The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
We cruised 'round in paradise
It was ok 'til you didn't take that right
Soon we were lost and it's making me uptight
Far away from any highway
When I asked you why
You wouldn't be precise
Now it's my turn, so take my advice

It's not that way to the city
It's not that way, turn up there

You keep driving down long back alleys
Acting just like a spoiled rotten child
You've been steering so crazy, driving so wild
The day just keeps on getting later
And you aren't driving any straighter
You're making me mad, I just want to shake you

It's not that way to the city
It's not that way, turn up there

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, it's not that way
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

You're driving like a spastic rabbit
Though I try to keep my cool I just can't take it
I try to be calm but WILL YOU JUST BRAKE IT?!
Your driving's discombobulated
And I am so exasperated
Look out for that van! You're insane and cuckoo!

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, it's not ok
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, why did you stray
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

Had enough, I surrender
Keep on driving like you're on a bender
Any street, I don't mind
Leave the damn resort behind

It's not that way to the city
It's not that way, I don't care

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, so why delay
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, to my dismay
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, a wasted day
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

Oh no, it's not that way
Oh no, I think I'll pray
Listen mister to what I say
Oh no, it's not that way

I know the OS is very repetitive but all the more opportunity to introduce variations. You could have done a lot more with this. But technique was spot-on so 533

Lifeliver - you have hit on one of the main issues with writing parodies for contests. Gotta publish by the deadline even if the parody could be made better.

A little repetitive but that's Donna Summer's fault not yours... Welll maybe it's kinda your fault too but not a bad parody here just maybe a little uninspired

(Artistry) Holy crap, you managed to fit the word "discombobulated" into a parody, that's awesome. True, the choruses (chorii?) at the end were repetitive, but the rest of the parody was still solid. 555!

Yeah, the deadline-sweat certainly shows on this, Rex. Sorry big guy. Your devotion to the cause is worthy of much respect, though.

Can't blame you for rushing it, in the end the streak must continue. Plus, you're going to get some good amount of points anyway. Good work by the way.
