"‘Mr. Tunnels,’ Ruse His Play"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics
So now we call him “Mr. Tunnels”;
It’s “thief” that also starts with “T.”
Water runs South and will flow
down to Big Ag and so fracking will grow.

A change of name from Mr. Tunnels:
“Canal”’s now “Tunnels”—that’s his play.
So give him a great big jeer;
it seems he’s always been here.
Please, Mr. Tunnels dude, go ’way!
