Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Sunk where foundered the Spain boats,
Tide was high.
Over the bounding main boats
Came, Philip's flag to fly.

Sunk there, down to the drain, boats
With the crew,
Midst the breams, with no means to breathe
So their miens turned blue.

Today the fish swim o'er the spars
That rest beneath the Channel's bars so briny.
And bubbles wrested from sand pop
On dogfish in the frothing chop, their barbs so spiny.

Somewhere down there a train goes whooshing by--
Blur in the "Chunnel," main road
From France; it's fairly dry.

In Mass, the crippled panels fly
Beneath the Maine boats.
Why ain't highway dry?

Very clever, but in the last verse I was wondering how we went from the Armada to The Big Dig to Cuba... :-O

Thanks, Jeff, AFW, Alvin, Ravyn (pun chuckle), Merry (last line refers to the Dig's deluges, in addition to the killer concrete)
