Gas 'n' Oil (Buddy Wasisname)

Soon as we gets to gas 'n' oil, now how's your boots!
Soon as we gets to gas 'n' oil, now how's your boots!
Two cars in every garage,
The big cigar for every dad!
TV dinner on the stove,
Oh, me nerves, you got me drove!
How's your boots, now how's your boots?

Freddy's always on the front porch, copasetic!
Freddy's always on his front porch, copasetic!
Well his kids will never be spoiled,
While he's waiting for the gas 'n' oil;
But he says she'll boom some day;
Until she do he's goin' to wait!
Not copasetic, not copasetic!

Freddy got the welfare baby bonus guaranteed!
Someday he says were gonna get the UIC!
As soon as we gets the gas 'n' oil,
We all will go to work for a little while;
And when the twenty weeks is in,
We draws the UIC again.
Guaranteed, guaranteed.

Never sees Freddy down at the Manpower, I suppose!
Never sees Freddy down at the Manpower, I suppose!
He says you could go down there,
But you may as well wait up here!
'Cause when the gas 'n' oil comes in, sir,
They'll be up here lookin' for him!
I suppose, I suppose.

So, I'm goin to sit here on the front porch with Freddy,
And when the gas 'n' oil comes in, sir, I'll be ready.
I don't want no boom any how,
We've been without one up until now;
I don't want me children spoiled,
With the waste of gas and oil.
So how's your boots, copasetic, mind now,
I suppose, oh me nerves, you got me drove!
