Bye Bye Coal
Bye Bye fossil fuels
Hello renewables
Energy from the sky
Bye bye Coal
reduce Climate stress
Hello cleverness
Goodbye to coal goodbye

Got thru denial, I’m thru with doubt
Let’s get together, work this thing out
and here’s the reason, I feel so free
I got good people surrounding me

Bye Bye Coal …

We light the dark now with something new
We’ll still be happy (with) no fossil fuel
And here’s the reason ….

Bye bye coal …

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.

(Tony won’t hear facts, says he’s a denier,
Scrap the carbon tax, he’s out of 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.
