The Lyrics

Tonight my wife and I were driving on Route 1 in central NJ...gas prices ranged from $2.79 to $3.85 a gallon in a 5-mile area--and when we drove back 2 hours later, some of the prices had gone up. Then I read that $5/gallon is a real possibility, and soon. Insanity. Anyway, in keeping with modes of transportation using alternative fuel, here's a parody of an odd, obscure little ditty from the original pre-fab four...
Tonight I went to fill my car up
Boy, those gas prices sure got steep
I paid, but man, I was seeing red
You know my pockets ain't so deep

I'm gonna buy me a horse (A horse? A horse! Why?)
'cause gas prices are out of reach (Hay is cheap, and I could use a pet)
I'm gonna buy me a horse
And make my car the place where I sleep

I read the news in today's paper
Five bucks a gallon? Holy crap!
I'll miss my car's acceleration
But I can teach a horse to do that

I'm gonna buy me a horse
'cause gas prices are out of reach
I'm gonna buy me a horse
And make my car the place where I sleep
Sleep deep, cheap cheap!

You know what's scary? I remember the OS--very odd indeed, but an appropriate choice for the subject. I hope gas prices stabilize soon! 555
