The Lyrics

sp = small people



Now we’re really into safety here at the new BP
Our old engineering seems hazardous to seas
Since the mishap when our workers heard a BOOM!
And up from the sea came a troubling flume

Oil by George, Tar Balls, Toxic Tea

Well the price tag was a cool twenty billion clams
Obama said, “I’m imposing a ban!”
Said “We really need to review our policies”
But was thwarted by a judge who would rule to end the freeze

‘Drill!’ he said, ‘ go you fools, spill some more!’

What we were forced to pay for some dead old pelicans
Well we could have bought a mint, but we blindly skinned our shins
Now our competition will learn from our stupidity
And have a friggin’ field day with our dumb calamity

‘Spillbillies’, they say, what the hell, blow the lid off!

We’re real sorry now, y’hear?

If this happened off the coast of say Saudi Arabia you could write the Bel-Arabs. I think someone came up with the term spillbillies the other day to this very OS. Still a good read. This is a fun ballad to base a parody write. I've toyed with Jed's song a bit myself.

"troubling flume" has a nice touch. This is a five barrel carbon-ater.

I am fairly certain that the original theme for the TV show was performed by Lester Flatt and Earl Skruggs and not Jerry Scoggins.

Oh well I'm just nit pickin' and a grinnin'.
