The Lyrics

We could've drilled anywhere
That we wanted for oil
But now there's not too much left
There's lots of methane right under the floor
May-be we could make a billion, or
Two, three, four

We could've drilled anywhere
That we wanted for oil
But many wells have run dry
Peak oil protracted
More can be extracted
Hydraulic fracturing is why

We're gonna drill everywhere
That we want for more oil
So there's no longer a dearth
And if we try it,
We're gonna supply it
Who really cares if we cause earth..
..quakes?

Shaking of the earth
Surely cause less damage than
Extracted gas is worth?
Earthquakes!
Shake across the land
Everywhere is trembling
Isn't solid ground so bland?
No doubt about it
It must be worthwhile
Good bottom lines will make you smile


We've been drilling everywhere
That we want for more gas
Yes, we decided: More Oil!
They've been impacted
Those places we've frack-ted
Underground water getting spoiled

You give a little frack
And the oil comes up to you
(Da da da ra da da da)
You know you gonna be remembered
When th'environment is screwed
(Da da da ra da da da)
(Repeat and fade)

Unfrackingbelievable! Nice job at being politically relevent while still maintaining the humor throughout

Great job! Is this the one you pulled out of your closet?

"Good bottom lines will make you smile" would have been the perfect ending, but you fracked around and got more out of the song!

Frak!

:-) Thanks all

Agrimorfee - no, this was written last week. The one I wrote a decade or two ago was a bit "meh" & I can see why I never got round to finishing, let alone posting it :-)

BGT - did you by any chance ever play "Frak!" ?
