Traffic Jam

This song is by Yonder Mountain String Band and appears on the live album Mountain Tracks: Volume 3 (2004).

I'm sitting on a hilltop looking at a traffic jam
Laughin' at the people as they drive as fast as they can
But five miles an hour won't get them very far
They'll still be sitting in their car

Sitting on a hilltop lookin' at the rushed out crowed
The words that they're yelling have got to make their mamas proud
But at the rate their goin' it's gonna be about a year
Before they get to second gear

I'm sitting on a hilltop lookin' at the city move
It makes a lot of noise but it can't seem to find a groove
People took my advice they tried to slow things down
Stop and take a look around

See me sitting on a hilltop lookin' at 'em look at me
They see a smile on my face and my hair blowin' in the breeze
Maybe just one of them will stop and say hello
And sit awhile before they go

It's time to time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to get things started for another show tonight
It's time to put on make up
It's time to do something right
It's time to play the music on the Muppet Show tonight
