City driving makes me crazy,
City driving drives me mad.
Round and round I go forever:
Can no parking place be had?
How I long for open spaces
Of a village or our town,
Easy parking just for banking,
Shopping's easy there, I've found.
So why am I in the city
Making turns to left and right?
I'm here 'cause my husband promised
He would take me out tonight.
Dinner first, a movie after,
Then back to our town we'll drive,
Him in front; and me, I'll follow
Like the best of driving wives.
Next time we two go for dinner,
Mere blocks from our home we'll be,
And, of course, to watch a movie,
We can do that on TV.
