The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

You cruise on to the highway,
Like you are driving a Sherman tank.
Your hand strategically grips your Starbucks cup.
Your facial expression's blank.
You have one eye in the mirror as
You merge and pull your rank.
And all the while, you just chat on your cell phone,
Chat on your cell phone, and...

(Chorus)
You waste gas... because you think the world is about you.
You waste gas... because you think the world is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You had a van several years ago,
And your gas consumption grew.
Then you saw SUV's that were bigger still,
And you had to have one, too.
'Cause some things just mattered more than fuel,
And one of them was you!
Energy woes? They're just clouds in your coffee,
Clouds in your coffee and...

You waste gas... because you think the world is about you.
You waste gas... because you think the world is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Well, I hear you drove up to Saratoga, and your car used thirty tanks.
Then you drove on further up to Nova Scotia
To catch that funny new film with Tom Hanks,
Well, you're driving somewhere all the time,
And when you do you shout,
"Hey! Look at me, folks. I'm really important. Really important!" and...

You waste gas... because you think the world is about you.
You waste gas... because you think the world is about you
Don't you? Don't you?
(repeat chorus and fade)
