Gulf Coast Chorus: There's a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea

There's a reason why some of those classic kiddie folk songs have stuck around for so long: You never know when they'll become perfectly relevant all over again!
Here's one now, with a little Gulf Coast makeover...

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a hole, there's a hole,
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a spill in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a spill in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a spill, there's a spill,
There's a spill in the hole
In the bottom of the sea.

There's a plume from the spill in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a plume from the spill in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a plume, there's a plume,
There's a plume from the spill in the hole
In the bottom of the sea.

There's a slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a slick, there's a slick,
There's a slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a gasp, there's a gasp,
There's a gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a poll, there's a poll,
There's a poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a pol in the poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a pol in the poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a pol, there's a pol,
There's a pol in the poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a risk to the pol in the poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a risk to the pol in the poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a risk,
There's a risk,
There's a risk to the pol in the poll of the gasp at the slick from the plume from the spill
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.
