She Whispers in my ear
Can I get you a cold beer
While all that wildlife is covered with oil
Strumming my six string
Trying not to sing
About those shrimp, beginning to spoil

Here we go again destroying our mother earth
Hunting down her last buffalo
Some people claim that it’s Big Oil to blame
But I know, it takes two to tango

Well, I know the reason
I go there in season
It’s not to watch an oil well blow
But the gulf is a beauty
So let’s do our duty
How it got there, I’ll never know

Here we go again destroying our mother earth
Hunting down her last buffalo
Some people claim it’s politicians to blame
But I know, it takes two to tango
I slipped on a tar ball
On the beach after nightfall
So I got on a plane and flew on back home
But there’s fuel in my big truck
Cause just like you, I suck
We love our petroleum, it helps us move on

Here we go again destroying our mother earth
Hunting down her last buffalo
Some people claim that there’s somebody to blame
But I know, it’s our own damn fault.
