The Lyrics

This is a combination of all the ones submitted this month. with my own added touch.
PB Hillbullies

E B7
Come and listen to a story bout' the gulf oil spill
B7 E
The oil execs lobbied on capitol hill
E A Bbdim
They were wheelin' and dealin' and the public got screwed
B7 E
Cause they dumped all the rules for digging up crude
Bribes that is, free meals, backroom deals.

Well the next thing you know they were drillin' out at sea
There were no safety rules so it blew up easily
They said get away from here as far as you an be
Cause we cut too many corners on this rig in the sea
Cutbacks you know, made it blow, call Jaques Cousteau

When the story hit the news, folks got really mad
BP told the media "look it ain't so bad...
We'll clean up the mess and we promise that we'll pay
'Cuz we calculate the flow at just a couple thou' a day"
Barrels that is, under the sea, compliments of BP

Well the next thing you know the investigation came
The players pointed fingers as they tried to shift the blame
When asked in front of Congress who to blame among the three
Haliburton said Transocean and Transocean said BP
Fault that is, pass the buck, PB go stuck

Well Obama's uninvolvement was found to be in vain
Republican's compared it to Bush's hurricane
They said in the Gulf is the place you oughta be
So they loaded up the plane went to scold BP
Blame that is, heads will roll, plug that hole.

Now it's time to say goodbye to this gooey mess
Thanks to Bill Mahar who really said it best
For every asshole chanting “Drill Baby Drill"
Put your overalls on and clean up the spill!
Oil that is, tar balls, toxic tea, put your back into it, ya hear

So, is PB another oil company, too, or is it a spoof of BP? Just wondering! BP sure is getting a bad rap from that disastrous oil spill on the Gulf and beyond! 555.

BP=British Prix. They need to fix my Gulf and "O" needs to stop punishing the southern dixieland states. The South paid dearly during "reconstruction" - their debt is paid. Enough already - get off your duff "O" and fix this mess - paying lip service will not fix anything. And yeah, it's too bad that your drilling ban was shot down again by a federal judge. The damage is already done so why worry about another accident at this time. 85.000 folks in Louisana make their living on the rigs or supporting them. Thats a hard hit on that economy. Lighten up already.

Unlike BP, you are doing a heckuva job. Time to send the Alaska twit down there and show her what her "Drill baby drill" idea does. Guy, what about their crimes from 1865 onward? The reason we worry about another accident is that oil companies can't be trusted. We will not "lighten up." And I have no sympathy for tobacco farmers, either. Why don't they just shoot us and save us the years of suffering from their foul weed?

MP - Do you have a better theory why the man sat on his ass for 60 days before he ever did anything? He has malice in his heart and you know it! So how does it feel when I bust your POTUS's ass like you did for years about Bush? The shoe seems to be on the other foot now. Payback is a bidge.
