"D.U.I." as written by Ciara Princess Harris, Kenneth Charles Coby, Brian Scott Cohen, Sean Fenton and Christopher Sayre Llewellyn....
Three in the morning and I gotta be someplace
I don't remember where
Friends try to make me stay or call me a cab home
I grab my keys and a beer

The cops they took my license away
But I got my car out of impound today
And I've been drunk since last Saturday
You'd better stay outta my way

I drink and drive
Feel so alive
I'm doin' ninety-five
I drink and drive
I feel so alive
I drink and drive

Early morning and the freeway's deserted
Like it's all mine
I'm trying to set a new drunken speed record
But I can't drive a straight line
Flashing lights
Split the night I'm tossing bottles as I swerve to the right
Now I've slammed my face into the back of a big-rig
At least you'll never catch me you fucking pigs

Designate someone other than me
I'm so drunk I can hardly see
Another shot of jager and I turn the key
I got so many places to be

I drink and drive
Feel so alive
I'm doin' ninety-five
I drink and drive
I feel so alive
I drink and drive

When I'm on a binge, my friends all cringe
They won't drive at night
Cause down at the freeway it's such a fright
But I think I drive alright

The cops they took my license away
But I got my car out of impound today
And I've been drunk since last Saturday
You'd better stay outta my way

I drink and drive
Feel so alive
I'm doin' ninety-five
I drink and drive
I feel so alive
I drink and drive

When I'm on a binge, my friends all cringe
They won't drive at night
Cause down at the freeway it's such a fright
But I think I drive alright

    General CommentMostly right, but the chorus is off. It should read like this.

    Might drink and drive!
    Feel so alive
    Never take that dive
    Feel so alive
    Doin' 95
    Might drink and drive
    Feel so alive
    Might drink and drive

    Also, the third line in the fourth stanza should be

    Trying to set a new driving speed record

    Lastly,
    Cops they took my license away
    Got my car out of impound today
    I've been drunk since last Saturday
    Better stay outta my way

    General CommentI noticed /\/\/\/\ that post was from 2k3.

    I would've agreed with you last year, but now, I think Green Day is back and kicking ass again. At least George Bush has done one thing good...

    General Commentsing to yourself the tune of the chorus of P.O.D's "alive" with the words to the chorus of this song. Funny huh?

    General CommentGreen Day's DUI sounds very strange and reminds me of Austrian folk music. That's pretty weird...
    I like both songs, and I don't think one of the bands is better than the other!
