lyrics

SPROCKET:
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 biways
There's a hundred million Mack trucks 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

SPROCKET, JONAH:
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 good book

SPROCKET:
'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
Rubberneck, rubberneck, 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

SPROCKET, JONAH:
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

SPROCKET:
'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 Beemers
Green means go
Green means go
Green means go go go go go so GO!
