The Lyrics

BP leased Deep Horizon
Off Louisiana’s shoreline
To make money with an oil rig
They didn’t have much time
Inspectors from the US
Were coaxed not to snoop around
‘Til some stupid methane bubble
Burned the rig right on down
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky, smoke on the water

It blew up the oi-l rig
It died with an awful sound
Executives were all starting to pout
Profits soon would go down
When the rig went under
The oil flowed at an awful pace
T’wards the coast the spill spread out
BP’s response was a disgrace
Oil in the water, BP’s gonna fry, oil in the water

It ended up on the Florida Coast
It’s now empty, dark and bare
But with the flowing Gulf Stream taking the spill
It’s not gonna stop there
With a slew of suits and heat from the feds
BP began to sweat
No matter what they get out of this
I know, I know they'll never forget
Cash from their pockets, Hayward’s gonna cry, life down the toilet

Oil in the water, BP’s gonna fry, oil in the water

It used to be that "The early bird catches the worm", but now it more like 'The oily bird gets eaten by worms'. What's next? Smoke on the Water with a parody about the burn offs? I actually thought of that one a few days ago but decided to go with something else.
