The sign says "No Parking - AT ANY TIME"

And yes, that means it is a crime.

To ignore it and say, "Stick-it", may get you a ticket.

Pay attention, and believe that stupid sign!

 

No, the sign didn't say, "You're special for today"

But you seemed to think it did, so you parked anyway.

Then you act like you've been bitten when a ticket's written

'Cause you did something stupid and now you got to pay.

 

You got caught when you went to take that chance

Now you cry and moan, and say, “It’s such a shame!”

No-one twisted your arm, or said, “There will be no harm,”

You’re the one that took the risk and the one that is to blame.

 

No, it's not just another game we play.

And with law-enforcement, what else is there to say?

Whether it's the parking ticket blues, guns, or booze,

You're the one that rolled the dice, now shut-up and pay.
