Green Light Blues

words and music by Paige Powell      ©2007 Paige E. Powell

1. We’re in line at the traffic light, each car waitin’ to go

Now it’s finally turned red to green, so why’re we movin’ so slow?

Oh, why won’t people go when the light is green?

2. It doesn’t get any greener, so why isn’t that guy in gear?

 We’re yellin,’ screamin’ and shoutin’ now, even though he can’t hear

 Oh, why won’t people go when the light is green?

3. Car number one waits to see
That no one runs the red light (hey, that’s ok)

Car number two needs to move and car three isn’t in sight!

Chorus: Oh, why won’t people go when the light is green?

Why won’t people go when the light is green?

The rest of us behind them, you know what I mean

Why won’t people go when the light is green?

Bridge: The intersection is big and wide

And we all wanna get through

Big truck, he’s laggin’behind

“Hey! We’re here behind you!”

(Hey, big truck! Oh, you got a load of bricks, I see)

4. Some of us at the end back here pray the green light will stay

 We’re all in the same hurry, but they act like they’ve got all day!

 Hey, why won’t people go when the light is green?

5. You didn’t know your car’s radio could be reading your mind

 And if it could see you speak, it’d see you sayin’this line:

 (Repeat Chorus 2x)
