The Lyrics

Crook gets out of jail and leads police on a tense high-speed chase. I synced this the best I could to the NEW video from Dead or Alive - NOT the original. The new one fits my theme better. Watch it here and compare. For those of you who don't camp out watching police shows, PIT stands for Precision Immobilization Technique. A Rhino Bar is a heavy steel push bar mounted on the front of many police cars.
I'm on the run ....

Well I, I've got to get away
Well I recall my prison number ... escaped.

All I know is, on TV, chases look like lots of fun
Hopin' that I'll clear those cars
On the run, not fun.

I must reach Mexicooooo...
[Cop on loudspeaker:] "Give up! Pull over fool!"
Man I, I've got to get away now, hey hey.

All I know is that I do
Not feel like I'm having fun
Fast approaching from behind
Watch out, here he comes.

[crunch of metal]

Cop spins me right round, Smokey
Right round - PIT maneuver, Smokey
Right round, southbound.
Cop spins me right round, Smokey
Right round - full 360 maybe
Gas down, southbound.

[skids wildly]

I ... I almost met my end now ... crazy
And I don't want those cops even one little inch closer.

[police sirens can be heard in background]

What I know is what I see
Cruisers out to end my run
Open up a gap in cars
Oh crap, here's backup

[crunch of metal]

Cop spins me right round, Smokey
Right round - pull the handbrake, can't see
Through my smoke cloud

Cop spins me right round, smoky
Burnout - overcompensated
Turn round, northbound.

Cop spins me right round, making
Heart pound, dented fender scraping,
Sparks, sound, on ground

Cop spins me right round, aging
Shocks bounce, cross the median and
Face trucks head on

[cops chatter unintelligibly on police radio in background]
[Watch commander: "Spin him out, spin him out, spin him out"]

I must speed up
I must speed up

Goin' 'bout a hundred three, even still, they're catching up
[Police chief:] "Knock him with your Rhino Bars --

[lead unit hits suspect's quarter panel hard]

[all becomes quiet as suspect's car goes airborne]


I'm flipped upside-down, help me
Top down - call a wrecker 'cause my
Car's down, 10 count
I'm flipped upside-down, help me
I shout; roof is crushed in and I
Cannot get out

The Jaws of Life have fin'ly
Come out; when they're done my car looks
Like chopped downspouts
Cops pick me up and drag my
Butt out, shove me in a Crown Vic
Headed downtown

Cops send me crosstown, lady
Judge frowns, she informs me that I'm
Go-ing down, down
You see me right now in the
Big house, doing ten to twenty
...Will not bend down!

You see me right now in the
Big house, I'll be almost 80
(When I get out)

(SOTM) I liked this...for some reason, I can picture Jerry Reed singin' this (with maybe some help with C.W. McCall!) Ha! 555

This is nothing like the Billy Idol version, oh well, it was still very well done

SOTM-Smash hit!

(SOTM) Nice going, OJ! =P Anyway, this was really great, and I thought it was absolutely exceptional that you varied ALL of those choruses. I still don't know how you do that.

SOTM - Matthias mentions a version by Billy Idol, and I'll drop that the version by Gemini 5 is a fav of mine. This OS was just horrible, like listening to a high speed car crash and.... oh wait, I get it now, never mind. :-)

(SOTM) And yet another awesome car-related parody by WBMJ. Will he ever stop. We sure hope not!

(SOTM) I DEMAND that more people download the OS and vote on this! Sorry I missed it first time, but this is a solid gold CLASSIC. Record it! 555+

(SOTM) I can't seem to find it now (I know it's on but there's a video of a PIT gone wrong, as in the cops perform it four times before they bring the guy to a stop (the first three resulted in 360*s, and the suspect recovered each time). Funny work, especially "...Will not bend down!". Varying all the choruses was great, too.

This... has to be... the greatest parody... of all time... Well... close to it anyway. 5-5-5 TO THE MAXIMUM! I LOVE IT!

This parody is freeakin AWESOME! 555

Not sure it's all that funny, but it does have a good message in discouraging people from trying to outrun cops irl. When they're wrong it's better to frustrate them in court.----MM

(SOTM) all your usual perfect pacing on display here, wannabeMJ, and a cool story to match - I played it against the OS once for the pacing and then again for the story - fave bits: "overcompensated" and "Will not bend down" and, weirdly, "downspouts" - whatever they are! - excellent parody - 555

Stu - Downspouts are those metal things that hang down from your house gutters and allow the collected rainwater to flow down to the ground so it doesn't overflow and splash on people's heads. Sorry if that was confusing to you. (I thought that line was a little clumsy myself.)

ah, rainspouts! (which is what we Aussies call them) - I half-guessed, but because it's you, I assumed it was another car-part that, being clueless about cars, I've never heard of
Johnny D - December 30, 2006 - Report this comment
EXCELLENT use of structure, sound effects, and parenthetical verses.
Phil Alexander - December 30, 2006 - Report this comment
Best I've read this evening - some excellent use of words & subs, and great storytelling
Glen S - December 31, 2006 - Report this comment
Well done. Great structure and use of the repetitious refrain.
Tim Mayfield - December 31, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Very enjoyable. Even though I did get a little dizzy... ;-)
