[On Katrina]

 S.O.S. (FEMA Didn't Seem to See) 

To "Dream a Little Dream of Me"

(Words and Music by Fabian Andre, Gus Kahn,

and Wilbur Schwandt)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

STORM-FORMING LOCOMOTION.
GALE TRAILING. 
SAILING IN FROM THE OCEAN.
BREAKS. 
LAKES.
WHERE THERE WAS ONCE A LEVEE.
FEMA DIDN’T SEEM TO SEE.
 
FOLKS STARVING, ALSO STRANDED.
ABANDONED FIRST, AND THEN REPRIMANDED.
GOD, BROADCAST OVER NETWORK TV!
FEMA DIDN’T SEEM TO SEE.
 
MONTHS LATER, CAN’T YET GET THE DIRT OFF.
STILL MORE WAYS TO DROWN.
“MY SHAME.” 
WILL PROCLAIM MICHAEL CHERTOFF.
“BUT BLAME MIKE BROWN.”
 
WHAT NO-BID MEANS MAY LEASH TO.
THAT NEW ORLEANS LOOKED LIKE MOGADISHU.
THE CRUSHED DREAM OF EACH EVACUEE.
FEMA DOESN’T SEEM TO SEE.
FEMA DOESN’T SEEM TO SEE.
