Friggin’ Drillin’ Rigs

[I wrote this song this morning to sing at a protest here in South Florida, where our politicians are frantically trying to figure out what to do about the oil slick that threatens to come our way.  Too litle too late!!]

The USA’s addicted now to fossil fuel and oil,

So BP’s drillin’ off our shore and makes our blood just boil.

We warned them that the oil could spill and wash up on our soil…

Halliburton and BP – you suck!

          CHORUS:

         Take your friggin’ drillin’ rigs and move ‘em from our shore!

         Take your friggin’ drillin’ rigs and don’t come back no more!

         Take your friggin’ drillin’ rigs ‘cause we don’t want your oil!

         Halliburton and BP – you suck!

You bypass the inspections and ignore the warning signs;

You bribe your way to drilling rights and profit from your crimes.

Eleven workers now are dead and fish all swim in slime…

Halliburton and BP – you suck!

          CHORUS

You suck the oil from the sea and poison all the soil;

You suck the profits from the work while others sweat and toil;

You suck the lifeblood from us while you plunder and destroy…

Halliburton and BP – you suck!

          CHORUS
