The Lyrics

Straight into the self-serve lane my small Ford sails
Takes sixty-five dollars to fill it, not normal
It's gas cap, rich oils guys, fat tails
All the folks with hose in hand, I hear their wails
We're just pawns in their paws to keep driving,
It's gas cap, rich oil guys, fat tails

I'm puttin' on my gas cap,
Thinkin' 'bout rich oil guys
Sittin' on fat tails

I'm diggin' in my wallet,
Pullin' out the "Twenties"
While complexion pales..

It's out of hand, I fear
All that we're spendin' here,
A travesty, Alas!
We go bust
While those rich oil guys just
Keep gougin' up the gas..

We're suckers here,
Puttin' on the gas cap,
Thinkin' 'bout rich oil guys,
Laughin' on fat tails..

Ask Chucky G to correct your name for you so this is credited to you AFW. . .it often amazes me how much you can pack in such a short song, hadn't heard this OS since the early 90s when we threw a surprise Birthday Party for my Great Grandmother--I actually enjoyed this kind of music and thanks to my Great Grandmother (who is still alive and kickin) I have a taste for just about every decade of music dating back to the 40s

Sir, L'Air de Farce, ~The Royal Duke o'Edge~ This really moves, and it is quite a delight to read, inspite of the rather annoying subject matter of gas prices . . .

A fine tale. Security code is CYA, and the A in that acronym stands for tail.
