I’m a Believer

original words and music by Neil Diamond, 1966 made famous by The Monkees parodied by Jenny Fitzgibbon, 2013

Tune HERE
I thought climate change was just a fairy tale
Meant for someone else but not for me,
Carbon out to get me,
What a nasty dream,
Spoiling all my luxury schemes.

That I could not face, so I’m a denier,
There’s just a trace of doubt in my mind,
But I’m in fear Ooh Ooh I’m a denier,
Full of desire to stay blind.

I thought seasons used to be a given thing,
Spring was cool and summer not too hot,
But there’s extremes of hot and cold now,
Wild  cyclones are a pain,
When the farmers need the sunshine they get rain.

So the facts I face, now I’m a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind,
Earth’s climate changed, oo oo
I’m a believer, We can save her if we try.

(ScoMo won’t hear facts, he’s such a denier,
No carbon tax, not using his mind,
And his mining mates, ooh ooh rich deniers,
with lobbyist liars, highly paid.)

But there’s extremes of hot and cold now,
Wild cyclones are a pain,
When the farmers need the sunshine they get rain.
So the facts I face, now I’m a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind,
Earth’s climate changed, ooh ooh I’m a believer,

We can save her if we try.
