Paint It Black

The political satire and song of Charlie King & Karen Brandow at Frank & Jane Dorrel's last Saturday has inspired me to try my own hand at song writing. So here goes..

Paint It Black

Word my Clay Claiborne, Music by the Rolling Stones


I see a coastline and I want it painted black
No wildlife anymore I want them to turn black
Oil makes me more than you'll ever ever know
If fish get in the way then they'll just have to go

I see a line of cars and they're all paying me
If you don't like it then just go and hug a tree
I see the world go bye, it's seen it's brightest day
It won't last too long with those oil spills in the bay

I look inside and see my corporate heart is black
In the name of profits mother Earth I will attack
I'll not fade away so you'd better face the fact
If I'm not overthrown then your whole world is black

No more will your green sea turn a deeper blue
It'll all be covered with oil before my work is through

Making a fortune this way is just a little bit creepy
But we don't worry cause the government trusts BP

I see a coastline and I want it painted black
No wildlife anymore I want them to turn black
Oil makes me more than you will ever ever know
If fish get in the way then they'll just have to go

Hmm, hmm, hmm,...

I wanna see it tainted, tainted black
Black as oil, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it tainted, tainted, tainted, tainted black
Yeah!

Hmm, hmm, hmm,...
