The Lyrics

"Cocaine" may be one of the 10 most parodied songs, but with the summer quickly coming to a close, I couldn't let this topic go by...
If you want to cook out, you just can't live without
If you beers are all downed, beef is all ground
Grill don't fry, Grill don't fry, Grill don't fry,

If your power is out , don't wanna go eat out
When you hate briquettes, and mesquite upsets
You must buy, You must buy, You must buy

If George Foreman's passé, and it's Labor Day
Burgers, hot dogs, or steak, spare ribs or meat that's fake
Try rib-eye, not stir-fry, tofu's dry

Hank hill would sing lead with Dale and Bill singing background. Boomhauer could do instrument noises.

Enjoyed this one. If your tank's out of gas, And you're freezing your ass, Propane. 555.

I don't know what inspired you to come up with Propane but believe it or not around 2001, I had a chance meeting with Eric Clapton at the Apple Pan and suggested the title to him as we were talking about the fact that due to his abstinence he no longer performed Cocaine on tour.
