​Kerosene

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album Bottle Rockets (1993).

Ever see that damn thing, that burned out shell
For a little while that trailer must a seemed like hell

If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline

Kids wore rags, he never worked too much
Who's the judge to decide how this world can punish

If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline

Now the welfare check won't pay for the electricity
Wonder who the jury was decided they were all guilty

If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline

Fire started 'bout 3am you know none of 'em would survive
They hated that goddamn trailer so it burnt 'em up alive

If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline

In a pure perfect world that tells no lies,
Burn you down you try to... improvise

If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline
