The Lyrics

Hurricane Katrina Parody Song
Days oh, How many Days, oh?
Hurricane come and now we gotta no home
Day is a day, is how many days now?
Hurricane come and now we gotta no home

Wait all night and day and drink a' water none
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)
Stack'd us in the dome when the hurricane hit
Wasn't quite so bad, till next morning, smelled like shit
(Hurricane come and now me gotta no home)

Come Mister President, your plane fly overhead
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)
Come Mister President, look closer; tally all the dead
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)
1 foot, 2 foot, 3 foot bunch of water

Hurricane come and now we gotta no home
4 foot, 5 foot, 6 foot bunch of water
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)

Days Oh, So many Days –0h
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)
Day is a day, is how many days now?
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)

They say the problem is, the levee it a' breached
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)
Hide from the deadly--It's Katrina, the real bitch
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)

It' 7 foot, 8 foot , 9 foot bunch of water
Hurricane come and now we gotta no home
10 foot, 11 foot ,12 foot bunch of water
Hurricane come and now we gotta no home
Days Oh, So many days –0h
Hurricane come and now we gotta no home
Day is a day, is how many days now?
Hurricane come and now we gotta no home

Come Mister President, tell a' me how much longer
Look, see the children, oh how they thirst and hunger
(Hurricane come and now we gotta no home)
Come Mr. President, save my dear sweet grandma
My poor old grandma; she waited on her bed
Waited and she waited, but by Friday she was dead.
(Hurricane come and now me gotta no home)

Days Oh, So many days, Oh
Hurricane come and now me gotta no home
Day is a day, is how many days now?
(Hurricane come and now me gotta no home)
days me say days me say, so many days me say, days oh...
(Nobody come and me gotta no home)
© 2005 Robert St. John -- It is my hope that this parody will instill a little bit of humor in an otherwise catastrophic situation. It is not my intent to belittle the suffering and pain endured by the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I sincerely hope no one is offended by any phrases in my parody song and that it is accepted in the good-natured spirit it is intended.
