The Lyrics

This is about the gas prices in Fort Wayne. I just think that since we're in Iraq then why don't we put the oil to good use. If noit Iraq, then why not Alaska. This gas price crap hasta' stop.
Now the people told the president
You gotta let that war stop now,
Get oil from the USA,
Or let's get some from Iraq.
The gas prices tear down the shack,
Now I am walking to save cash,
My Chevy is immobile,
No more sitting on my ass.


Get oil from Alaska,
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.
Get the oil from Iraq, now.
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.

By order of the station,
The price never goes down.
Goes up to 2.63,
Keeps going all around.
But the Premium I buy now,
Need 30 bucks to bum.
The local gas station dude's,
He doing my gas pump,
As soon as the gas price.
Had got to three,
We begin to wail.

Get oil from Alaska,
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.
Get the oil from Iraq, now.
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.

Now down there in fort Wayne,
Oh! They really jack 'em high.
The prezie says it's cool
But we know it's a lie.
But as the oil on Iraqi soil,
The oil rigs take lots,
They need to share the wealth,
Or I'll be dishing shots.

Get oil from Alaska,
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.
Get the oil from Iraq, now.
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.

The prez called up his oil diggers
He said you send the wealth our way,
Send us cash to the government,
High gas price all day.
As soon as the oil rig was
Drilling out the land,
The oil riggers tuned to
The dude that's in command.
As soon as the oil rig was
Outta the land
The USA wailed

Get oil from Alaska,
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.
Get the oil from Iraq, now.
Drop the gas price,
Drop the gas price.

We want that damn oil,
Economically they can't take it..
You know naturalists hate it.

Excellent parody, STG...but I've got to take issue with your take on the subject. The US has the lowest gas prices in the civilised world, and creates by far the highest level of harmful emissions. Yes, we all LOVE our cars, but if we're going to completely screw the earth (which we will do) then we should be paying top dollar for the privilege. If you guys had to pay what we do here in the UK, (2.5 times what you pay) you'd really have something to whine about....

A rockin' rant.

DKTOS, but agree with Kristof. Automobile manufacturers already have the ability to make cars that get 60 MPG ( non hybrids, no wheezy 3 and 4 cylinders either ) and make em last nearly forever. They don't because they wouldn't sell many cars if the latter was done. **WHEN** I win that $350M dollar lottery, I will start my own car company and build ya one. :)
