Climate Change (Rima’s Song)

Lyrics by: Rima Segal
Gaggle: Rochester
Tune: The Ash Grove

The glaciers are melting, the seas, they are rising
And people are sweltering, as temperatures soar
The land is disappearing, as oceans are encroaching
The people are fleeing, away from the shore.
In Congress they bicker, too stubborn to dicker.
While earth’s getting sicker, they don’t do a thing.
The problem’s wide-ranging: the climate is changing,
And it is endangering, our lives as we sing.

We must be aware, that unless we take care
That our planet so fair, could become a dead stone
The polar bears are dying, some people are crying:
We must stop denying, climate’s altering our home.
Ig-nore nay-sa- ers bla-ther, let’s work hard together
To stab-lize the weather, and tamp warming down.
Without any derision, let’s take the decision
To curb our emissions, before cities drown.

(Bridge melody to end)

If we don’t pay heed, our children will need
To pay for our greed: with lives hot and mean.
I hear we’ve less than 20, years left to change plenty
Or else, not so gently, we’ll fade from the scene.
