The Lyrics

Another BP song....
We can while away the hours, stonewallin’ those in power
Ignorin’ who we can
And their heads they’ll be scratchin’
While the hole we’re still not patchin’
‘Cause we never had a plan

We will honor every cla-im, regardless of how l-ame
Despite financial pain
But when fanfare starts fadin’
Promises we’ll be evadin’
‘Cause we never had a plan

Oh, we’d have saved the sea, and not have spoiled the shore
If we had not skipped safety rules anymore
Regarded laws, like ne’re before

But we didn’t care for nothin’, ‘cept our pockets a-stuffin’
Profitin’ where we can
So we’ll just keep enjoyin’ while the ocean we’re destroyin’
‘Cause we never had a plan

Oh, they did have a plan: it included saving walruses, though, so it might just possibly have been a copy of a plan that wasn't entirely appropriate for the area (or the depth). I see you've still not got it all out of your system.. another good 'un (though I will admit that I am looking forward to seeing what you're going to write about after this particular gusher has run dry)

Clever wordplay and a nice counterpoint to the Turtle's take (wait... he's on the take too?)

Great word-smithing here NT. You just keep drudging up the sludge and I'll keep right on reading and enjoying the bash.

If they only had a drain.
