The Lyrics

Below Average Dave has every intention of keeping his parodies free, however financially it is difficult to do so without some assistance. I have a brand new radio show which will air live on 365 coming January of 2011, this album is to commemorate that show and to raise money for costs which are going to be hard for me to pay without fan support. Enjoy my first ever full length parody album. For a hard copy version, please let me know you are interested and I'll tell you how to get one. They will eventually be posted to and the like, at that time you can get it there!
See the prices, the gas prices
Increase mile after mile
As you travel to see your dear grandma
No use whining, Mid-East smiling
Cash in pile after pile
And at ev'ry gas station--the same

Oil Gouge
Oil Gouge
From Thanksgiving through to New Years
Travelers gouged out their pay

First they choke us, hocus pocus
Claims Supply and Demand
but the supply's been up since September
While you're gassing, execs stashing
What you earned all the while
And you've got nothing to do but pay there

Oil Gouge
Oil Gouge
Cannot fight it--what a pity
Price rising
Bring solar cars to the plate!

Highways filled up
Airports whassup
Take our money oh dear
Can you give us a break please this winter
Savings falling
Cars are crawling
I've been waiting awhile
But all I can do is pay it I fear

Oil Gouge
Oil Gouge
Holiday time at the gas pump
Owners sing
We'll make a butt load each day

We'll make a butt load each day

I just went though all of your Holiday songs and I need to say that I'm impressed. I hope you earn enough with this to start your radio show. Looking forward to it buddy. I hope you're able to do that whole day long countdown thing again that you did a few years ago because I had to work and I missed most of that.

The countdown will be back so long as I am able to afford to keep the show going all year, more details on all this to come closer to time, right now parts are still being worked out. Thank you very much Matthias, based on the sales this album has gotten so far, I'm very happy to say that I have some loyal fans. . .I didn't know just how loyal until I released this album, but it warms my heart to know that people enjoy my work enough to purchase an album, and it makes me want to work even harder on my second Christmas Album, and the upcoming original song albums I have planned. . .not to mention the regular almost weekly parodies I release as free downloads. . .you all are fantastic!

Despite strong initial sales, anyone who needs a gag-gift or would like to have my collection and can afford it, let me know. . .for $5 plus shipping and handling I can send the real copy which includes 8 other songs that made major headway this year as a bonus on top of the official 12 tracks listed. It will be available on my site,, very soon and is already on some other sites including Soundclick as an mp3 download. Every sale helps support not only my music, but the year and counting work of the new Bad Ave site that is getting extremely close to done. . .as well as a new radio show coming up probably in early January (possibly very early) that will be LIVE on Live365!!!
