Driving Our Teslas
Or
Got The: It costs as much as a small condo, Blues

by Rick Tornello

The difference between then and between now:
livin in our slick urban townhouse ghet-toe
(we’re clean we’re green)
We’re electrified and we… are… so…so… satisfied.
Sacrifices made, butt that’s the price we paid.

Bethesda you ask?
No, not a chance.
The mortgages too high and so is the rent.
Butt we drive our Tesla, and yes, we live in a tent.

(Better than a trailer park,
We’re leaving our green foot mark)

Butt we’re driving our Tesla (livin in a tent)
Don’t cost much money (livin in a tent).
Taxes? a lot cheaper with a slit trench and a tent.

Got a 60 amp service commin off of a pole
a statement so proud, a statement so bold.
Then sittin right next to our tent and our trench,
so it won’t get wet, it won’t get so cold,
the charger’s stuffed, ha! in a watertight hold.

(Better than a trailer park,
We’re leaving our green foot mark)

We get our heat off from the sun and when it’s not
reverse-flow-runs-the-batteries-down a whole lot.
Then our range?
It decrease, a fact you can bet.
But we’re driving our Tesla,
and freeze in our tent.

(Better than a trailer park,
We’re leaving our green foot mark)
