Oil can, oil can
You think I'm the Tin Man
You took my little heart and you kicked it like a tin can
“Oil can” is a reference to the Wizard of Oz when the Tin Man can’t move and needs oil to move. DC is saying that this girl was playing with his heart and kicking him around.
It is also another Wizard of Oz reference because the Tin Man is looking for a heart.
