The Lyrics

For those non-Yanks out there, an explanation of the phrase "People do." Chevron has put out a number of environmentally friendly TV commercials using this phrase; ie: "...do people really build reefs with used oil drums so rare fish can have a place to spawn? People do..."
Well when I pulled up to the station
I was driving with my gas-gauge stuck on 'E'
Take a look at that petrol price - it ain't nice
For my guzzling SUV

The gas is too high high high
My cash is gone
I'll see my wallet getting' flatter
Gonna rocket skyward - only just begun

It's gettin' too high high high
I'm tellin' you son
Just raise my eyes to the sky and I sigh
The old days are gone

They're gonna screw it to ya,
Gonna screw you when you gotta
Be getting' that gas
It's gettin' too high high high
It is rising fast

Well well it is the war?
Or is it just the guys at Chevron?
They probably lie anyway
"People do" - it's such greedy con

They're gonna screw it to ya,
Gonna screw you when you gotta
Be getting' that gas
Need a Yugo - cut the gas flow
Fill 'er up until you're outta cash

It's gettin' too high high high
And you're gonna pay
Need a bi bi bi bi bi bi bi bi-
Cycle now today

They're gonna screw it to ya,
Gonna screw you when you gotta
Be getting' that gas
It's gettin' too high high high
It's gettin' too high high high
It's gettin' too high high high
It's gone in a flash

Ooh Esso* oh oh oh oh oh (etc.)

High high high
High high high
High high high
It's a kick-in-ass!

You know, before I posted mine, I was looking for this, couldn't find it with a search. I sort of remembered seeing it, and I know I would have voted, being the fab four fan. I wonder why I had trouble. Now I know I forgot the end part on mine.
