93,000 pounds of cheap beads in the drain
Dig a ton out and pass'em around
92,000 pounds of cheap beads in the drain
Dig out another ton and toss'em around
Still a crap load of cheap beads in the drain
92,000 pounds of cheap beads left in that blasted drain
92,000 pounds of cheap beads can stay in that drain
It'll be a long time until it rains
And we ain't gonna dig any more cheap beads outta that drain.

$2.37 or 8.34 million flashes

they will be tossed on tourists again, and end up there again....
