I spend far more time in the car than on stage. This is a road rage controller. Learn the chorus and sing it next time you get behind one of these… it helps the blood pressure.


I'm driving in the middle lane
Driving in the middle lane
Not too fast, not too slow
That's the way I like to go
I never use the inside lane
Never use the inside lane
You can flash, you can toot,
I don't give a hoot
I'm staying in the middle lane

You may see me as a pest
You don't think I've passed my test
But I do what I do best
Brain in neutral, mind at rest

Sometimes drivers get too close
Sometimes they get bellicose
Shake their fists, get quite verbose
Me, I just stay comatose

So if you should see ahead
That middle lane hog that you dread
Don't you wish that moron dead
It could be me, so join instead
And we can have a convoy!
Imagine, everybody driving in the middle lane
No one on the inside lane
No one on the outside lane
Everybody in the middle lane
Going back mile after mile after mile
That's my idea of heaven
Especially when I'm towing my caravan
