Freeway I-605

   Oh please, please, please
   Build a new freeway
   For me and my car.
   I like to go real fast, and not very far.
   And I don't pool, 'cause I'm way too cool.
   So, please, please, please
   Build a new freeway
   For me and my car.
   Oh please, please, please
   Build a new freeway
   For me and my car.
   It pours out poison, my fancy car.
   Kill the planet, I say, and I go drive it anyway.
   Oh please, please, please
   Build a new freeway
   For me and my car.
   There used to be trees, now gravel and tar.
   So what if it's suicide; I can still go for a nice
   long ride.
   Oh please, please, please
   Build a new freeway
   For me and my car.
   What dies when I turn the key?
   Who cares; it's just you and me.
   Oh please, please, please
   Build a new freeway
   For me and my car.
