Don't let them burn our little planet down
Words and recording: Bruce Bartlett, Stellenbosch, South Africa
To the tune of "Don't let them tear our little huisie down" by Des and Dawn Lindberg

Well it was 1985
Satellite pictures came in live
Something strange was going on at the south pole
'Cause in the upper stratosphere
Right where the ozone should appear
There shows up nothing but a gaping hole

Don't let them burn our little planet down
Why not just leave fossil fuels in the ground
Don't let us lose the only home we've got
'Cause the icecaps are a-melting and it's getting bloody hot

In '92 there was Rio
Which postponed to Kyoto
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
But the protocol could never fly
The States refused to ratify
And now 350 is almost out of range

Well now they're talking cap-and-trade
A Faustian pact I'm afraid
Offset emissions while the planet goes to hell!
'Cause it's anthropogenic carbon
That should end at Copenhagen
Come on Obama honour your Nobel
