Perform a U-Turn when possible
Gentle, persuading, Oozing confidence
I almost abandon my final defence
I am so used to obeying her every command
With steering wheel held, tight in my hand
Eyes fixed ahead, unblinking, unwinking, unseeing
Hurtling along, a sleek 2 litre being
'Perform a U-Turn when possible'
More insistent and somewhat less charming
I find her attitude a little alarming
But I'm sure I know best, I'm sure I am right
She's manic, obsessed and ready to fight
There's a film of moisture poised on my brow
I think I can win but I've no idea how.
'Perform a U-Turn when possible.'
A more demanding, less tolerant tone
Reminds me that here I am never alone
A huge lorry limps on with tarpaulin a flutter
Great plumes of spray thrown up from the gutter
He steals a glance as I slide by
A determined driver with steel in my eye
'PERFORM A U-TURN WHEN POSSIBLE'
Oh If only I could
Then I most certainly, definitely would
Pull to the side and turn about face
Swallow my pride - hang head in disgrace
But I can't let her take me, in with her tricks
I can't make a U-Turn, not on the M6
