The Lyrics

Per'lous potholes,
All too common
Where's tax money
That we gave to fix em?
Cigarettes, beer..
Doin' what I can,
Seems as tho' the system
Needs a better plan

Bumpy Roads
Through our town
Drivin' 'round..
Shaky rattles..
hurts the saddle
Smooth 'em out,
Bumpy Roads..

Loudly clamor
When soapboxin'
Promise with speech grammar.
Come elections
We vote in the guy..
Temporary patches
Cover up his lie..

Bumpy Roads
Tires can't keep
Holdin' air.. .
I'm denouncin'..
all this bouncin',
Smooth 'em out,
Bumpy Roads..

Too much corruption,
And deal making, money kick-backs
Contractor-crook collusion
Politician favors,
'Neath tables on the side
Such acts need cleaned up
Do it election day
X your vote, rock the boat

Bumpy roads
Down the line
In your city,
And in mine
Let's retake 'em
And then remake 'em
Turn about
Bumpy roads..

Smooth 'em out
Bumpy roads..

Oh my... this one works just as good for the UK as for the US! They won't fix our potholey roads either. They won't be getting a 555 any time soon, unlike this parody, which just has :^)

Thanks, Wendy...I accidentally duplicated this..altho' the other is a shorter version...About your road problem..I never would of thought that would be the case..I've always had an image of England and other UK countries as being perfect like in a scenic painting

At least Burbank has done something about it. They also had to put speed bumps in the side roads to stop the speed freaks.
