The Lyrics

how many people want to own this oil giant's stock right now??.. I'm cashing in mine for Chernobyl green power
selling off out around the world,
Are you ready now to ditch BP?
slick is here and the time is right
For cashing in BP.
They're tradingin Chicago,
tar's in New Orleans,
and New York City.

All we need is booming, more booming.
There'll be booms laid everywhere.
There'll be pigeons dying and obama crying
cashing in BP.
Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear,
Just as long's the oil is there.
So come on, ev'ry guy, grab a bird.
clean him up, so he don't hurl
They'll be trading. (trading in BP.)
They're trading in BP. (trading in BP.)

It's an evil motion across the ocean,
A chance for folks to meet.
There'll be tarring, spraying,and I'm just saying
I'm cashing in BP
Philadelphia, P.A.
Baltimore and D.C. now.
Can't forget the Motor City.

All we need is booming, more booming.
There'll be booms laid everywhere.
There'll be pigeons dying and obama crying
cashing in BP.
Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear,
Just as long's the oil is there.
So come on, ev'ry guy, grab a bird.
clean him up, so he don't hurl
They'll be trading. (trading in BP.)
They're trading in BP. (trading in BP.)


Way down in L.A. ev'ry day,
They're trading in BP.
(trading in BP.)
Let's form a big, strong line, get in time,
We're trading in BP.
(trading in BP)
Across the ocean black this attack
means trading in BP.
(trading in BP)
