Gas Too High, Life Too Cheap
2008 Bill Gaunce

Politician on the stump
Dollar value in a slump
Workin' man live in a dump
Tax assessment take a jump
War goes on just another bump
President rides on a Camel's hump
mugger's wait for another chump
To rob you blind at the pump
Stump, slump, dump, jump,
Bump, hump, chump. pump
Gas too high
Gas too high

People feeding on a lie
Got no food one reason why
Boys & girls sent off to die
Mother's father's left to cry
Sister's brother's left to try
figure out that by & by
From young dead fingers we will pry
What we need to drive & fly
Lie, why, die, cry
Try, buy, pry, fly
Life too cheap
Life too cheap

How will we know when we have won
The war? all the fighting's done?
Lay down the saber & the gun?
Know when the peace has begun?
Stop counting bodies one by one?
Bring home every mother's son?
And daughter's, loved ones, everyone
And dance again out in the sun?
Gas too high,
Life's too cheap
And I don't have the answer
'Cause no-one knows the answer

Stump, slump, dump, jump,
Bump, hump, chump. pump
Gas too high
Gas too high

Lie, why, die, cry
Try, buy, pry, fly
Life too cheap
And I don't have the answer
'Cause no-one knows the answer
