The Lyrics

I remember paying $.89 a gallon only 7 years ago. This sucks.
price of fuel is too high
wish we knew exactly why

cash flow turning red
pumping gas is what I dread
wish i could just walk instead
my wallet's dead

unleaded plus - $3.25
don't make much bread
f*** 'em, man
drive off this time
double the crime

oooh cash i burn
fueling my Excursion
getting 12 M.P.G.

oooh here i turn
another filling station
now i need more gasoline

the price of fuel is too high
wish we knew exactly why

drive on to work alone
left my SUV at home
no longer a roaming gnome

gauge reads empty, out of cash
discover card
interest for a tank of gas
it goes way too fast, fast, fast, fast, fast

oooh cash i burn
fueling my Excursion
getting 12 M.P.G.

oooh at my bank
taking out a mortgage
for a tank of gasoline

price of fuel is too high
wish we knew exactly why

money burns

I hear ya as well as probably the whole nation - $3.25? You must live in Calif. Here in Dallas the cheapest I've seen was $2.49 (but everywhere else in the area is between $2.56-$2.70). Anyways, this parody has a much more creative topic unlike my parody which deals with food.

I'm from the Chicago area (far, far southwest suburbs). My town is just about ready to break out the 3's for premium, but in's damn near $3.25 for premium...I just like the way it fit in the song.

Wish i could comment on your tune, thatiscorrect, but DKTOS. Wanted to ask what area are you from? I'm a northside Chicagoan, originally from Lake In the Hills. (we need more Chicagoans here!!)

I was born and live in Morris, Illinois, a town about 25 miles west of Joliet. See you're a northsider...interesting. See, I root for both baseball teams...I was leaning Cubs til I was dating my ex-g/f who was a vendor at the Cellar. Was returning to form after that relationship but the whole Sammy thing and then my new g/f being a Cardinals fan has kept me attached to my pale hose.
