The Lyrics

Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety
BP’s corporate HQ loved that deep sea oil
It brought them cash and big mansions and other lavish spoils. Oh!

Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety
Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety

One mile ‘neath the surface, they did drill their deep sea well
They ignored the guidelines and said everything is swell
MMA Inspectors were bought whene’er they came
Hunting trips and sports tickets were all part of the game. Oh!

Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety
Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety

Big Oil Firms live forever, but not so those employed
Big troubles from gas bubbles cause rigs to be destroyed
One sad morn it happened, Deep Horizon was no more
Engulfed in a great fireball, it went down with a roar

BP was deep in sorrow, cash went down the drain
Fifty million dollars for a failed PR campaign
Without a shutoff valve, oil flowed ‘neath the waves
And eleven poor workers sadly sunk down to their graves. Oh!

Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety
Deepwater Horizon drilled in the sea
It ran behind, BP was pissed, and so they ignored safety
