The Lyrics

Summing up the Gulf oil spill.
Little fishy, oily one
You're full of petroleum
Can we save you?
Can we, little fish?
(Little fish, my little oily fish)

I have found oil on the shore
Gushing from the ocean's floor
Can we save you?
Can we, little fish?
(Little fish, little fish)

We can clean the Gulf together
It might take ten years
All the while, our cries for help are
Falling on deaf ears

So I say, from me to you
BP's got you really screwed
Can we save you?
Can we, little fish?

Little fish, my little oily fish
Little fish, my little oily fish
(repeat to fade)

Nice take on a Beach Boy's classic. It's scary to think of that much water, let alone having it filled with oil. The Missouri and Kansas rivers are high right now because of above average rainfall, but at least they're only filled with mud.

Even worse, Patrick, we're now in Atlantic hurricane season. World's biggest science experiment out there...never had a spill on this scale in the Gulf before. I said on my Facebook page that I hope they don't kill Louisiana like the rats in my pharmacology lab back in college...
