Parker, well done

I parked my car and walked away
In Sharjah, just like every day.
(Ain't it sad?)
And ever since September One
My only parking space has gone.
(That's too bad)
My car was on a sandy plot.
Two hundred chips is quite a lot.
Pay the Municipality!
It's inevitability...

Money, money, money!
They want money.
Think of it as tax.
Money, money, money!
It's not funny.
Milk us to the max!

Aha! What can anyone do?
They decide they want more money;
Never mind the facts.

We live here, and we find we are
Unable just to park the car.
(What a swiz!)
Perhaps we are required to deign
To park it in Umm Al Quwain?
(Take the pizz!)
Why do I make such a fuss?
Catch the (non-existent) bus!
Or maybe I could, if I like,
Just break the law and ride a bike.

Money, money, money!
Making money.
Greed's a Deadly Sin.
Landlord, just for fun he
Rents the dunny;
Packs a family in!

Aha! Only one thing to do.
Simply smile and pay the money.
There's no way to win.

ROFLMAO! Think this one rivals your "Drive Like an Egyptian" for singing in the car at the top of my lungs!

If you want to park for free, drive down the Ittihad road...
