Don’t Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella

Tune: Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella

Don’t let a smile be your umbrellaOn a sunny, sunny day.
Because you may get melanoma
Till the ozone layer’s okay.
A parasol is your best line of defense.
Though we stopped using hairspray,
The danger’s immense.
Pour on your sunscreen, wear a broad hat
On a sunny, sunny day.

Don’t breathe in “fresh air”
’Cause there is none
On a breezy, breezy day.
Don’t let your lungs fill with pollutants
Or with asthma you will pay.
Emissions from big cars can make us all choke.
And coal that’s “clean” is just a myth, it’s mirrors and smoke.
So stay indoors and use air filters
On a breezy, breezy day.

Go out and buy a strong umbrella
For a hurricane-y day.
While climate change keeps changing weather,
Greenhouse gases have their way.
While the USA hid NASA’s reports,
Wind-surfing through tsunamis was the world’s hottest sport.
Let’s stop our polar caps from melting
On these sunny, sunny days.

It’s inconvenient–
Shrink carbon footprints right away!]
