The Lyrics

I saw a sign for 'Alan's Driving School' and thought it said Alanis. Hence the parody. Imagine a naked driving instructor with transparent carrots dangling on the rear view mirror.
It's time to pull out
Pull clutch up slowly then turn about
And drive down the avenue
Don't you forget - you have to give way
Corner's closed, it gets hard to see
And you must pause there
There you go driving before the amber has turned green
Read the highway code anew then
And did you lock up all the doors, we're in rough streets already
If only I could catch that yobbo!

And all you really need is some patience
A way will open, wait and see
And all I really want is obedience

Now don't you pout
So you wonder why I'm nagging you all about
The way you use your lights and mirrors
Watch that Sierra
He's moving in and then right back out
You'll develop the same empathy
And I am nervous of the gung ho-ish ways of your drive
Not ready yet to meet my Maker
I'm comforted by dual controls, they're what keep me alive
I'm soothed by their assisting nature

What I wouldn't give to find a safe kid
Someone who would pass the test
And what I wouldn't give to make you careful

Enough of my words, let's look at you drive for a minute
Enough of your drive, let's stop around here for a while
The handbrake, the neutral gear and the key in ignition turning
Back around, back around.

Why are you so petrified of signals?
Here can you turn round this?

Did you think about your lights, your brake, your mirrors
Or if you were about to die?
Or did you just drive me to distraction?
And all I need now is for you to park here in reverse
A gear to match the slow maneuver
Do you have no concept of speed other than when speeding?
If only you could slow your speedo

All I really want is some pacing
And not find skid marks on the ground
And all I really want is a car-length
All I really want is some clutch here
A smooth drive and a gentle ride
And all I really want is some caution
For my dear cousins across the pond, I spelt manoeuvre incorrectly. I always hated the correct spelling anyway.

WOW! One of the best Alanis parodies I have EVER seen. I hope you will do/have done more, cause this got 5-5-5 from me. I especially liked that "Watch that Sierra" bit; I thought it was a great replacement for the original.
