The Lyrics

For those of you who are lucky enough never to have encountered the London orbital motorway: the M25 is the one that runs all the way round our capital city at a distance of about 20 miles or so.
Spoken}"Hey, you all want to go round the M25?
Well, come on"!

"Welcome to 'The Car Park'!"

Well, the Dartford tun-
Nel is junction one
On the M25
And exit twenty-four
Is for Potter's Bar
On the M25
Well you never damn know
How the traffic will flow
On the M25
As around you can go
Sometimes it's fast,
And sometime it's slow
When you drive
Round the M25

So come and drive. Come and drive
Round the M25
So come and drive. Come and drive
Round the motorway, round the motorway
Round the M25
Round the motorway, round the motorway
Round the M25

At the junction fourteen,
Folks get really mean
On the M25
From there to thirteen,
Where roadworks have been
They're for Terminal Five
There's a guy behind
Sitting right on my a**, sayin'
Pull over, man
Let me past, let me past
Don't mess me 'round,
'cause I wanna go FAST!
When I drive
Round the M25

{Repeat Chorus}

Well it always goes slow
As you go past Heathrow
Round the M25,
You can go near to Wo-
King and Leatherhead
(Where is that? I dunno)
As you drive
Round the M25

{Repeat Chorus}

{Spoken} "Come on, boys. Was that our exit?
Are we nearly there yet?"

Come and drive. Come and drive

Thanks Kristof, Ric & Stuart - you won't be surprised to learn I wrote this while sitting on the M25 in the jam up to the roadworks at J13...

Remarkably good pacing, but not funny at all.

I found this using the random button. Good work with a good sub Phil. I don't subscribe to the previous comment, given the subject matter, you did quite well with it. Footnote, I'm from the antipodes and all the lyrics make perfect sense to me.

Thanks, Pippin - say, you've been doing a lot of random browsing recently.. I'm actually quite tempted to play this one, now you've brought it to my attention :-)
