The Lyrics

The BP fiasco has brought new meaning to a song vaguely remembered from my childhood. Inspired in part by this video. I use the past tense "t'was" ("it was") instead of "there's" for the drill, because I figure that the drill bit has been removed from the well.
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a hole, there's a hole
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea

There's some oil in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's some oil in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's some oil, there's some oil
There's some oil in the hole in the bottom of the sea

There's a well for the oil in the hole
In the bottom of the sea
There's a well for the oil in the hole
In the bottom of the sea
There's a well, there's a well
There's a well for the oil in the hole
In the bottom of the sea

T'was a drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
T'was a drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
T'was a drill, t'was a drill
T'was a drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea

There's a pipe for the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a pipe for the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a pipe, there's a pipe
There's a pipe for the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea

There's a leak in the pipe for the drill in the well
For the oil in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a leak in the pipe for the drill in the well
For the oil in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a leak, there's a leak
There's a leak in the pipe for the drill in the well
For the oil in the hole in the bottom of the sea

There's a slick from the leak in the pipe
For the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a slick from the leak in the pipe
For the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a slick, there's a slick
There's a slick from the leak in the pipe
For the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea

There's a mess from the slick from the leak
In the pipe for the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a mess from the slick from the leak
In the pipe for the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a mess, there's a mess
There's a mess from the slick from the leak
In the pipe for the drill in the well for the oil
In the hole in the bottom of the sea

VRTOS (Vaguely Remember The Original Song) and your take on it is very clever!

Could have been even longer though: There's a rush for the news with the pics of the birds in the mess from the slick from the leak....
