The Lyrics

My second anti-gas fiasco song in one day...hey let's start arevolution!
Can't start me up
Can't start me up until I make a quick pit stop
Can't start me up
Can't start me up because the tank has just one drop
I've been running out
It's got me ticking gonna blow my top
Can't start me up
Can't start me up I'm outta gas
I gotta stop, gotta stop, gotta stop, gotta stop

It makes a grown man cry
It makes a grown man cry
It makes a grown man cry
I'm out of oil and gasoline
I can't afford to feed this mean,mean machine

Can't start me up,
It's not the starter I'm just outta gas, outta gas, outta gas
We can't compete all the drivers cars are all on "E"
If you fill me up, fill my tank up I won't have enough to eat,
'nuff to eat, 'nuff to eat, 'nuff to eat

Don't make a grown man cry
Don't make a grown man cry
Don't make a grown man cry
My stomach groans, my belly aches
Give me some greasy fries and service station Tastykakes
(Can't start me up..)

Can't start me up,
Can't start me up gotta give me more than what I got,
You got to pump me up and never stop,
Start me up--hoo! Put the nozzle in and leave it there, leave it there,
leave it there, leave it there!

They make a grown man cry
They make a grown man cry
They make a grown man cry
Ride like a wimp on my 5-speed
Coz there's no money left after I fill my SUV!
Can't start me up,
Love the day this gas fiasco finally stops, finally stops,finally stops, finally stops,
Toughen up, you got to toughen up and fight the system never stop,
never stop, never stop..
You,you, you make a grown man cry
Hey,hey--I'll be a dead man soon
Hey,hey--I'll be a dead man soon

Good parody!

Pretty good...I wish you did something different with the "don't make a grown man cry" refrain, though.
