Algae (with apologies to Mick & Keith)

Sung to the tune of “Angie” by the Rolling Stones:

Algae, algae
When will those cars you run appear?
Algae, algae
The process still ain’t too clear

To Obama we give thanks
As we’re fillin’ up our tanks
You can say he patronized
Algae, algae
We’ve lost count of all his lies

Algae
You’re plentiful, yeah
But your worth is undefined
Algae
I slipped on ya
On that boulder at low tide

People think you’re kinda gross
As you squish between their toes
Scrub you off, you reappear
Algae, algae
With our drains you interfere

Oh, algae, how you creep
In the shallows and the deeps
Can we use ya when we drive?
Algae, algae
Barry’s hopes will you revive?

As we’re fillin’ up our tanks
You can say he patronized
But algae, we still love ya, baby
Some use for you we will devise
There ain’t a fuel source that comes close to you
At least that’s what we theorize

But algae, algae
You’re called nori when you’re dried
Algae, algae
Hey, at least Obama tried
