Battle for the Road - Lyrics

Word Up Yellow Unit 9

Intro


It’s the battle for the road! People walk,

people drive, turning friends into foes!

You don’t want to be outside

When the battle for the road pops off,

and don’t try to just stand there and watch

—no! You’ve got to take sides.

Meet Connie Walker, an upright citizen,

Both in the sense of being honest and

innocent, and upright because she likes to

walk in the city she lives in—she’s a

pedestrian. Does Connie ever drive, though?

Nope, guess again.

She walks so much her shoes are padded,

She’s always on the move so they call her nomadic, but she couldn’t stand the constant drone of traffic.

The steady noise in the background really

tested her patience, the roads in the city

were congested, clogged up, backed up,

and she was stressing.

The noise and the smoke made her feel aggressive, even vindictive; she wanted to

get some revenge on the cars for blocking

her momentum. Yeah, her forward motion

was stalled, and then some.

So as Connie walks around she keeps

scheming on ways to stop the flow of cars, to impede it, or at least get it off the street that

she needed.

So she put up a fake road sign to block traffic,

And mass confusion went down and ensued.

Meet Tommy Carson, calm and silent,

Driving to work in his brand-new hybrid,

With gas and electric combined inside

to keep it gliding,

Stopped, couldn’t believe his eyes when

He saw the road signs in his customary path,

Every day he went the same way, there and back. And he saw Connie Walker blocking the pavement, waving a sign, and he thought,

“This is flagrant. She’s breaking the law and rubbing it in my face and I’m supposed to

take it?” He was infuriated, mad and shaking, but he was late.

So he found another way and the next day

came back, with eight friends driving

hatchbacks and Pontiacs. And there was

Connie relaxing, still blocking the road,

With traffic slowed to a trickle,

just a little flow.

But she had six friends with her this time, though. But Tommy wasn’t trying to stop,

he just thought, “Why not?” And drove past Connie on the sidewalk.

Now who’s breaking the law? Yelling for cops,

The pedestrians all left the spot feeling distraught, Really upset, and what happens next? Another day, another battle,

another angry mood.

If the battle lasts long enough, call it a feud.

You’ll probably hear all about it on the

evening news.

It’s the battle for the road! People walk,

people drive, turning friends into foes!

You don’t want to be outside

When the battle for the road pops off,

and don’t try to just stand there and watch

—no! You’ve got to take sides.
