But… who’ll look out for poor BP?

On 20 June, 2010, in Parodies, Song Parodies, by C. Scott Davis

Rep. Joe Barton

Mr. Hayward / Congressman Barton

to the tune of “Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey” by Paul & Linda McCartney

We’re so sorry Mr. Hayward
We’re so sorry for this awful tragedy
We’re so sorry Mr. Hayward
And I really am ashamed
Of how the White House treats BP
We’re so sorry that they’re shaking you down this way
We’re so Sorry Mr. Hayward
How can we live in a country that would do this kind of thing?

We’re so sorry Mr. Hayward
That the President has asked BP to pay
We’re so sorry Mr. Hayward
But with Democrats in charge we just can never get our way

Oil is in the water (water)
Oil is in the sand
Oil is in the water (water)
Oil is in the sand
Congressman Barton wasn’t the first
To say it was a shakedown, ‘cos some have called it worse
But he’s the only one who took it far enough to apologise (apologise?)
(he’d better take it back or we’ll all be demonised)

Oil is in the water (water)
Oil is in the sand
Oil is in the water (water)
Oil is in the sand

Put it all behind you then you’ll drill again (drill again)
That’s the way it’s always been
Soon or later, drill again
Put it all behind you then you’ll drill again (drill again)
That’s the way it’s always been
Soon or later, drill again

Oil is in the water (water)
Oil is in the sand
Oil is in the water (water)
Oil is in the sand
