The Lyrics

What the hay
Where'd the road go
Traffic can't flow
It's your dime

And what man pays if a hole grows,
If your road blows
Like a mine?

Who will pay to put up signs
As your car flies
Someone's dime

And then one day
when your car dies in a hole size
Of all time

You'll rue the day
When the roads beat
To the point your
Car won't start

And why are they
when my seals leak
And my shocks squeak
Out the part

Can't find at wal-mart

Who will pay if the roads close
Cause the road blows
Not my dime

And why can't they get the back hoes
Fix the pot holes
For a dime

This blows. It's a crime
Back hoes. Just in time

I had to read this just to see how you actually wrote lyrics to an Enya song. It definitely matches the pacing (aside from the unintelligible chanting, which is probably in Latin or something). I didn't quite understand the song itself though.

I had a feeling that it was that song by Enya...brings a tear to my eye (not your song). Thanks for puting that one on, Guy!
