fresh tread. Well done, Rick.

Rick D - See if you can use some of these "Five's" to patch up those tires. Nice job!
Diva - February 19, 2004 - Report this comment
You are so fun to read, Rick! Great work!
Meriadoc - May 22, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) Much better choice! :-)

(ABC) A wheely good job here, Rick. 5's - didn't know I had already voted in February, must have been at the Library - I can see it's just before I got this PC. I see the five's I just put up got counted. Well, it's worthy of a double-vote, as long as it wasn't purposely done.

(ABC) You are making this harder than it has to be ! 555 :) Funny stuff, I could picture ol' Jerry Lee toolin' down the highway in big ol' Peterbilt semi to this! :D

You must drive in the same areas I do Rick! Good one!

Goodness, gracious - rubber's on fire! Heh heh. Is this all a big sexual double-entendre, or am I reading it wrong?
Jeff Reuben - May 27, 2004 - Report this comment
It looks like this will end up #2 or #3 on my list...excellent song Never would have thought of that title...and it's brilliant.

Very nice. And Spaff: it's true that smut is in the eye of the beholder, but I don't think this was supposed to be dirty.
Rick D - May 29, 2004 - Report this comment
No, mine is much cleaner than the original. When Jerry Lee sang "Baaay-beee", he really meant it.
Claude Prez - May 29, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm embarrassed how many of these great "E" songs I've never commented on. Great work.
