"Siphoning Gas Tanks"

Parody Written by:

Lionel Mertens

The Lyrics

He was a Marlborough® Man, who could light up a trashcan
And she was so right up his alley
She pulled up, and he pulled out a gascan
In the bowels of their home town: Raleigh
He performed oral copulation on a fu-el tube
He said it was easy, like sucking her boob
They were working in tandem, a well oiled machine
They were wanton lovers in need of gasoline

Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning gas tanks

Crawling on empty and running off fumes
Their ‘Woody’ was pumping out Steely Dan tunes
They put mud on the back bumper, they took off the front plate
They were a bible-belt couple on a devilish date
There were cars on the shoulder, cars up ahead
He pulled out his line of credit, and pushed his luck to the edge
A car was left sitting, it sat on the right
He was sliding it down while lighting up in the night

Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning gas tanks

Franticly filching, flicking and ash
His hairy conjoined eyebrows, disappeared in a flash
She cried, “oh my goodness, your skin is bubbl-ing!
I hope the cops didn’t see that, that has really gotta sting
He said, “Call my mother, I want my momma’s help”
“Your momma says she’s calling, the cops to turn you in herself”
They left burnin’ up the alley, they couldn’t find a place
The didn’t care they were too busy loosing face

And they were…
Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning gas tanks
Now they call him, ‘TANKENSTIEN’
Siphoning gas tanks

Siphoning gas tanks
Siphoning Gas tanks
