The Lyrics

This Oil Spill is making everyone down south very depressed. And I'm so sick of it...I'll make a song out of it!
Sitting by a beach of oil,
And it looks like this beach is soiled.
I'm watchin' the ships go in,
And repair the damaged pipes again.

I'm just sittin' by the Oily Bay,
Will these Oil balls go away?
Oh, I think these people who are at bay, are wastin' their time.

I left my home in Cleveland,
And now I'm down Alabama Way.
They say they would finish the job soon,
And the oil won't be goin' away.

And now I'm sittin' by the Oily Bay,
Who here is to blame?
The way the oil reaches the bay, we're wastin' our time.

Looks like the politics don't change.
Everything still remains the same.
They just do whatever the hell they please.
It's just a cat-and-mouse game!

Looking at the oily birds,
And the beauty that will never return.
It was many miles that I roamed,
I might as well just go home.

I'm just gonna sit on the oily bay,
Looks like BP may be in trouble for days.
Oh yes, the people with this oiled mess is wastin' our time.

(Whistle to fade)

The oily bird doesn't get the worm - it gets eaten by them. What a mess - Right now I'm about 1 1/2 hour drive from the Gulf. I know how pristine the place is - I've been around the Gulf from Ft. Walton Beach, Florida all the way to South Padre Island along the Texas coast. The Florida panhandle area has the very best oysters I've ever downed. I think they will be no more. Louisiana and Texas put out some mean shrimp. I'm going to miss this seafood.

Tony Hayward should be tar balled and feathered and run out the Gulf on a rail. I am just a bit more than a lot pissed off over this. I like how you drew the picture of the tragedy. Well done.

Yeah, when it comes to BP and the oil spills, it really sucked when that happened! A sucky, yet mucky situation indeed! (Shakes head) Unbelievable! And speaking of oily birds here's a clip you should check out:
