My Suspension is Comin’ Loose

Anyone who has driven around Norman for more than a few weeks, at any time during the past 20 years, will understand the following song parody–to the tune of Eddie Rabbit’s “Every Which Way But Loose”:

================================

I always drive around Norman
With potholes, craters and dings
Expensive re-alignment bills
Are such necessary things
This stoplight’s got me thinkin’
While I’m idlin’, the cross street’s clear
If I’m headed to the next light
Then why the hell am I still here?

I’m testin’ my resistance
And it’s wearin’ mighty thin
They’ve never synchronized these lights
And it’s now past 2010
My anger tells me to move along
But that cop car makes me stay
And yet I feel the urge to break the law
And blow this light away
Can you tell that my…

Suspension is comin’ loose
My suspension is comin’ loose
These brakes are worn, stoplights you see
They go red right there in front of me
My suspension is comin’ loose
Baby there’s no excuse
That my suspension is comin’ loose

When the sun comes up in the mornin’
It should find me someplace new
But I’ll be stuck at this red light
Brake pedal under my shoe
This road work just keeps gallin’ me
The deadline’s ten months past
Don’t you hurry, it won’t matter
‘Cause that train is comin’ fast
Ain’t no doubt that my…

Suspension is comin’ loose
My suspension is comin’ loose
These shocks are shot, stoplights you see
They go red right there in front of me
My suspension is comin’ loose
Baby there’s no excuse
That my suspension is comin’ loose!
