The Lyrics

Ganges, Ganges
When was your water crystal clear?
Ganges, Ganges
Wending, it breeds stuff severe

Icky gunk upon the shoals
It's our dunny, midden, moat
But our souls it sanctifies...
But Ganges, Ganges
So dismayed it's putrified

Ganges, you're gooey-full
Yet see that Brahman there towel-dry
Ganges, people, buff, do
Surrender to your wat'ry grime...

Full of things all decomposed
Teems with fact'ry waste, a-choke
Can't be dysentary-ier
Ganges, Ganges
What swill is breeding in here?

Oh Ganges, don't you seep?
All the masses there excrete
Creates that bad pus in the eyes
That Ganges, Ganges
Sacred cow dung floating by...

It's no lovely water hole
With dead bodies all abloat
And suttee ash cremafied
In Ganges, aswirls stuff debris-by
'Cross ya could I walk, to other side
There ain't pollution quite untouchable
Don a bathing cap, baptize...

But Ganges, Ganges,
Caste anew could make you thrive
Danube ? Danube...?
Reincarnate if you tried...

Excellent message. The sad thing about the problem is that it is in such a denseley populated area and so many people are exposed to the pollution.
