The Lyrics

Don't you hate being stranded out in the desert without any water? That's just the worst! (Includes Garth Brooks' later added 3rd verse)
The sand wrecked my new suit
This sure is a hoot
Trapped out in this dry desert air
Could use a cold Coke
My Jeep's engine smoked
Cooked by this hot sun
I'm no longer rare
Then a sight caught my eyes
There's a beach paradise
With coconuts grasped by hot babes
My mind's roasted, True
But buddy, I dug this view
Some cold water's splashed in my face!

But I just glimpsed... An oasis...
I swallowed a pound
That sand's abrasive with a bad taste
Went to my waist
I saw beer in several cases
Now I have cactus spikes stuck in my braces
Since I just glimpsed... An Oasis!

Shoveled dirt on my tongue
Those green needles stung
Plus now I need a drink to pour
Please serve me a Sprite
That's chilled off with ice
Do not like the taste of the sho-ore
I'm refried like beans
Need tons of sunscreen
My forehead's a shower of sweat
Then what caught my eye
Was ice cream to devour
I scooped it all in!!!

But I just glimpsed... An Oasis...
All those ice cream cones
Were hard and tasteless and my teeth ache
Those rocks didn't break
Don't know how I was mistaken
But that Coldstone was a HUGE temptation!
Since I just glimpsed... An Oasis!

[The Mystical Third Verse]
Think my brain is flawed
When downing dirt clods
Spotted a general store
There's ice cold Pepsi inside
But since my mind's fried
That's one sight I'm gonna ignore
Puddles I've seen are to be believed
So I'm gulping water at last
These folks think I'm crazy
As they suck down their Surge
From that place that I passed!
