The Lyrics

Can a parody that contains most of the original song's words force the original song's own lyrics to spoof themselves in an entertaining way? Let's find out ... this is an experiment!
( instrumental intro )

She comes down
(The) Spaulding Turnpike

On a dark, flat ramp she strides

Rolls a Goodyear she named Wild-Tire
Rubber whirlin' by her side

On a cold New Hampshire night

( instrumental riff )

Oh they say
She died one winter

When she hit a huge pothole

And the Goodyear she named Wild-Tire
Busted off and rolled

In a blizzard's freezing cold

She ran calling WILD-TIRE!
She ran calling WILD-TIRE!
She ran calling WI-I-I-I,I-I-I-I,I,ILD-TIRE!

( instrumental bridge )

By the side of the road I waited
But there nev-er came a tow

There's been a white-out poundin' my car windows now
With mixed ice, sleet, and snow

She's coming for me, I know

And on Wild-Tires we're both gonna go!

We'll be riding WILD-TIRES!
We'll be riding WILD-TIRES!
We'll be riding WI-I-I-I,I-I-I-I,I,ILD-TIRES (On WILD-TIRES --- )

( --- we're gonna ride!)

(We're gonna leeee-eeeeave plow-trucks in the sand!) (WILD-TIRES!)

(Scare these state cops, right on outta their minds --- )

( --- riding WI-I-I-I,I-I-I-I,I,ILD-TIRES!) (WILD-TIRES!)

( instrumental fade )

I've heard of the song, but never heard it. I do, however, think it's very good, 555.

I don't know the original song, but that newspaper columnist got many votes for it as worst song. Your parody is a good play on words.
