A Pre Prius World
Tom Demarest 6/21/08

Acapella Intro:
Now the world’s getting’ greener as emissions get cleaner
You can barely hear the hybrids roll by!
Sure as cactus is cacti and fungus is fungi
We all better start drivin’ “Prii”?

Verse I:
I
Back in a Pre Prius World, Friday night meant drivin’ with your steady girl
IV I
Call it “Cruzin’ The Strip”, “Draggin’ Main”, or “Toolin’ The Gut”, it was all the same.
I
Chrome was king, loud pipes were good, and if you talked that talk and your bluff was good
IV V I
You could lie about havin’ a turbo under the hood!


Refrain:
I IV I
But now the world’s getting’ greener as emissions get cleaner
I V I
You can barely hear the hybrids roll by!
IV I V I
Sure as cactus is cacti and fungus is fungi we all better start drivin’ “Prii”?


Verse II:
I
Back in those Pre Prius days the corner gas station was a happenin’ place.
IV I
You could talk to the kid & he’d clean all the glass, wave to your friends as they’d honk & pass.
I
The kid would check the oil, top the tank with care, fill up your tires if they needed air.
IV V I
Try and find service like that, now, anywhere!


Verse III:
I
Today they all look the same. The coefficient of drag is the name of the game.
IV I
They all slide through the air, with barely a sound. How could the shape be anything but round?
I
The fins are gone, along with all the chrome and they cost twice as much as your childhood home!
IV V I
Today we “owe our soul to the company” auto loan!
