On our way to a party
Riding in Vermont and singing Bohemian Rhapsody
Nothing really matters to me
passed a speed trap
headlights turn on, is he pulling out?
He is. How fast were you going?
"I think I was going 40,"
You were going 50 in a 35
I was trying not to laugh from the passenger's seat
License and Registration
Its from Kansas, how long have you lived here?
For three years, you're supposed to get a VT license
have been going to law school
So you're all law students?
No, some attorneys as well
I'll be right back.
Fireworks shoot off to the left
We make a haiku:
We get pulled over
Fireworks shoot off to the left
road bends and then ends
So you think fireworks are illegal in Vermont?
Not if you have a permit
Good answer, have a nice night.
