The Lyrics

My mother went to have her driver's license renewed but she was turned away. She thought she was a month early, but her license was still good for 13 months!
Every several years, you know/To the BMV we go,
To get ourselves a driver’s license
And you better not be late/no, you must not hesitate/then you can avoid a crisis
There are hours posted clear/so you can do your business here
/And I doubt they ever make exception
Gotta bring the stuff you need/they won’t listen to you plead
/You just might face a sound rejection!

So you’ll be
Caught without a license (it’s too late)/Caught without a license (no debate)
I don’t have a license (what a shame)/Couldn’t get my license (I’m to blame!)

So I knew the time drew near/then I got my stuff in gear/and got a ride down to the office
Had to wait there for a while/and I tried to keep a smile
/When I saw the clerk was not a novice
Made we wonder what’s in store/when I stood up on the floor
/And took my place at her position
But she made me wonder so/I was early don’t ya know/then she clued me in to my condition:

No doubt
I was early for my license (by a year)/early for my license (there’s no fear)
One year early for my license (won’t be late)/Early for my license (ain’t it great)
I’m early for my license/we don’t need you today

And there right before my eyes/just imagine my surprise
/When the clerk told me that I was early
Well I stood right there amazed/when I saw the year displayed
/I now began to feel a little squirrely!
She told me “look right here”/”you still have another year”/it’s way too soon for a renewal
So right then I shook my head/wanted to go home to bed
/This joke they played on me was just too cruel!

And I’ll be
Waitin’ for my birthday (come next year)/waitin’ for my birthday (have no fear)
Get my license on my birthday (‘twill be fine)/Renew it on my birthday (I’ll do it right on time!)

Waitin’ for my birthday
Waitin’ for my birthday
Waitin’ for my birthday
Waitin’ for my birthday

In my mother's home state, the driver's license office is known as the BMV. Other states may have other designations for these offices.
