Nice one, FC!

I've posted this one somewhere else here but it's certainly appropriate:

The Roaches Inherit the Earth

Em                              
I must offer to you a confession,
---Am-------------------------Em
It?s one that I?ve known from my birth,
-----------Am                     
Given nuc-lear power,
--Em               
In that final hour
----Bm
The roaches inherit the earth!

Chorus:

Bm----Em------Bm
Dah-di dum-dum, dum-dum,
Bm----Em------Bm
Dah-di dum-dum, dum-dum!


You may call it my ghoulish obsession,
It?s a subject which gives me much mirth,
Experts are all thumbs,
When the meltdown comes,
And the roaches inherit the earth...

I?ve heard from the NRC stooges,
And nuclear dupes by the score,
Their plans were respected,
Were seldom rejected,
And nuke plants grew more and more...

We?ll soon have a Garden of Eden,
We?ll live off the fat of the land,
Strontium 90 is dandy,
Plutonium?s candy,
And for roaches won?t it be grand...

Experts are all thumbs,
When the meltdown comes,
And the roaches inherit the earth!

Warm regards,
Landlady's Daughter
