THE LEARNER

I am the learner,
I will run you down,
If you're walking on footpaths,
While I'm driving around.

Yes, I am the learner,
Stay off of that footpath,
I drive like a madman,
And you'll be cut in half.

I am the learner,
I'll drive you up the wall,
With the way I drive,
I shouldn't drive at all.

I am the learner,
And I am totally insane,
Cause I think with my feet,
Instead of my brain.

I am the learner,
I am sorry to say,
Watch out pedestrians,
Get out of my way!

I am the learner,
And the cops are mad,
Because my driving,
Is the worst of the bad.

I am the learner,
The driver from hell,
Get out of my car,
And take with you that smell.

I am the learner,
Faster and faster I go,
When I will slow,
Nobody knows.

I am the learner,
So jump skip and hop,
Cause when I get my drivers,
Then maybe I'll stop.

I am the learner,
Totally under qualified,
You can't outrun me,
So you better bloody well hide.

I am the learner,
I am on a high,
Cause now I can go,
And really let fly.

So watch out people,
Get the heck outta my way,
I'm the learner driver,
And I'm here to stay!
