  • I've been tryin' to get to you for a long time
    Because constantly you been on my mind
    I was thinkin' 'bout a shortcut I could take
    But it seems like I made a mistake

    I was wrong, I took too long
    I got caught in the rush hour
    A fellow started to shower
    You with love and affection
    Now you won't look in my direction

    On the expressway to your heart
    The expressway is not the best way
    At five o'clock it's much too crowded
    Much too crowded, so crowded
    Much too crowded, so crowded

    Now there's too many ahead of me
    They're all the time gettin' in front of me
    I thought I could find a clear road ahead
    But I found stoplights instead

    I was wrong, baby, I took too long
    I got caught in the rush hour
    A fellow started to shower
    You with love and affection
    Come on, look in my direction

    On the expressway to your heart
    The expressway is not the best way
    At five o'clock it's much too crowded
    Much too crowded, so crowded
    No room for me (too crowded)Writer/s: KENNETH GAMBLE, LEON HUFF
