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
Chorus: 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
