Wastin' Away Again Inside the DMV


image found here
 This is the song Jimmy Buffet
would have written if he had to
hang out at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles
instead of Margaritaville


Nibblin my finger nail
Time’s movin like a snail
Some of these people give me the creeps
Takin some light breaths
Don’t want a brain death
Smells like someone’s guts are beginnin to boil

Chorus:
Wastin away again inside the DMV
Searchin to replace a license that’s lost
I’d like to claim that my husband’s to blame
But I know it’s nobody’s fault

I don’t know the reason
Why this takes a season
Been here long enough to get a tattoo
Cause everyone has one
Or is carrying a hand gun
When I can leave I haven’t a clue

Chorus:
Wastin away again inside the DMV
Searchin to replace a license that’s lost
I like to claim that my husband’s to blame
Now I think
Yeah, it’s probably his fault

Wish I’d worn my flip flops
Hey look, here come the cops
Bustin in and arrestin that guy
But he is resistin
He’s yellin and twistin
Hey buddy  I’ll take your place in that car

Chorus:
Wastin away again inside the DMV
Searchin to replace a license that’s lost
I like to claim that my husband’s to blame
Now I think
Yeah, it’s completely his fault

Yes I would agree, hanging out at the DMV is not anywhere on my top 100 things to do to entertain myself. Cute twist on that song. LOVE IT.

That is a dandy DMV song. Just don't fall off the stage like Jimmy Buffet did at one of his last concerts. (Did they really arrest a guy?) How exciting! Are you still there? Did you finally get through the line? You couldn't do that on line?

Which DMV are you at? I'll send you a care package. And some shoes for all those naked babies that I know are running around in there with only a diaper on. Ewww, go take a shower.

Hysterical! Seems the DMV is universally horrible in all 50 States! This should go viral!

You know...you can get a replacement license online...I lost mine when it slipped to oblivion between the windshield and dashboard (don't ever put yours on the dashboard!). I got the replacement within a couple of days. Just sayin'.

BIG sympathy from up here where we don't have DMV but ICBC (Insurance Corporation of British Columbia). The same people run it and the same people inhabit it, from the sound of yours! Truly horrible, terrible very bad places to spend more than 10 seconds.

HAHAHA!! You just made my next wait at the DMV so much easier. I'll hum this the whole time.

i think that's a nervous laugh from all of us, cause we know we're going to have to go back there some bad day! It just gives me the heebie-geebies!

AZ needs some psychiatric counseling for their DMV survivors. Whay are they so crowded? I don't miss it. I went to the DMV in UT today and got called up before I sat down. Whaaaaat? Yes, really.
