The Lyrics

Traffic jams suck! Rush hour is the worst! So let's take a trip through the mind of a man stuck in traffic...
Chorus: Oh! Sittin’ in our cars
A million years to wait
A never ending state, oh
Hear cars honk and blow
But my position stays
And I have a date!

Verse 1: Let’s go!
Yeah, I’m hollerin’ now
It’s like I ain’t seen nothin’ like this in a while
I’ll try to play some songs on several different dials
Cuz I got ten thousand cars in front of me for miles
So when you’re sittin’ still honkin’ like beep beep beep
Think it’s like some young guys in front just fell asleep
I cry teardrops, over traffic I weep
I only see things like a Ford and a Chevy and Jeep
Drove by a heavy old creep
So damn static, it’s traumatic
I’m planning therapy weeks
Confronting traffics major, I want a car that does leaps
People drive cars just to get an automobile heap
Look I’m just a writer in a Mazda like others I un-leash
Where the heck’s the front of this heap? Sheesh!
I’m just a guy in jams that no one cares about
So when you laugh when you pass me know I’ll cuss you out!

Chorus: Oh! Sittin’ in our cars
A million cars stand still
This traffic I would kill, oh
That lane inches close
But my lane never will
Think I need my pills!

Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!
Honk, honk, honk, honk…

Verse 2: Yeah, I’m needin’ some gas
When I left didn’t fill it cuz it was full of gas
I wish I could pass
Cuz one day I even missed my Chemistry and Math class
I even done some insult stuff and was soaking with sass
They say the traffic is the root of the evilest lass
And have you ever been so desperate you drove in the grass?
Ass! Now this traffic accumulates mass, fast
It feels like a long time sitting here
Is the day almost over? It’s not clear
One day I have a dream there’ll be no traffic
But now I’m not going nowhere, this spot here
I know that maybe someday it will disappear
Maybe just change a car into a fast jet, Lear
Every car’s a horn that people blare right out
But I haven’t even moved, so you’ll hear me shout

Chorus: Oh! Sittin’ in our cars
A million days it seems
This traffic haunts my dreams, oh
That side comes and goes
Here stagnant reigns supreme
It’s to that extreme!

Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep!

Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep! (Traffic)
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep! (Makes me car sick)
Honk, honk, honk, honk, beep! (Let’s go!)

Chorus: Oh! Sittin’ in our cars
‘Bout every day at five
Don’t know how we survive, oh
These jams come and go
But as sure as I drive
They somehow revive!

I'm glad I live in a small town!

As a New Yorker I can support this. Enjoyed your take on the song Blayde, but especially the first verse: 'beep/asleep/weep/Jeep'

Another tough song. Like Glen I can relate to this song (in the DC/Metro area). Funny lines, and some nice internal rhyming

(SOTM) Tinie Tempah raps too fast and his accent a bit too undecipherable to really check if your pacing's tight enough, but it seemed to scan right. Definitely well written, and I've always been a sucker for traffic-related parodies (which is weird seeing as how I don't have my license yet), so this gets a 555 from me!

Once again (Damn!) I agree with T-Cop. I was trying to follow along with Tinsy-Weensy or whatever the heck his name is but he was rapping far too fast for me to catch up but I never had to deal with traffic jams as much as I do now that I live in Orlando. I swear it's a massive pain in the butt and this was a great tribute to an extreme everyday annoyance.

Before I clicked play, I realized I never heard the rest of this song...only the chorus. So the speed was something I wasn't ready for...but you seemed to hit the pacing pretty well. And your choruses were really well done too. NIce work!

SOTM...big props for tackling such a hard OS, and you did a great job whining about one of my major pet peeves!
