Gasoline, and Diesel, and Wild, Wild Engines

by Lee Hart

A preachment, dear friends, you're about to receive
On the evils of big oil, big cars, I believe.
Hit it, boys

CHORUS:

Gasoline, and diesel, and wild wild engines
They'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane.
Gasoline, and diesel, and wild wild engines
Quit using 'em now, if you got half a brain.

Once I was happy, and had a good wife.
I made enough money to last me fer life.
Then I bought me a car and we went on a spree
And now I'm addicted to oil, you see.

(CHORUS)

Some say that smokin' and drinkin's a sin
That's nothin' compared to the fix I am in
My smokin' and drinkin's a thousand times worse
But my car does it all; it's a terrible curse!

(CHORUS)

Gasoline is a blight on the whole human race.
Makin' wars and pollution all over the place
We're burnin' our money to poison our land
Makin' terrorists richer, I don't understand.

(CHORUS)

Write on the cross at the head of my grave
To big cars and oil here lies a poor slave.
Take warnin' poor stranger, take warnin' dear friend
If you don't quit 'em now, they'll get you in the end.

(CHORUS)

Hallelujah, brothers!
