The Accident Submit Correct Lyrics

Last night I saw an accident
On the corner of Third and Green
Two cars collided and I got excited
Just being part of that scene

It was Mrs. Tom Walker and her beautiful daughter
Pamela, was driving the car
they got hit by a man in a lite blue sedan
who had obviously been to a bar.

They don't know how lucky they are
They could have run into that tree
Got struck by a bolt of lightning
And raped by a minority

It was a four way stop dilemma
We all arrived the same time
I yielded to the man to the right of me
And he yielded it right back to mine

Well, the yield went around and around and around
Till Pamela finally tried
Just then the man in the light blue sedan
Hit Pamela's passenger side

They don't know how lucky they are
They could have run into that tree
Got struck by a bolt of lightning
And raped by a minority

Pamela hit her head on the mirror
Mrs Walker got a bump on the knee
The man hit himself in the face and said
"Why does this happen to me?"

Then the neighbors came out and they gathered about
Saying "Hey, who hit who anyway?"
And the police arrived at a quarter to five
And pronounced all the victims okay

But they don't know how lucky they are
They could have run into that tree
Got struck by a bolt of lightning
And raped by a minority
