Lyrics:
There's only so much oil in the ground
Sooner or later there won't be much around
Tell that to your kids while you're driving downtown
That there's only so much oil in the ground

Can't cut loose without that juice
Can't cut loose without that juice
If we keep on like we doing things for sure
Will not be cool - It's a fact
We just ain't got sufficient fuel

There's only so much oil in the ground
Sooner or later there won't be none around
Alternate sources of power must be found
'Cause there's only so much oil in the ground

There's only so much oil in the earth
It's a fact of life - for what it's worth
Something every little boy and little girl
Should know since birth - that there's
Only so much oil in the earth

There's no excuse for our abuse
No excuse for our abuse
We just assume that what we use will not
Exceed the oil supply
But soon enough the world will watch the wells run dry

{tenor sax solo}

There's no excuse for our abuse
No excuse for our abuse
We just assume that what we use will not
Exceed the oil supply
But soon enough the world will watch the wells run dry

There's only so much oil in the ground
Sooner or later there won't be much around
Tell that to your kids while you're driving downtown
That there's only so much oil in the ground

There's only so much oil in the earth
Sooner than you think there's gonna
Be a heavy - duty dearth
Then there won't be too much time for
No merriment or mirth -
'Cause there's only so much oil in the earth

Can't cut loose without that juice
Can't cut loose without that juice
If we keep on like we doing things for sure
Will not be cool - It's a fact
We just ain't got sufficient fuel
