The Lyrics

My long overdue tribute to the people of the Gulf Coast whose fishing industry may be forever damaged by BP's greed and selfishness. God bless these people; even though I don't share much of the same idealogical background with many of them, we are all Americans nonetheless.
Well they built us a rig and it looks like it's blowing
O' Mississippi she'll never be the same
Catfish are dying
Them fishermen crying
Black oil keeps on spilling more everyday
Oh black oil, keep on spilling
Mississippi's screwed now, all because of BP
Oh black oil, keep on spilling
Louisiana's screwed now, all because of BP
Oh black oil, keep on spilling
Alabama's screwed now all because of BP
Yeah it keeps on spilling all right
It'll never make anything, never gonna
Gonna make anything alright
And it aint in their worries
Cause they aint in no hurry at all

(BP)
If they complain, we don't care
Don't make no difference to us
Just take that airplane that's going back home
Yeah, I'd like to laugh about the oil spill
And damage it has done
Cause there aint no doubt their industry is down

Oh black oil, keep on spilling
Mississippi's screwed now, all because of BP
Oh black oil, keep on spilling
Louisiana's screwed now, all because of BP
Oh black oil, keep on spilling
Alabama's screwed now all because of BP
Yeah it keeps on spilling all right
It'll never make anything, never gonna
Gonna make anything alright
And it aint in their worries
Cause they aint in no hurry at all

(BP)
I'd like to laugh about the oil spill
That Obama guy has the pressure on his hands
On his hands, you've got it on your hands, hey Obama!
Come and try to save the Gulf Coast all night long
I want to see you try, see you try, see you try
You try all night long
The lyrics I based the ones above on were found here: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/doobie+brothers/black+water_20042465.html I know the real songs a bit different at the end.

You're never too late for this one. Trust me, BP is still going on and soiling the waters. I might write a late one myself. But great job and 5's!
