Wrong Number

Gasoline burns hotter than hell

And using it causes climate change

There are plenty of signs that

Earth is preparing humanity for an

Extinction level event

In the bible there's a revelation

That warns about the apocalypse

I look at today's gas prices

$6.06 per gallon

It's getting close to $6.66

Then it will be too late to prep

The anti-Christ will push the pedal

To the metal with the ghost of Lemmy

Riding shotgun

And all Hell will break loose like

An obese woman's spandex

After midnight on a shopping trip 

For a large pair of crotchless panties 

At the local Wal-Mart Superstore.
