(Sung by Representative Joe Barton to the tune of "Blue Moon")

BP, you've been so badly defamed -
By shakedown artists so robbed, by petty bureaucrats blamed.
BP, I'm so sorry they've been so strict on
These damages.  You've been picked on,
Without a case to convict on.

But pay no mind to all these overreactions,
For memories of this one more spill
Will fade, like all your other infractions,
Once again we'll shout, "Drill, baby, drill!"

BP, you've been soo badly defamed,
The public's been so inflamed.
BP, I'm truly ashamed.


Seeya round town, Moscow.
