The Lyrics

In honor of "Christmas in July", here's a parody of the tried-and-true classic "Jingle Bells" with a New Jersey twist.
Driving down the road, in my '06 Chevrolet
Heading past the tolls on the Garden State Parkway
This guy won't let me pass
I guess he's not too bright
How in the world will I get all my shopping done tonight?
Jingle bells, feel like hell, driving all this way
Oh what hell it is to drive on the Garden State Parkway
Jingle bells, it feels like hell, driving up this way
Oh what hell it is to drive on the Garden State Parkway
About two days ago
I went out for a drive
Then Ashley and Michelle
Were seated by my side
My car wasn't that great
I was skidding down the highway
Right past the Paramus cops
I had to drag my feet around
To get the car to stop
Oh, jingle bells, it feels like hell
Driving up this way
Oh what hell it is to drive on the Garden State Parkway
The light is red, my battery's dead
But at least I'm still OK
Oh, what hell is to drive this '06 Chevrolet
Heading through Paramus
In a big black cloud of smoke
People keep on laughing
But I wonder what's the joke
I've got to get to Kmart
To pick up the layaway
'Cause before you know it
I'll need gifts for Christmas Day
Oh, jingle bells, I feel like
Driving out this way
Oh what hell it was to drive on the Garden State Parkway
I didn't know if stuff went wrong
But at least I got out OK
Oh what hell it was to drive my '06 Chevrolet.

A nice "Christmas In July" themed parody. Only a few shopping months left till Dec 25.

Please forgive me for including one more line than necessary: the song should've gone from the line about my friends Ashley and Michelle to the one about "skidding down the highway".
