Driving song

We barrel down Sheikh Zayed on a sunny afternoon
The speed alarm is beeping out a very merry tune
We rubberneck to see a wreck upon the other side
We phone a friend and send a text, it's such a joyful ride

Driving Dubai, yeah, Driving Dubai
We race we speed we crash we burn we die

The traffic lights have just turned red and so we dash across
We nearly cause an accident but we don't give a toss
We shunt a taxi up the rear to get it out the way
We're off before they call the cops so someone else can pay

Driving Dubai, yeah, Driving Dubai
We roar we fly we zoom we hit we die

We roar up the hard shoulder and we weave it all about
But they can never see us as the windows are blacked out
Across the central barrier and up onto the kerb
We tailgate everyone in sight, it really is superb

Driving Dubai, yeah, Driving Dubai
We skid we swerve we screech we smash we die


Now given music and voice (download here) by Dubtown Lady.

The song made may month. Hilarious.
You should record it, sell it, and use it as a platform to spread the message of safe driving. Can someone do it in Arabic as well? That would be the icing on the cake!

Hey Dubtown Lady, that was really nice. It has a very Sixties-folk feel to it which gives the lyrics a different edge.

Now it's bugging me - your voice and singing style remind me of a famous singer but I just can't think who.

Can't seem to listen to your ditty sd, but I'm sure dl has done it justice.
I'm sure it will reach the top of the Dubai music charts, if translated into Arabic, with habibi thrown in a dozen times, just for good measure.
