The Lyrics

CNN Reporter - ''Yes , gas prices have doubled since last week , it looks like it's going to get worse , before it gets better.''
There must be some issues debating ,
There must be some problem at stake.
I waited in the lane , for hours , and what's the rate?

Now it's not like me to misuse gasoline ,
but my engine's old , and refueling to go.
I checked my filter twice , didn't understand it , so I went home.

Well I've been waiting , all this weekend.
I thought that maybe it'd go down for sure.
Never dreamed how much we need it ,
ah but , CNN says , 'Believe it.'

That's why I'm home tonight , the economy's not looking bright...

The gas prices are now inflating ,
there must be some kind of debate.
Iraq's taking everything from out us , and we just wait...

Since then , I've been driving around , to get by through.
I head to the places , that I need to go.
I ran to Shell , and got regular.
Walked through the door , saw the man there.
Still don't believe it...$21.50!

Oh there must be some issues debating ,
there must be some problems at stake.
The gas prices are now inflating ,
seems we'll go ahead and get what we take...

The gas price uh , the gas price uh oh...
is now inflating.

The gas price uh , the gas price oh uh...
is now inflating.

( Repeat till it fades out )
