When no one but the filthy rich could afford gas

the poor went to fighting over the length of grass

I've got the worlds tallest blades said a man next door

I use mine for shade I know that much for sure

Call the world book of records and let them see

for no one has a blade of grass taller than me

Oh yeah said the neighbor on the other side

Why the blades in my back yard touch the sky

Can't mow it so show it and be oh so proud

said a woman as her grass waved in a cloud

Till the price of gas drops all's going to hell

said the sheriff as he hauled her off to a cell

The rich got richer for they had a brilliant plan

they hired mowers to charge all over the land

A fee for removing each blade of grass by the bale

and if you couldn't afford it you went to jail

Everyone had a record and it was a shame

because of gas prices it will never be the same

It's bad that you have to walk clear across town

cause you can't afford gas for nothing that gets around

Can't mow it so show it and be oh so proud

said a woman as her grass waved in a cloud

Till the price of gas drops all's going to hell

said the sheriff as he hauled her off to a cell
