The Lyrics

oil lights are on, when you're not home
arabian, it's not our own
the stock bets, the price is blown
you curse the truck your woman owns

you can't sleep, with no heat
it's all out, except deep,
the drillin's right, what we need
a gusher lid, a pipeline feed

whoa you think that you can do without it, oh yeah,
what's closer to the truth is we have always been spolied
Bush might as well say it we're addicted to oil

you see the signs, two dollars , three
you drive so slow, save gas at speed
your big car, needs more this time
another fill, from arab mines, a one track mine

will we be saved
nuclear is what we crave
if there's some oil here for me
can I buy it duty free?


whoa you think that you can do without it, oh yeah,
what's closer to the truth is we have always been spolied
Bush might as well say it we're addicted to oil
Bush might as well say it we're addicted to oil
Bush might as well say it we're addicted to oil
Bush might as well say it we're addicted to oil
Bush might as well say it we're addicted to oil

wowsers, Malky, fresh from the headlines! Very good! 555

And what about taxing the oil companies' windfall profits they earned from price gouging since Katrina, then giving it back to the taxpayers as a rebate? What about federal tax incentives for buying hybrid cars and solar heating panels? These are not new ideas. Why did it take 30 years after the first oil crisis for a US president to finally come around?

Very good but isn't this missing a verse? There are a truckload of somewhat to highly viable alternatives to fossil fuels. The biggest plus of them all IMO is that we don't have to rely on the Middle East for any of them.

another good one. Time to start thinking about horses and buggies and oh yes...bicycles. Personally, it will be a cold day in Kenya before I'll ever own another car and all the headaches that go with it. 555

Hmmm... I wonder whether Pacholek's going to give up his vehicles as his whore carol claims she's going to do. Incidentally, carol, some of that house current you're using to run your computer comes from oil, too. Maybe you should give up your electricity (and your computer). The world certainly would be a better place if only libtards would give up everything of theirs that's based on fossil fuels, such as computers, plastic products, machinery, and their own employment (and/or unemployment benefits). Of course, they'd all be naked and starving and out on the street, but that's where they are already, except for the "starving" part.

Yeah, Bush might as well state it: we need oil, and unfortunately for us, the oil's in hostile countries that want every last man, woman, and child of us dead. The really stunning part of all libtard idiocy is how they're still screaming and ranting and raving and frothing at the mouth about how Bush's war is "all for oil" even after they've seen the oil prices climb to $60 a barrel and denounced him for... not getting them enough oil! Hey, libtards, when are you going to follow carol's example and go back to horse-and-carriage rides? Those Amish folks are pretty decent people, and I'm sure they'd be glad to fix you up with an agrarian lifestyle. Good luck getting modern health care, though: that stuff's all based on oil products too.

Nice song, Malcom: truthful, if not exactly funny. If Canada (currently test-driving Tories) will let a nuclear company pump hot steam into its oil sands, though, there might just be a little price break coming for us all.

5s, very good, I think G.W. Bush did say this country is addicated to oil in his speech(which I didn't watch, but read on a news and weather channel).

Bring in the hydrogen, hydroelectric, wind power, solar panels, and geothermal energy sources! It does not make all the sense in the world using nonrenewable energy, especially since it takes two barrels of oil to mine one.

111--your name calling and attacking along with your pathetic ratings show your brain dead mentality. Drop dead whore.
dude - February 03, 2006 - Report this comment
111 - you mean Canada is a hostile country? the US gets more oil from them than any of the countries you seem to suggest. Truly, you couldn't be dumber. We all figured that out when you began the name calling "libtard" is sooo 1998, get with the times.

Ain't it always the way: whenever you think an idea's a bit obvious, someone else has done it already: but I reckon mine's different enough to be worth posting, too...
It's funny, though, that someone posting such brainless twaddle as 111 above isn't even brave enough to use his own name.
