The Lyrics

I'll eventually do the entire "Who's Next" album, so I can't leave out one of the greatest rock songs ever written, even if it's been overdone.
We'll be riding our new bike
Or to get there we will hike
For the gallons that we gobbled will be gone
For the fossil fuel's finite
And our leaders weren't too bright
All the wars over oil were all wrong

I'll leave my home in my newly poor nation
Slip on shoes as my new transportation
Walk and run like the folks all around
Look at my old car today
Useless as a sleigh
Then I look at my trucks and say
They won't get fueled again

The loss, it had to come
We burned it for so long
There were more cars here than people in the States
And the world gave us it's all
Until we hit the wall
Racing banners used to fly, now it's too late

It's hard to roam in my fuely-poor nation
Slip on skates as my new transportation
Walk and run like the folks all around
Look at my old car today
Useless as a sleigh
Then I look at my boat and say
They won't get fueled again

No go!

I'll move myself and my family inside
The big motor home that we used to drive
It just might protect us from the acid rain sky
And I know that the oil corporations lie!
Screw ya!

No traffic in the street
No headlights are there to see
And the wagons are all powered by a horse
There are scooters on the left
There are bikers on the right
And we're all a lot more healthy here, of course

I'll leave my home in my cruelly poor nation
Slip on skates as my new transportation
Walk and run like the folks all around
Look at my old car today
Useless as a sleigh
Then I look at my vans and say
They won't get fueled again

No go!

Vrrrrooooooooommmmm! (Sung, naturally)

Meet the new fuel
Looks like an old mule

I find it creepy that this parody could be true if we aren't careful. This one's a surefire 5.

Yeah, here's hoping we don't read this one in a few years' time and say "wow, wasn't that prophetic"... Nice one, Rick.
