Spring Rain

0

(With apologies to Johnny Rivers. Sung to “Summer Rain“.)

Spring Rain taps at my window
Sewers flow out to the big lake
Deep Tunnel, overflowin
The poop’s out to sea, yeah
It’s out to sea

It came out of the sewers
raw sewage brown and untreated
warm poop and lots of condoms
the poop’s out to sea, yeah
It’s out to sea

All Summer long we stayed on the sand
Sewer overflowin’ everybody stay on the land

We sailed across the lakefront
drifting along, caught in the brown stream
Tried not to think about the sewers,
Let the sewer water flow free, yeah
Let the poop go free

She wants to live on the North Shore
She says that’s where we’ll find peace
Settle down, pay a lot of taxes
taxes on our home, yeah
we’ll have a lot to owe

All Summer long we stayed on the sand
Sewer overflowin’ everybody stay on the land

Winter snows blocking my driveway
Northwind knocking out power
Someday, the snow will melt
into the combined sewers, yeah
taking poop out to sea

Let the sewers run free
