Songtext:
Give The Road Back

Original-Lied: Hit The Road Jack (Ray Charles)

[Chorus]:

Give the road back
And don't you sell cars
no more no more no more no more
give the road back
and don't you sell cars no more

What'd you say?

Give the road back
And don't you sell cars
no more no more no more no more
give the road back
and don't you sell cars no more

[Verse 1]:
Oh baby, listen baby, we need space for trees
the streets belong to people, not to SUVs
a cool place to stay in the summer heat
where the children can play and the old friends meet
Well, I guess if you say so
I'll have take my cars and go - That's right!

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]:
BMW, Kia, VW, Jaguar, Renault
Mercedes, Fiat, Peugeot, Alfa Romeo
Porsche, Citroen, Subaru,
You all know what to do – That’s right!

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]:
Mitsubishi, Tesla, Hummer, Skoda, Land Rover
Volvo, Lexus, Opel, Chevrolet, Honda
Ferrari, Hyundai, Seat, Nissan, Mazda
MACHT MAL ENDLICH PLATZ DA!

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]:
Politicians, act wise, stop the car industry,
You know about the future we all wanna see,
No more money for highways and roads,
Or our beau-ti-ful pla-net erodes
Well, I guess if you say so
Public transport is the way to go - That’s right!

[Chorus]

Well
(don't you sell cars no more)

Uh, what'd you say?
(don't you sell cars no more)

I didn't understand it!
(don't you sell cars no more)

I just wanted make a profit!
(don't you sell cars no more)

Oh, I know, I was so greedy!
(don't you sell cars no more)

But I guess you are right?
(don't you sell cars no more)

Ok, let’s take the bike!
