Rain, cold, unrelenting,
Makes the blacktop so slick.
Drive safe and get there.
Don’t not get there quick.
Traffic, slow moving.
It’s all red tail lights up front.
In your rearview a youngster
Driving like a
Man from LA,
Weaving in, dodging out,
In his bright blue Imprezza
With the pram handle stuck out.
He’s less Holly, more Holmewood,
Driving like a right dick.
He’s not safe, he won’t get there
And he’ll get there real quick.
