Apologies in advance for non-political-correctness.
This is a song I heard sung in college (by an Asian buddy, btw.) It's sung to the tune of Billy Joel's "For the Longest Time. Here's the only verse I know, and I've been searching for the rest...

(whoa whoa whoa)
For the longest time...
(whoa whoa whoa)
For the longest time...

Oriental drivers are the worst...
I go faster when I'm in reverse... (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Please Mr. Ling Wong,
Wish you drove like you play ping-pong...
I've been behind you for the longest time. (whoa whoa whoa)

*Sung to the tune of "For The Longest Time" by Billy Joel.

Slow so slow. They drive so darn slow...so slow....They drive so darn slow..

Oriental drivers are the worst.
I go faster when I'm in reverse.
Hey Mr. Ling Wong,
Sure wish you drove like you play ping-pong.
I've been behind you for the longest time.

Driving like you're not a bit concerned.
Never using signals when you turn.
You're in the fast lane,
And I'm about to go insane 'cause
I have been behind you for the longest time.

One should never drive recklessly.
It's good to be safe.
It's good not to speed.
But don't you ever ask yourself why,
You're being passed by,
Small children on skate-boards?

That's my horn you're hearing from the rear.
That's my finger in your rear-view mirror.
Don't get a ticket but,
Shift out of first gear and kick it.
I've been behind you for the longest time.

Slow...so slow. They drive so darn slow...so...slow
(repeat)

This is just...SO wrong. I mean, everyone in New Hampshire knows that VERMONT drivers are the worst!

Thank you so much for remembering all the lyrics. I love to sing it when I am stuck behind this "kind" of driver...because it is so true! i have been trying to teach it to my 14 year old son who loves it but it has been so long since I heard it I couldn't remember all the lyrics. Now this classic can be passed on to the next generation.

I first heard that song sung by Mark and Brian who have a syndicated radio morning show that's broadcast from out here in L.A.. Did they write it? I don't know.

Yes, Mark and Brian sang that song. I think I have a MP3 of it on an old computer. If I can find it I'll find someplace to post it online...

Oh, yea...pass on a prejudice to another generation. Yes, preserve the old songs, but think about what it is passing on...

This song was written and performed by Jonathon Brandmeier (and, I assume, his band The Leisure Suits).

He was a local morning disc jockey in Phoenix Arizona in the early 80's when I was a student there.

He was and is known for his song parodies (see "Dead Donkeys On the Runway Again".

Listening to it now after so many years, I didn't realize how racist it is.

Not only is this biased, but, in my experience, it is grossly incorrect. When I lived in South Korea, the drivers alternated between brake & accelerator & drove extremely fast & erratically.

My dad and I used to sing this song on our way back from Karate class (sort of ironic). We only knew the first verse and half the third verse, so we made up the rest, lol.

I am truly disappointed by the responses on this thread not to mention the thread itself. You all must be in the tea party because we know liberals can't be this racist, don't we?

It's the whole song, sounds original, but not sure. In any case as PC as it isn't, it's really funny! I'm married to one and even she laughs (and semi-identifies!)

Surely to qualify as a stereotype (that shouldn't be passed on) that stereotype needs to be current in the first place.
