The Lyrics

They drive them down the market stands
The distance: 50 metres
Lazy and out in cars all day,
jam up the town completely
Squinting faces sat inside
their brand new four wheel off road tank
drivers on the road nearby
think "not gonna tangle with that"

But here's what you can say
My thinking's not discrete:
"Environment can go to hell"
Parading round in my S.U.V
Picking Esso over Shell

Fuel economy's an old
reason for purchase today
that mountain-climbing-sized horsepower
to the shop again
You wish you had more fuel to go
That tank won't take you very far
the driver may be off their bed
it doesn't matter with these cars

But here's what you can say
My thinking's not discrete:
"Environment can go to hell"
Parading round in my S.U.V
Picking Esso over Shell

Two fat drivers rarely stop
at the lights in city streets
to gas station one more time
some diesel again if you please
The coach drivers stand about
wait for them to fill their tank
they need a bigger one these days
- as big as a caravan

But here's what you can say
My thinking's not discrete:
"Environment can go to hell"
Parading round in my S.U.V
Picking Esso over Shell

Good one Jim A. Your Britishness is showing. In the US it's Exxon, not Esso.
