The Lyrics

A parody of solidarity with the ripped-off people of Flint, Michigan
(INSTRUMENTAL INTRO)

I'm gonna tell you a story
I'm gonna tell you about this town
I'm gonna tell you a sad, sad story, people
How the state messed up this town

It flowed from the river
Lead from the pipes of the River Flint
The state emergency person
To save them some money
He switched the water source from Detroit
(Ah, but ever since then)

They've been drinking poisoned water
Rick Snyder's got to go
(Yeah, he's the number one cause)

Frustrated doctor (I mean she's frustrated)
City and state she warned for months (Doctor Mona)
But they blew her off in Lansing
Said her test results were flawed
(I'd like to see them tell the suffering families)

They've been drinking poisoned water
Rick Snyder's got to go (oh yeah)

(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

They've been drinking poisoned water
Rick Snyder's got to go (Oh yeah)

They've been drinking poisoned water (He's got to go now)
Drinking poisoned water (Recall ASAP)
Drinking poisoned water (And some state legislators too)
Drinking poisoned water (They're the ones, they're the ones)
Drinking poisoned water (Owwwww!)
Drinking poisoned water (Come on)
