Global Warming Song

Global Warming Song

Oliver Swingler, who grew up in Belsize Park Gardens, has shared this song with us, and here is a link to the Making Waves community choir singing it. We hope you enjoy it!

 

 

 

 

  

What can we do about global warming?

(to the tune of ‘What can we do with the drunken sailor?’)

 

Chorus:                  What can we do about global warming?

What can we do about global warming?

What can we do about global warming?

Shrink our carbon footprint!

 

1.              Walk, cycle, bus and train

Car share, avoid the plane

Holiday at home, learn to love the rain

Shrink our carbon footprint!

 

2.              Insulate homes and get them lined

Stop oil, gas and coal being mined

Use tidal, solar, wind and find we’ll

Shrink our carbon footprint!

 

Chorus:                  What can we do about global warming?

What can we do about global warming?

What can we do about global warming?

Shrink our carbon footprint!

 

3.              Organic, local, seasonal eating

Recycle, mend, turn down the heating

Share, cooperate, stop competing

Shrink our carbon footprint!

 

Watch out! The seas are rising

Cry out! The seas are rising

Bale out! The seas are rising

Save our lovely planet!

 

4.              Don’t believe the greenwash, keep on prying

Tax millionaires, stop envy buying

Climate change deniers, they’re all lying

Shrink our carbon footprint!

Chorus: 

We can do a lot about global warming

We can do a lot about global warming

We can do a lot about global warming

Save our lovely planet!
