Lyrics to Drive By
Drive By Video:
I was the driver for the drive-by of the neighbor\'s dog
Dad had always hated him so he said \"Come on son,
\"Get into the Vega now and I\'ll go get my shotgun\"
It was a military holiday and kids were everywhere
I hid behind the steering wheel and tried to disappear
I tried to speak but couldn\'t, Dad was whistling and drinking beer

And I prayed \"Dear God, if You save this dog
\"I will never get high, I will never jack off
\"I will be all the things that I should but have not
\"I\'ll be a good boy from now on\"

We turned around the corner soon and saw the neighbor\'s yard
Dad lit up a cigarette and rolled his window down
And grinning like an idiot he stuck his head and body out


Well he popped in a shell and took aim with the gun
Then a flash an a bang and the dog it was gone....
Jumped up and he ran away
Dad had shot right through his chain

Dad said \"Take me to the Dairy Freeze, I want to have a shake\"
We sipped them on the benches there and stared out on the lake
And Dad has never said another word about that day

And I hope you\'re not disappointed, God
\'Cause I still get high and I still jack off
And you knew I was lying but you still saved that dog
You\'re such a good God
Such a good, God damn backwards dog
And I\'ll be a good boy from now on
