Parody Written by:
Come and listen to a story that will set you seeing red
Big Oil and the government were sleepin' in a bed
And then be-cause M.M.S. was in their camp,
Liz B. approved Deepwater with a worn-out rubber stamp
(Formality that is... Bush Era deregulation)
Well the first thing you know they were drillin' out at sea
Transocean owned the oil rig and leased it to BP
Then one day when the chief was overruled
And up through the well come a gush of light crude
(Oil that is, black gold, Palin Punch)
Well the next thing you know there was fire everywhere
But no one ever thought that the riser pipe would tear
And even if it did, there was still the B.O.P.
But the thing didn't shut, so it belches Texas Tea
When the story hit the news, lots of folks got really mad
So BP told the media "look folks, it ain't so bad...
We'll clean up all the oil and we promise that we'll pay
'Cuz we calculate the flow at just a couple thou' a day"
(Barrels that is...sweet, light crude)
Well Obama's uninvolvement soon was found to be in vain
Republican's compared it to George Bush's hurricane
Said that the Gulf is the place you oughta be
So they loaded Air Force One and he went to scold BP
(Gulf that is, skimming pools, oozy tars)
Well the next thing you know they were runnin' out of booms
Some scientists discovered there were underwater plumes
Obama told the company the costs you must defray
'Cuz your estimates are off by up to 20 thou a day!
(Barrels that is... 102 gymnasiums worth!)
Well the next thing you know the investigation came
The players pointed fingers as they tried to shift the blame
When asked in front of Congress who to blame among the three
Haliburton said Transocean and Transocean said BP
Well now it's time to say goodbye to this huge gooey mess
And here's to old Bill Maher who I think expressed it best
For every asshole who was chanting 'Drill Baby Drill"
Put on your freakin' overalls and help clean up the spill!
Heavily Spillbillies, that's what they call 'em now,
Nice folks. Y'all come back now, ya hear?)
