The Opinuary Column


let me tell you a little somethin'
about that world you love
that world has gone away, baby
as soon as push came to shove

we got a habit
we got a need
let the world die
let the world bleed

oh, that oil, it sure is slick
it do so much, it is the trick
burn in the morning
burn it at night
light up the ocean
light it up right
oh, that oil, light it up right

fill up the tank, baby
shake your head and scoff
when it fills you up
it gets you off

we need it daily
we need it now
never mind the where
never mind the how

god up in heaven
man down in hell
drop in your bucket
way down the well

when it comes back
look right inside
the devil ain't lonely
when you let it ride

oh, that oil, it sure is slick
it do so much, it is the trick
burn in the morning
burn it at night
light up the ocean
light it up right
oh, that oil, light it up right

drive little johnny
all the way to school
drive his old lady
like nobody's fool

we got a product
that everyone needs
stick in the needle
everyone bleeds

oh, this is hopeless
what can you do
everyone usin'
everyone blue

oh, that oil, it sure is slick
it do so much, it is the trick
burn it in the morning
burn it at night
light up the ocean
light it up right
oh, that oil, light it up right

let me tell you a little somethin'
about that world you love
that world has gone away, baby
as soon as push came to shove

I'm feeling Muddy tonight...
