The Lyrics

The flow is capped, at least temporarily, and headquarters has been cleansed of oily scum, at least temporarily.
Woke up one morning seeing slime
Wrecking beaches in southern clime
That’s just below the neighborhood known as Ninth Ward
Something’s smelly—slime from the seabed poured
(Something’s smelly—slime from the seabed)

Seeping’ slimy oil* will cause to die
Fish of every size—from large to fry
So they close each beach as the Pres. looks bored
(They close each beach; residents get gored)
Gunk like jelly—slime from the seabed poured
(Gunk like jelly—slime from the seabed)

An oily scam are all the dimwits who
Really f**ked up the sea, the shoal, bight, slough
These BP galling f**kups
In league with Joe Barton-like* suckups
In league with Congressional suckups

Cadre of gnomes who’ve got a greased hand
And I don’t mean the grease that comes from the land
Or in this case, it comes from the sea. . .
Millions of barrels poured
(It comes from the sea; millions of barrels poured)
Gunk like jelly’s sliming southern seaboard
(Gunk like jelly’s sliming southern seaboard
Junk that’s smelly’
Ghastly’s the gnome who’s from blunderland
Where did they get this creep? I don’t understand.
The a$$hole who’s running BP
Damaged dolts on its board
(And a$$hole’s running BP; dolts on the board)
Something’s smelly: Slime King who’s named Hayward
Something’s smelly: scum thing named Hayward

PS:
Woke up this morning feeling fine
Headquarters had been cleansed of the slime
Last night jettisoned jetsam—PR points board scored
Firm’s less smelly—slime king’s thrown overboard


*Congressional oil slick from Texas

Good job. At least your wit has not become fouled. Let's see how his successor (American from a gulf state, reliably Democratic, now beholden to the president) does. If it doesn't work, one of us should write (to the tune of Bo Diddley) "Hey, Bob Dudley!". ;D
