The Lyrics

You head to vacation, but you think you are lost
You look at the streets, and your eyes appear glossed
You're getting impatient, start to pray
Your GPS system turns to gray
You have no clue what road your on

You stop at a store to ask what way to go
They look funny at you and say they don't know
Are you in the right city, losing time
You've long ago lost your piece of mind
And it seems like you're all alone

Cause you went the wrong way
You're energy's down
You can't muster much but an over-sized frown
You battery's low
and your cell phone's died
You drive for a while, then your whole day is fried
You went the wrong way
Yes you went for a ride
You want to get out but you don't see man kind
You went the wrong way
You went the wrong way

You look at a map, to your dismay
It says somehow you're in Kentuck-ay
And you were heading toward New York

You went the wrong way
You're white as a ghost
You're in the mid-west, when you aimed for the coast
What city - don't know
You just want to cry
You think for awhile, how'd you go for this ride
You went the wrong way
The farmers won't lie
They're staring you down and they laugh at your sight
You went the wrong way

(Oh.. Maps are great..)

In downtown Frankfurt you go for a drink
As you get your car checked on
It's time to be heading back and you know
That at least you'll get back home
Or am I wrong---yeah

So whats with the Palm Trees, Is that GaGa I see
Oh not again
You see Britney Spears and you say woah-is-me

Cause you went the wrong way
You feel like a clown
Your homes in the East, but your in Cali now
You say what the hell
You're joking now right?
You try to wake up and get pinched 12 times
You went the wrong way
Your boss will be hyped
And now you must feel, not so bright
You went the wrong way
You went the wrong way

Went the wrong way
Went the wrong way
Went the wrong way...
