  • Come on mate get out of my way,
    I've far too many stops today
    I don't need you to block the road
    I have to drop this bleeding load
    Of boxes off by nine o'clock
    And then I'm off to Camden Lock
    To pick a pallet up and then
    It's Leicester Square by half past ten.
    Red Bull to keep me on the go,
    It has a funny taste you know.
    Junk food, burgers, pre packed sarnies,
    Shouting, swearing, having barneys
    With a bloke who cut in front of me
    While on my way to Bermondsey.
    I do not understand these fools,
    Who live close to their children's schools.
    They don't walk their kids to the door,
    But choose to use their 4x4!!!!
    Another type I do not like,
    That ponce in Lycra on his bike,
    In and out the cars they weave,
    With antics I do not believe.
    Taxis, minicabs, they're a pain,
    Their u turns drive me so insane.
    O.K. A service they provide
    But one day I know I'll collide
    With one who fails to indicate.
    Call it destiny or fate.
    Time's money. Money's time,
    Is double parking such a crime?
    A few minutes is all I'll be,
    Don't take your anger out on me.
    You see I have a job to do,
    So I WILL inconvenience you!!!!
