Twas the Night Before Mardi Gras

Twas the night before Mardi Gras, and all throughout town
People were gathering, and partying down.
T-Boy was hanging out with his friend T'frere
And knocking back Natty Light without a care.
The children were running throughout the hall
With Tauntie yelling, "GO OUTSIDE, Y'ALL!"
Bernadette was drinking a strawberry daiquiri
While visiting with her sister who was down from Hackberry.
When down from the corner came such a sight
It was the po-po, flashing their blue lights
T'frere jumped up with a flash
"T-Boy! There's been a crash!"
The two friends ran down to the scene
And out from the wreckage crawled ol' Eugene
Now, that Eugene, sha, he was blitzed
He looked at his Oldsmobile, and boy he was pissed!
"Stand down!" yelled out the po-po
But that Eugene spun round and round like at a fais do-do
"T'frere, what the hell is this?"
"T-Boy, I think he's winding up his fist!"
Sure 'nuff, like a Popeye cartoon


Set to the tune of Sussudio, the following is a song that I have been piecing together since I began using the Fuelio app to record the Turtle's gas consumption. It was difficult to draw out all the appropriate words in written style, so I have italicized the ones that should be draggggeedd out.

Exxon Mobil has been on my mind
It's that time - Fu-Fu-Fuelio
Oh oh
Now, they don't even know my name
But they take my money all the same

Oh oh

Millions of locations - there's one right there!
I can drive up annneeeewwhhheeeerrreeeee!

Oh oh

Fuel is what my Turtle needs to run fine
I know it's time when I see the light
Fu-Fu-Fuelio - I see the light!
Oh, Fu-Fu-Fuelio

The fuel light's blinking, urgently
Now the race is ooooonnnnnnnn

Oh oh
Ooh give me a sign
'no-ethanol' works just fine
I pull in right in time
Oh oh

Ah, I've got to pump, to pump gas now
The classic over squeeze I must avoid
Go 'head, relea…
