gassy tune contest!

this is an open challenge!

correctly post the words to the Z-Gas jingle (a propane delivery service that plays a jingle all over town to announce their arrival) and win two neoprene Playa.Info branded bottle wetsuits, suitable for keeping those long-neck Coronas chilly.

(I'll probably make you sing the song in person, just to make sure you didn't cheat)

I'm not good at tunes, but am sure it has frijoles somewhere in the lyrics.

i can't identify the words to that little jingle the Z Gas trucks play as they invade the barrio at 6AM banging a tinny rhythm on the propane tanks, yelling "gas" and blaring the "gassy tune" over truck mounted metal bull horns at awakening volume! but, i remember the how the tune goes. kinda etched into my memory; and one of the things i miss most about being there.
i was always amused by a message that was printed on the rear of those Z gas trucks which read, " su opinion - no interesa" (a manually modified version of the original message). but, how appropriate.
anyway, i miss that jingle and angella and i have alot of fun with it.
