The Lyrics

Just in case everyone isn't aware....Otis is the foremost manufacturer of elevators...
Yes, Otis regrets
An accident happened today,
Yes, Otis regrets
That accident happened today,
We're so sorry the cable snapped
An inspector sent to check it must've napped,
And Otis regrets
An accident happened today.

When the car fell eight flights
Prob'lly caused some real bad frights,
Can slam with a wham!
Elevators that plunge that way
And may leave undies spotted brown
When, with the speed of sound, they're falling down,

Yes, Otis regrets
An accident happened today
Can't spare cash compensation
Or monetary aid,
But, our sorrow's stressed
In a deep sympathetic way..
We're so sorry six people died..
From now on cables will be double wide
And Otis regrets
That accident happened today..

Yes, Otis regrets
An accident happened today

Having worked in a baseMent . . . the OTIS was our only way out!! Once it jerked just about 4 inches . . . several of us fell to the floor, along with all the papers we were carrying. . . that 's only from 4 inches!!! OTIS specializes in elevators that have hydraulic devices; I take the stairs if possible, Sir !
