The Guerilla Flotilla

Boat Float

We’re going to Sacramento
In every kind of boat
Shiny motorboats, and old dinghies
Any vessel fit to float.

We’re cruising up the river
To California’s capitol
In whatever boat’ll float us
Catamaran, dory, scull.

We’ve a message to deliver
To the legislative cabal
Don’t destroy our Delta
With your peripheral canal.

You’ll rob fresh water from the Delta
Killing fish and hurting farms
It isn’t right that Sacramento
causes us this distress and harm.

So listen to us boaters
Take heed of all our boats
If you stick us with the P canal
You’re losing all our votes.
