"I'm on E" as written by and Chris Stein Deborah Harry....
I'm on E
I'm on E
I'm on E
Got nuts' to say
I used to have a car of my own
I'm on E
I'm on E
I'm on E for easy
Laid out for maybe a week
I've walked my feet to the bone
I'd give my life for a car of my own
I'm on E
I'm on E
Two weeks ago Saturday I was on TV
I'd like a show of my own
But you see I'm still on E
Even though everything is happening to me
So when your driving' on home, don't regret your loan
I'm on E
I'm on E
I gave my car to a guy named Vinnie
I feel like gassin' my feet
They've totaled your bill and you skipped a beat
I used to have a car of my own
Twenty eight or fifty eight
Walking to refrigerator
To the pump do the bump
Still on E I'll think of something
I'm on E and I'm on E
I'll never have to stop my feet
Twenty eight or fifty eight
Walking to refrigerator
To the pump do the bump
Still on E I'll think of something
I'm on E and I'm on E
I'll never have to fill my feet up

    General CommentYou'd think that the song was about ecstasy but it isn't. It's about the economy and how Debbie couldn't afford paying for gas so she had to sell her car. Now she walks everywhere. Quite obvious when you read the lyrics.

    General CommentI'm on E, on empty, like when a car's fuel gauge is on E.

    General CommentThanks for your comments, they are both eye-opening and disappointing. But "on empty" sounds 100% logic. Also it was rather the late 80s that E hit the scene, so I guess Blondie weren't even aware of any ambiguosity, back then in the late 70s...

    General Commentclearly about ecstasy (mdma) and how it fucked people up when it hit the scene back in the late 70's. kind of an anti drug song, like just showing how bad addiction is
