The Lyrics

Who’d like to be just like BP, making billions of dollars in the sea
For oil they drill, perhaps have a spill, but still make a profit wait and see
In a campaign, they will explain
“We’ll make it all scrubby scrubby clean again”

It’s nice and warm by a sunken platform that blew up and sank beneath the waves
They count the cash averting the backlash, saying “Sorry, did we misbehave?”
They will sing and will dance around,
they know all the steps to the oil slick runaround

Profits are high, as they gasify, all the little creatures in the sea
BP oil pimps killing Louisiana shrimp, Pelicans, and Oysters, to name but three
 "The scent of money that was not spent",
Wafting over the Gulf in this catastrophic event

Who’d like to be just like BP, I guess all of us 'cause don’t you see
Driving alone each day, on this not so freeway, stuck in this traffic jamboree
We love our Hummers you and me
and we don’t seem to want alternative energy

We love our Hummers and our SUVs
We’ve sold our soul to Mephistopheles
polluting all the fishes in the sea..........."Waiter, there’s a tarball in my soup"
polluting all the fishes in the sea...."Bring some more crudities for my oily fish
killing all the fishes in the sea

It's never too oily to read a late parody - late that is in the sea life that was. I like this. One thing BP has done for amiright is to have provided an endless amount of fodder to cast at them. Keep drilling these greedy fux. Fine job here.
