The Lyrics

I know it's an old joke..but good fodder for a spoof
Too late, I noticed
That sign with an arrow
Wrong way mistake
I'm too smashed to make
A "U turn" so narrow
Behind me, the siren,
I hear it whine
My brain waves supply
This quick alibi..
"One Way At A Time"

One Way At A Time, Dear Trooper, (Dear Trooper)
I'm only goin' one way..
Your sharp eyes should see
This car wasn't built
To travel two ways..
Just drivin' one-way, Dear Trooper,
On the right side, not speeding, no crime
I strive to survive,
So, I always drive
One Way At A Time

The Trooper's not buyin'
The excuse I recite
I smell like a bar,
He goes to his car,
.My fingers cross tight..
Brings his breathalyzer,
And says "Walk this line!"
I fall down and fail..
I'm hauled off to jail
One Way At A Time !

One Way At A Time, Your Honor, (Your Honor)
I saw that sign on display
But, in Drivers Ed
No instructor said
It wasn't okay
Obeyed the law, Your Honor
I was driving with one way in mind
His gavel slams down,
He says with a frown,
"Son, you're doin' time!"
