The Lyrics

A perfect endorsement for M.A.D.D...
Baby, baby, it looks like you wrecked your car
Baby, baby, your drinking went too far
You should have gave your keys to someone at the bar

You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
Why were you drunk drivin’, went to jail today?

Cops were on your tail, looking to bust your ass
Cops stayed on your tail, they probably found your grass
When you heard those sirens, you shouldn’t have hit the gas

You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
Why were you drunk drivin’, went to jail today?

Didn’t see that stop sign, you thought it was no big deal
You couldn’t see that stop sign, now you’re eating the steering wheel
The airbags didn’t work, so you flew through the windshield

You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
Why were you drunk drivin’, went to jail today?

Ambulance came down the street, those sirens wailed
The police were on the scene, breathalyser failed
Thought you’d get away, but now you’re gonna need bail

You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
You did some, drunk drivin’, go to jail, yes you were, drunk drivin’, went to jail
Why were you drunk drivin’, went to jail today?

I'd be swerving too if this song was playing, drunk or not drunk.

Great original song (I prefer the Brian Setzer Orchestra version though). Good parody, Mikey. This would be easy enough to record.

(SOTM) I'm curious about what else could have been done to the chorus. Great title sub, nonetheless.

(Decathlon 2.0) Brilliant take one a different kind of commercial...the kind that doesn't sell something in the literal sense. Well done!
stuart mcarthur - October 15, 2007 - Report this comment
(dec2) like Ag said, the choruses could have been varied, but there were enough laughs any way Mikey - drunk-driving is only a crime if you take the main roads - sidestreet drunk driving is legal in most cities - 555

(Dec2) Definitely a different kind of commercial... kind of fun, I guess. (Not part of the parody, but I loved the youtube sax & guitar solos :-) )
Stu - DUI is legal down sidestreets? Really???
stuart mcarthur - October 16, 2007 - Report this comment
yes, especially the really really narrow dimly-lit oneway ones - go berserk and kill as many hobos as you like ;-)

(Decathlon) same ol, same ol.

Hey Lindsay!!! Wanna dance?!?! This is your song!!!

(DEC 2.1) I very much doubt Jack Daniels will be hiring you for their next campaign, Mikey...but this was a great write. 555

Decathlon...some fun new lyrics to a fun old song! =)

(Decathlon2) already said my piece earlier. I might add that though this was very simplistic, it actually would work for performance purposes of what you were going for.

( Dec 2: Decathlon Harder) Awesome job! 5s, I only know the Brian Setzer version of the OS though.

Great idea, the chorus worked really well here!

Drunken 555

(SOTM) - I recommend those in the US do not take Stuart McArthur's suggestion. I don't think they care what street you're on in the states. Hell, some states will arrest you if you're simply in your car drunk, not moving.
Oh yeah, the parody. Funny stuff

(SOTM) See above! Still lovin' it!

(SOTM) Destruction 555!

(SOTM) ah I remember this one - I've nothing against not varying the choruses really, Mikey, but I'm unlikely to give SOTM votes for it against such imaginative opposition - as for my drunk driving tips - as well as only driving down lanes with your lights off (so as not to draw attention) try not to use words with consonants, if a cop does happen to intercept

(SOTM) Ditto Stu's comments, and my own twice before:) Good job still Mikey.
