Seven million hours
with no lost time.
Drip, drip, drip.
110% production,
we're doing fine.
Drip, drip, drip.
Reduce our taxes,
save every dime.
Temporary workers
get in line.
Profits soaring,
a real gold mine.
Drip, drip, drip.

Years on line,
we're going to town.
Drip, drip, drip.
Other plants crack,
we don't frown,
Drip, drip, drip.
Three Mile Island
near melt down,
Same thing here
won the secrecy crown.
Never told anyone
what we found.
Drip, drip, drip.

We'll inspect
our own plant.
Drip, drip, drip.
Keep the government
off our backs.
Drip, drip, drip.
South Carolina
found some cracks.
All we found is
rusty tracks.
We'll look later,
Dust those racks!
Drip, drip, drip.

Great big hole
in the reactor cap,
Drip, drip, drip.
No radiation for
all of that.
Drip, drip, drip.
No radiation
got outside
Except what's on
the clothes of our guys.
We didn't notice --
what a surprise!
Drip, drip, drip.

Seems more nozzles
now have holes.
Drip, drip, drip.
We didn't see it
under our nose.
Drip, drip, drip.
NRC gave us
a gold award.
Same day we're cited
for what we ignored.
Now they want
an oversight board.
Drip, drip, drip.

We'll weld a plate
right over the spot.
Drip, drip, drip.
Cover it up with
what we've got.
Drip, drip, drip.
It's hard to do,
the place is hot;
Replace the cap?
We think not?
We're doing great,
no brain rot!
Drip, drip, drip.
