Anti-Nuke Environmentalists

Lyrics by: Sunny Armer
Gaggle: NYC Metro
Tune: She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain

Call us anti-nuke environmentalists.We are anti-nuke environmentalists.
We protect our air and water,
You can’t lead us to the slaughter,
‘Cause we’re anti-nuke environmentalists.

We know tons of facts regarding nuclear waste.
When it leaks into our water there’s no taste,
But it’s poison all the same.
Entergy is who we blame,
So we’re anti-nuke environmentalists.

If you get your self relicensed and still run,
There’ll be lots more dead fish lying in the sun,
More strontium in our babies’ teeth,
More leaks that millions hate to breathe,
With no evacuation they can’t run.

There are twenty tons of new waste every year,
All created by the Indian Point plant here.
You can swear on our own Bibles
That it’s “safe, secure, and vital,”
But we’re sure not gonna swallow what we hear.

When we think about Chernobyl, we have qualms.
You’re a target for those terrorists with bombs.
There’s no anti-nuke insurance,
Which means there’s no assurance
That we will not all be blown to Kingdom Come.

Bring us solar, bring us hydro, bring us wind.
Bring us energy from sources that won’t end.
Before we could trust uranium,
We’d need holes in our cranium.
Call us anti-nuke environmentalists.

Note: Entergy runs the Indian Point nuclear power plant, which it is trying to get re-licensed for 20 more years. Safe, secure, and vital” is the plant’s slogan.
