The Lyrics

On New Year's Eve 2019, in Washington State, strong winds blew piles of tumbleweed onto State Route 240, piling up as high as 30 feet, burying five cars and a pick-up truck. The mess took about 10 hours to clear.

Help! I’m staring in awe,
Barely believe what I saw,
Stuck in my car in the straw,
Trapped ‘neath the pile of the tumbling tumbleweeds!

Winds blew the weeds on the road
Far from their prairie abode,
Cov’ring my car like it snowed,
Deep in the heart of the tumbling tumbleweeds!

Oh, well! This New Year’s Eve
I’ll ring in with lots of weed!

Plants keep rolling along.
Westerly winds are so strong!
Freeing my car will take long.
Call it Attack of the Tumbling Tumbleweeds!

(instrumental break)

Oh, dear! It’s Auld Lang Syne!
I will kiss this car of mine!

Hours keep dragging along
Deep under ten feet of wrong.
How does this torture prolong?
Caught in Attack of the Tumbling Tumbleweeds!

Wonderful parody to one of the most beautiful country western songs. I always liked tumbleweeds, but never realized they were so dangerous. In Winslow, Ariz. they pile them up to make Christmas trees.
