The Lyrics

Grand Coulee in Washington,
And Fort Randall in S. D.
We got Hoover, there's VanCouver,
Up in Canada, you see
There is Oloville and Shasta,
Out there where they cheer the Rams..
What ain't we got? A lack of Dams!

There Is Nothin' Like A Dam..
Nothin' in the world,
Let me tell you Sir, or Mam,
..That is anything like a Dam!

There's Niagara in New York,
And Montana claims Fort Peck
There is Flaming Gorge in Utah,
Stretched across Green River's neck,
Luddington in Michigan, and
Raccoon Mountain....Tennessee
Ain't nothin' like...a Dam can be!

Dams are great things everybody oughta root for,
They are one thing that there is no substitute for..

There's no force like a Dam
No resource like a Dam
No nat'ral falls like a Dam
Or concrete walls, like a Dam
Nothin' flows like a Dam
Or Hydro's like a Dam..

Need I draw a diagram?
There Is Nothin' Like A Dam!

No reservoirs like a Dam
Nothing stores like a Dam
Prevents floods like a Dam
Stops sliding muds like a Dam
Irrigates like a Dam
Or recreates like a Dam...

There ain't nothing here on Earth, or out in Space
That's remotely similar, or could replace...
A giant, powerful, massive, wonderful Dam!

There Is Nothin' Like A Dam!....Damn!

Enjoyable... I was just sketching out "Damn Dam" (to Status Quo's "Down Down"). Gonna have to make it a bit different, now :-)

555 for you, if you want to see what happens when dams don't do the job, see " Dam That River" called " Dam the Teton"

Well done, AFW. This is one of the two best dam parodies that I have read on AmIRight.
