Lana Del Ray track listing
"Oh Say Can You See"
"Queen of the Gas Station" (also registered as "Gas Station") is a song by Lana Del Rey from her debut studio album, Lana Del Ray. The song was written by Del Rey and produced by David Kahne, the principle collaborator on the album.

BackgroundEdit

Recording took place with David Kahne in 2009. Two demos of the song are available, the first demo being an acoustic version, the second an extended studio version. An instrumental of the song leaked on November 19, 2013. It was later registered on ISWC and other services simply as "Gas Station", suggesting another finalized version may be unreleased, though this is not confirmed.

Cross-referencesEdit

  • Gas stations are referenced in many songs by Del Rey, including Texaco in "Ghetto Baby" and Citgo in "Come When You Call Me America". A gas station was also a setting in the music video for "Ride".
  • Casinos are referenced in "Off to the Races".
  • "Made me wonder how you spend them nights" is a similar lyric to "how do you spend your nights" from "Trash Magic"

LyricsEdit

Studio versionEdit

Gimme coffee, king-sized cup
Come on, kitty cat, fill 'er up
"What's your name, little buttercup?"
That's for me to know and you to make up

Love casinos, Indian reservations
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
Gas station

Look at you smokin' in them neon lights
Under the thunder, yo, you look so nice
Make me wonder how you spend them nights
Me, I spend them looking for men I like
Like you, like you, like you

Love casinos, Indian reservations
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
Take me to the gas station

Gimme coffee, Utah love
I'm the kinda girl you dream of
And I'm tryin' to tell you what I dream of
And that's gas stations

With Slurpee machines and organs playin'
Preferably with smoking inside, if you can swing it
(Swing it, swing it, swing it)

And I'd be real pleased
If we could find one just like it
Again, again, again
Again, again, again
Again, again, again
Again, again

Love casinos, Indian reservations
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
Gas station, gas station

Gas station, gas station
Gas station

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Studio demoEdit

(Mmm)

Gimme coffee, king-size cup
Come on, kitty cat, fill 'er up
"What's your name, little buttercup?"
That's for me to know and you to make up

Love casinos, Indian reservation
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station

Look at you smokin' in them neon lights
Under the thunder, oh, you look so nice
Make me wonder how you spend them nights
Me, I spend them lookin' for men I like
Like you, like you, like you

Love casinos, Indian reservation
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
Love casinos, Indian reservation
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station

Gimme coffee, Utah love
I'm the kinda girl you dream of
And I'm tryin' to tell you what I dream of
And that's gas stations

With Slurpee machines and organs playin'
Preferably with smoking inside, if you can swing it
Maybe with a post office attached to it
Chickens runnin' in and out of it
Saw one like that in New Mexico on Route 66

And I'd be real pleased
If we could find one just like it
Again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, again

Love casinos, Indian reservation
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
Love casinos, Indian reservation
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station

Gas station

Acoustic demoEdit

Gimme coffee, king-size cup
Come on, kitty cat, fill 'er up
"What's your name, little buttercup?"
That's for me to know and you to make up

Cap casino, Indian reservation
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station, oh

Look at you smokin' in them neon lights
Under the thunder, oh, you look so nice
Makes me wonder how you spend them nights
Me, I spend them lookin' for men I like
Like you, like you, like you

Love casinos, Indian reservations
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station, station

Gimme coffee, Utah love
I'm the kind of girl you dream of
And I'm tryin' to tell you what I dream of
And that's gas stations

With Slurpee machines and organs playin'
And preferably with smokin' inside, if you can swing it
Maybe with a post office attached to it
With chickens runnin' in and out of it
I saw one like that in New Mexico on Route 66

And I'd be real pleased
If we could find one just like it
Again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, again
Again

(Indiscernible), Indian reservations
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
Love casinos, Indian reservations
But, baby, if you love me
Take me to the gas station
