For my wife Lee Hiller-London

It makes me want to hurl,
BP comes not with frankincense and myrrh,
Tony Hayward said he was devastated hearing 11 men drowned
So BP puts dispersents in the oil and it swirls,
So we won’t see it when it hits the beach or land.
Now half the Gulf against BP has a writ
Most the beaches now are full of tar balls and grime,
Would you swim in anti-freeze?

(Refrain)


Are small people as important as their cash cow?
BP rigs leak,
The Gulf was once home to mullet, shrimp and trout,
Now brown goo is all that can be seen
Does Kevin Kostner hold the key,
Could James Cameron stop the leak,
We won’t know as BP will not concur
Deep Horizon was built upon deceit,
Now they should be read their legal rights,
For turning the Gulf into the Black Sea, yeah,
Because BP Leaks, Deep Horizon leaks,
The goo is leaking, yow
BP Leaks, BP Leaks,


Where oysters once made pearls,
And fish once laid their roe,
Now just seem like folklore,
The crap BP excretes,
Will take supertankers from Shell in the end, yeah,
It’s so obscene
Can we send them back to LondonTown?
We turn our hopes to the Prez,
Makes a small escrow with 3 years waiting
I turn on cable news and see the oil-drenched gulls,
Bp’s just obscene
(Refrain)
(Bridge)
Look around, no living things,
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!


BP Leaks, It leaks,
That oil rig leaks.
Ohhhhh
It affects every boy and girl,
Every father and mother,
Our life has been beat by BP into th egroiund,
If you think they’re through with us small people, they’ll repeat for sure,
Another one blows, Dammit.
