The Lyrics

DKTOS? Click HERE for a Youtube video of Carol King's "So Far Away"

The car will stay...
Don't have any money to go no place anymore,
It would be so fine to get some taste of "gas war".
So rotten hell they blow, raised by dimes each day.
Cannot go to beach or zoo or cruise the hood,
If my gas hog Benz could only run on wood.
I'm so pissed at crude...and so my car will stay.

No more throngs of cars movin' along the highway,
Can't see much of anything on the move.
But I can only park this ride on drive-way,
Be no "custom blend" 'til the price improves.

So the car does stay...
They shouldn't let those NASCAR guys go race anymore.
It seems such a crime to waste that gas on such bore.
And drive like hell they go, with the gas this way.
yeah-e-ay, while my car must stay.

Traveling is down, I miss my friends, I'm lonely,
They can't seem to get enough refined.
They sure roped the road and now they own me.
Their plots and their schemes; we let this cri-ime?

So parked my car will stay...
Bustin' all my money pays for my gas at the store,
It would be so fine to drill that space that's off shore.
ANWR doesn't help if no can we drill away.
yeah-e-ay, should start right away,
Hey, still my car does stay.

Enjoyed it...if a bit melancholy. Good job

Alvin - Thanks - it is a bit of a "Classical Gas" at that now isn't it. If these prices keep hiking up I won't be able to pay attention, let alone the fuel bill.

2Eagle - Thanks - There's no fuel like an old fuel.

M'Lady - I was so hoping someone would light upon the NASCAR ref. It has to be the most boring spectator sport on the planet - several hours of all left turns while consuming several six packs - I guess the beer helps with the boredom.

Pip - Glad you approve and I see you laughed your gas off.

Jeff - I could sit here and bidge about it or I could get a bit pro-active and work out the frustration in the form of a parody. Thanks.

'Uncle NASCAR' is actually a guy I grew up with, who is an amateur, so we get the scoop from him, or his Mother. And I do agree with you on NASCAR racing; i've never attended them, the Noise alone would kill me! But my Bro-in-Law always has it on TV, so I get to hear about the racers: Dale Jr & JeffyG both nice guys! It's good macho fun, if you can tolerate the noise & boys!

M'Lady - I gathered from your previous comment that you were exposed to NASCAR in some fashion. Uncle NASCAR - heh heh. I think the only reason I would watch them is the same reason I watch a lot of TRU TV and that is for all the car wrecks on shows like "Disorderly" and "World's Wildest Police Chases". Anyway it makes for easy company allowing for minimum attention and maximum entertainment while I'm writing parody or surfing on my laptop and it beats the heck out of all the reruns - even the ones I've never seen before.
