The Lyrics

This gas situation is not a gas,gas,gas man--let's get Jumpin' Jack Flash after them too!
If they're gouging gas in your neighborhood
Who you gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)
Now the government well it ain't no good
Who you gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)

I won't pay for this gas!
I won't pay for this gas!

Well we fought a war for the price of oil
Who ya gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)
To get ahead ya gotta be a Royal
Who ya gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)

I ain't payin' for this!
I ain't payin' for this!

Who ya gonna call
(GASBUSTERS!)
If you're near an oil well
Pick up your cell
And call--
(GASBUSTERS!)

Well Katrina came
FEMA's to blame
Who ya gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)
Well this price of crude is downright lewd
Who ya gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)

4 bucks a gallon for gas?!
4 bucks a gallon my ass!
Who ya gonna call?
(GASBUSTERS!)

If you've had the last of this freakin' gas
Maybe you'd better call
(GASBUSTERS!)

Let me tell you something
Bustin' them makes me feel good

Don't pay at the pump, oh no
(GASBUSTERS)
Just park your car on the Interstate
Cause gridlock hate
(GASBUSTERS!)
Just ride your bike or perhaps hitchhike
Let's all get psyched for--
(GASBUSTERS!)

Who you gonna call
(GASBUSTERS!)
Who you gonna call
(GASBUSTERS!)
Ah, I think you better call
(GASBUSTERS!)...

Jim, check my song "No Driving Your Car With Hooch, Ma'm". Four USD per gallon isn't that atrocious a price - on this side of the pond it is EUR 1:50 per liter, which is some USD 7.30 per US gallon. Of course some 50% of the price is taxes.

Myself being an American car driver (Dodge Ram van), I would rather dri ve the car with ethanol brewed and distilled from domestic waste and food leftovers. Unfortunately, our government has outlawed such practise as tax fraud.

E-85 (85% white lightning, 15% liquid hydrocarbons) is comparable to 95 octane gasoline. Most of all, it would be completely domestic and liberate us from being dependent on imported oil. The Arabs should begin to learn to drink their oil :)
