about

Early 1997 studio demo; originally included on Scarlet East's TURNIP compilation CD.

lyrics

Puffy-chested law-abiders
Old people and Volvo drivers
Go as slow as you want, but don't waste my time -
Just keep to the right
'Cause the left is mine!

On the highways and the thruways and the byways
There's a hundred-million Mack trucks, and they're all going my way
I guess in trucker school they didn't explain:
If you're gonna do the speed limit, get out of the fast lane
Old ladies in their blue and grey Mercedes
Rich girls hopping bars in their daddies' new cars
Rock stars, war heroes, presidents and priests:
Everyone's an asshole when they cut in front of me, buddy!

Green means go
Green means go
Green means go go go go go GO!

Fighting is useless, baby
Just play along
Open the window, turn the radio on
There are too many of you
For anyone's good
Hope you brought a nice book 'cause
We're stuck in traffic just like Stevie Winwood.

Puffy-chested law abiders
Old people and Volvo drivers
You're not the only motherfucker on the road
I am!

Brake light, brake light, 1-2-3
The only thing between my home and me
Is a quarter-mile stretch of road
Blocked off by a trailer with an oversized load

Rubbernecker rubbernecker 1-2-3
"The cop is pulled over, but he might catch me"
And all the other Good Samaritans whose lives won't be complete
Unless they see blood splashed on the cold concrete

Fighting is useless, baby
Just play along
Open the window, turn the radio on
There are too many of you
For anyone's good
Hope you packed a nice dinner 'cause
We're stuck in traffic just like Stevie Winwood.

Puffy-chested law abiders
Old people and Volvo drivers
School buses and daydreamers
Truckers, college kids and Beamers

Green means go
Green means go
Green means go go go go go so GO!
