Devo

Devo ( /ˈdiːvoʊ/, originally /diːˈvoʊ/) is an American punk rock/New Wave band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band includes two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It", and has maintained a cult following throughout its existence. Their style over time has shifted between punk, art rock, post-punk, and New Wave. Their music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor, and mordantly satirical social commentary. Their often discordant pop songs feature unusual synthetic instrumentation and time signatures that have proven influ… more »

Well my fraulein done told me 
When I was in goosesteps. 
She said I would gas them 
And now I'm a big man
Filling up autos 
That beep at me often 
I drop what I'm doing 
And wait on them cheerfullv 
Some choose the big pump 
And other's the small
It's a small small world 
And I hear 'dem autos call 
Well I'm a big time pumper 
And I pump'em full of my gas 
And if you give me static 
I'll tell ya blow it up your ass 
My station is pretty 
I keep it in top shape 
The customers dig me 
'cause I got the answers 
To all of their auto needs 
I fix 'em up often 
And relieve their tension 
'cause no one wants an auto 
That threatens to lose it 
The auto's come crawlin' 
Into my station 
They beep at me always 
I stop what I'm doing 
And greet them with smiles 
I call "fill 'er up?" 
They yell back "one dollar" 
I wipe all the dead bugs 
And dirt off their windshield 
And connect my big hose 
Up to their gas tank 
The gas hums as it enters 
And fulls up their empty tank 
I do two at a time now 
I've developed a technique 
My timing is very good 
If not always precise 
I give them a fair deal 
They drive off satisfied 
We need each other's business 
Without which we could not survive 
We like to trade money- 
Because it means honor, 
Not like those people 
Who are sick and can't touch it 
Because they're unhealthy, 
They leave me cold. 
I help who I can help 
And feel nothing for those who 
Don't come to my station 
For I'll only tow those who 
Show me their honor 
I can't help evervbody 
And I'm not my brother's keeper 
We huddle together 
And those who come to me 
We huddle together 
And despite the weather 
We find strength in our circle 
I'm very important 
To the big and the little guy 
We all need each other 
To keep ourselves going 
Their auto's all need me 
My pump's need their empty tanks and 
If the good lord is willing 
We shall be here to the end 
Pumping-each-other
