The Lyrics

(Fat Cat Gas Company’s Evil Laughter)

(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold

People forced to drive in a small compact
It seems that SUVs no longer attract
So while you spend your green all the fat cats eat
They’ll get all of your money ‘less you walk or ski
You bought a new Suburban you thought it was worthwhile
Don’t you know that those use one gallon per mile
You’re forced to trade that in for a tiny Jeep
My truck I’m going to miss, now it’s in a scrap heap, sob…

Gas pump, Gas pump in your hand
To fill your car it costs a grand
And soon the gas prices will rise
They’re shrinking, for right now… Holy cow!
Roller Coaster prices stink
They rise then lower, up and down
Gas pump, Gas pump in your hand
Is all your money spent?

Buying gas I’m broke flat, rich brats
Still getting cash from the bus pass
Indy Speedway’s dead track
All the racecars were sold back
Damn Shell station’s prices put me in fear
I can’t afford a nice trip to Disney this year
Unless a plane or train we take
(Wha, wha, wha, wha, wha)
Is just that Bush is a big clown
Makes me frown
In gas drowned
It’s a disgrace
Shows no remorse
Gonna buy a horse
We’ll take his crown
Buy straw and hay
Won’t drive, hither-thither
Ride a bike or simply run instead
I was never one to negotiate
(Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...)

(More evil laughter)
Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold
(Exon, Exon, Exon) Fuel’s Gold

Sneakers, sneakers worn by man
Used instead of my large van
Racing downhill on my bike
It’s cheap to get around
Drove forever paid the fee
Instead I’ll paddle out by sea
Skateboard, Skateboard I’m a fan
Wipe off that fat cat’s grin

Oh damn, buy it, buy it
We’re just all suckers for it
Never learned to rollerblade
(Wha, wha, wha, wha, wha)
Once thought bike it, bike it
Good plan but have you tried it?
Biking just makes my time waste
(Wha, wha, wha, wha, wha, wha)

Fuel’s Gold (Evil Laughter)
Fuel’s Gold
Fuel’s Gold (Devilish cackling)
Fuel’s Gold

I'm lame, can't play music where I am right now, but I support slaps in these faces, and your rhmes scheme seemed great from the free-read.

Ah, yes - there is no fuel like an old fuel. The prices at the pump are starting to rise just in time for the summer season. Exon - X-Off! You know just how I feel about the energy situation. Fine write Matt.

(ABC) I had pacing troubles with the rap sections myself. Minor quibble: one doesn't paddle "by sea" but "to sea". Still good with the giggles.

Well-written, not a lot of laughs, but "one gallon per mile" was pretty good.

Clever stuff as always, Matthias. I was almost shocked I actually recognized the OS. Well done.
Stuart McArthur - May 13, 2009 - Report this comment
good point that flying, training, walking, roller-blading and horseback are all more economical than driving - we should sell all the cars to China so they can make watches out of them - nice job matty - 555

(Ages2) Oh if only I had gotten off my ass and learned to drive, then I could relate to this parody more! I've no idea who or what Exon is, and there were a couple of pacing quibbles, bot otherwise this was great!

Damnitt, I meant ABC4, not Ages2. Oops!

(ABC) (In Montgomery Burns' voice) "Exxxxxx-cellent!" (bob: Exxon is an oil company.) 5-5-5.

Well, you could paddle by sea if there was a river next to it :) Well done, this made me laugh several times.

The idea was well thought out Matty, but your were kinda rough on the pacing particularly in the last little bridge/chorus thing. The examples of alternative modes of transportation were fun though.

555 mph and if only we can teleport, the convenience...overall in the wise words of a steroid using and diabetes promoting tiger, they're grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!!!

First of all it's ExxonMobil and not Exon. Second, what nation do you live in? SUVs, CUVs, big trucks, and V-8 Luxury Sports are still selling strong, Lyft drivers excepted and those dainty men who drive electric vehicles or subcompact pieces of sh*t! Even when gas was 4 dollars a gallon it didn't stop people from driving or buying the above mentioned vehicles. Btw, biodiesel and fuel cell tech is the next wave. Electric vehicles are nothing new. They were actually around before the internal combustion engine and led nowhere. Now they're trendy again for liberal environmentalist tree huggers, pseudo- intellectuals who buy Apple PCs and iPhones, and dummy futurists conned into believing in the false dream of sci-fi wonderland propaganda. The world is loaded with oil and Americans still love big, loud, powerful, gas-consuming vehicles. Btw, bike riding is overrated as are Segway vehicles. Did they take over as personal transports? Nope. Epic fail dangerous sidewalk vehicle only fit for mall security teams!

(Artistry) Touch a nerve there, Felix? Anyway, forgot that I read this (hey, it was eight years ago, I'm lucky if I can remember what I had for tea last week...probably fast food, though), but my original comment still stands. Though I am now learning to drive. And I know what Exxon is. Uh...555 attack! *flees*
Blaydeman - March 09, 2017 - Report this comment
(Artistry) I had similar issues that others had pertaining to pacing. This song is very hard to pace. Lots of weird swallowed syllables that you could skip or add. It's trickier than most might think. I liked the concept and I thought you played it out well. Wasn't rolling laughing, but I was definitely nodding and grinning the whole time.
