Ode to Tony Hayward: Past President & CEO of BP

-Hey Dude-

by InHisownwrite

Hey Dude, what about the crude?
That is floating above the ocean
You tell us, it only needs to be capped
But that's all just crap
You haven't got a notion

Hey Tony, you're full of bologna
Can't you see what your lies are doin?
You tell them, that pretty soon they can fish
But there's no seafood dish
Just plenty of screwin

So anytime you're on your yacht
If it gets hot
Better check the water that you're riding on
If someone near you strikes a match
It just might catch
The oil, your future's slowly gliding on
Na na na, na na, na na na na

Hey Dude, you're stepping down
To the tune of, some eighteen million
But tell that to every fish in the sea
Who longs to swim free
That your oil's killin

So go ahead, please jump on in
You'll lube your skin
The oil will coat your hair and eyeballs
Tell every pelican you see
It's meant to be
A snake is all slimy till its skin crawls
Na na na, na na, na na na na , yeah

Hey Duuuuuude, what about the crude?
It's still in there, despite your toil
Perhaps they, should stir you in a big pot
And there you can rot
Slow boiled in oil, oil, oil, oil!

Repeat three times:
Na na na, na-na na na
Na-na na na, Hey Dude
Na na na, na-na na na
Na-na na na, Hey Dude
