The Lyrics

Even Flor'da..
Sunny Flor'da
Where it's torrid-a
Could get globby..
Even more.."duh"

There are many..
Sticky beaches
On the Gulf coast
Where it reaches..
Hope this bad beseige is..
About to end real soon..

Every day on CNN we see
Videos of crude oil gushing free
What will it take to make it stop?
Somehow they've got to plug that glop !

President and BP heads, now say
Twenty billion dollars they will pay
How can you put a price on shame?
Nobody really takes the blame !

Oil By The Barrels
Keeps leaking deep in the sea
Oil By The Barrels,
Caused by mistakes of BP
Bobs, Toms, and Darrels,
All have their fishing boats docked
Let's suck up that oil in barrels,
Till the leak's all stopped..

Dough, dough, dough, dough,
Dough, dough, dough, dough,
Dough, dough, dough
Dough, dough, dough, dough, dough

Where's the end,
My friend,
To this tormoil?
Will we all
Just die
And drown in oil?
If rocket ships can fly to Mars,
Why can't they stop this smear of tars?

(Someone find a way !!!)

Oil By The Barrels
Leaking out deep in the sea
Oil By The Barrels,
Caused by mistakes of BP
Sad are the perils,
Pelicans greasy and black
Hey, suck up the oil in barrels,
And seal up that crack !!!

Please seal up that crack !!!

Farce ol' buddy, you really scrounged through the dusty archives for this one. Here's a youtube link of it done by the Andrews Sisters for those of you who are not familiar with polka lore:

There would be a lot less complaing if these were barrels of beer leaking rather than oil. Fine job Farce. I'm back on site for a bit. I'm doing my versionof the spill tomorrow.

Ooooooo - I just caught this - you got all the Gulf states except Texas in your parody. I'll just pretend that you are not a geography major.

Good choice for OS, and customarily fun word play from AFW! A sad state of affairs all the way around, isn't it?

PS: Guy-- you're back!!

I don't know where to begin...all I gotta say is, great OS to use for the subject! A "slick" satire! 555's in the barrel! So incredible that this happened. When I first saw this on the news, it got me thinking "Oh, boy, as if this world isn't into enough trouble as it is!"

@ Guy- Welcome back, buddy! Long time no see!

The feeling is mutual ladies. I am so glad that two of my favorite ladies are still around. I'll be writing for a bit now and hope to keep my sense of humor going to write more. It has been 8 months to the day since I posted. I nearly lost my better half within the past eight months. She is fairing better now and it is time that I get on with things and try to get some normality back into my life - that is if you call this insanity of writing spoofs sane. I have some writings waiting in the wings so you will be seeing me out here for at least the next week and a half.

I forgive you Farce and you are not only welcome but correct - Texas is the least effected by the spill so far and I think that is because the Gulf stream is pushing the oil away from the Texas cooastline, but in the early stages South Padre Island south west of Corpus Christi reported some spillage and tar balls. But all it will take is one hurricane headed in the direction of the Texas coast to change all that - meantime tourism and the fishing industry should be seeing a boom on the Texas shoreline.
