Hey, wake up, your eyes weren't open wide
You're gonna make me spill my beer,
For the last couple of miles you've been swerving from side to side
I don't like riding on the passenger side

If you don't learn how to steer

Passenger side, passenger side,
Roll another number for the road
Won't you let me make you a deal,
You're the only sober person I know

Just get behind the wheel
I don't like riding on the passenger side
Passenger side, passenger side,


I should've been your lover, but I hadn't seen...
Can you take me to the store, then the bank?
Should've been the driver, could've been the one
I've got five dollars we can put in the tank
I'll be driving soon
I've got a court date coming this June
Passenger side, passenger side,
I don't like riding on the passenger side

I don't like riding on the passenger side

    The meaning? Its about a dude who lost his liscence due to a DUI or something. Now he has to ask a friend to drive him around, hence him having to ride on the passenger side. It sucks, and he knows it, but he's hopefull.
