Headlight buzzer

Like to drive with my lights on park, but I have left them on a few times when I have stopped briefly at a store or park for the dogs. Does anyone know of how to install a headlight warning buzzer on a '99 Coachmen Mirada, F53 chassis? I have some electrical skills.

Super Hooligan. Thanks for the info. The Tiffin Bus on their Powerglide chassis doesn't have this warning device, like our previous Bus on a Freightliner chassis did. I've been thinking about how to set something like this up, and you just solved my problems. I even have a piezo buzzer in the junk drawer.

Thanks Hooligan. My next project has been decided. Now I have to find the buzzer and decipher my wiring diagram!

Just a note:
I put the buzzer in this afternoon using only a Radio Shack piezo buzzer. This is on the 2013 Allegro Bus with the Tiffin Powerglide chassis. On the Tiffin Allegro Bus the lights and just about everything is controlled by computers, so no +12v at the ignition switch or the light switch. However, you can probe around behind the dash and find a +12v key switched source. I went to the front driver side parking light and tapped the hot line powering the parking light. Ran this wire up under the dash and wired in the buzzer. It works just great. The Radio Shack part numbers in Hooligan's attachment are out of date, but the clerk can get you the part numbers that superseded these. Great mod, easily done.
