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.
