There's a pipe in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a pipe in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a hole

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea

There's oil in the pipe in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's oil in the pipe in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a hole

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea

There's a crack in the pipe in the hole of the bottom of the sea

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea

No more holes . . . no more holes . . . no more holes in the bottom of the sea
