I’ve been waiting for years to buy a brand new cadillacBut now that I’ve got one I want to send it right backI can’t afford the gas to fill my luxury limousineBut even if I had the dough no one’s got no gasolineI went to my local dealer to see if he could set me straightHe said there’s a little gas going but I’d have to waitBut he offered some red hot speed and some really high grade hashBut a gallon of gas can’t be purchased anywhere for any amount of cashI can score you some coke and some grade one grassBut I can’t get a gallon of gasI’ve got some downers some speed all the drugs that you needBut I can’t get a gallon of gasThere’s no more left to buy or sellThere’s no more oil left in the wellA gallon of gas can’t be purchased anywhereFor any amount of cashTwo extra verses from long version:I love your body-work, but you’re really no useHow can I drive you when I got no juice? Because it’s stuck in neutral and my engine’s got no speedAnd the highways are desertedAnd the air smells unnaturally clean.It’s got power-assisted overdrive and carpets on the floor,But it’s parked out front just like a dead dinosaur.And I’ll be paying off the bank for 45 years or more.It should go 100 miles an hour,But it’s never moved away from my door.Who needs a car and a seven-forty-sevenWhen you can’t buy a gallon of gasWho needs a highway, an airport or a jetWhen you can’t get a gallon of gasThere’s no more left to buy or sellThere’s no more oil left in the wellA gallon of gas can’t be purchased anywhereFor any amount of cashYou can’t buy a gallon of gas
