The Lyrics

Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Oh Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Need a gold mine when drivin'..in this ole gas hog heap..

I saw Gasoline at the top of the hill
Prayin' I can make it, don't b'lieve I will
I hear that engine sputter 'fore I reach the crest
Big old Oldsmobile won't pass the test
I'm hurtin for money, it ain't my day
Gotta' lotta' horsepower, have to feed it hay..

Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Oh Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Need a gold mine when drivin'.. in this ole gas hog heap..

Lean up behind it, push the rest of the way
Little cars a' whizzin' by, smart ass things to say
When I see the hood's over the hump
Hop in my seat, roll up to the pump
Thank you Lord for credit cards..
Like Gen'ral Custer, I holler, "Charge!"

Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Oh Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Need a gold mine when drivin'...in this ole gas hog heap..

Back on the road again, now with a fresh full tank
Around a curve I think I hear a clank
Sky's gettin' cloudy, and it's startin' to rain
These darn smooth tires are messin' with my brain
I pull on over checkin' under the hood
The tie rod thingy doesn't look too good

Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Oh Gasoline, why can'tcha' be cheap?
Need a gold mine when drivin'...in this old gas hog heap..

Cal sun's about down, it's gettin' dark
I look at the ocean, see a shark
Shift her down to low and hang a mountain climb
Eight cyclinders ping like a church clock chime
Well, I fin'lly reach the summit just before the bridge
Shove this bucket a' bolts off a' "Lookout Ridge"

Gasoline, won't needja' no more
Oh Gasoline, won't needja' no more
Switchin' back to thumb hitchin'...to win that gas price war !

Switchin' back to thumb hitchin'...to win that gas price war !

(Sit where? in the back with the hogs? Sure, thanks)

To Huff: you don't have to use the password feature, but the security code listed, must be typed in each time....
