The Song:

What can we do about global warming?

(to the tune of ‘What can we do with the drunken sailor?’)

Chorus:    
What can we do about global warming?
What can we do about global warming?
What can we do about global warming?
Shrink our carbon footprint!

Verse 1.     
Walk, cycle, bus and train
Car share, avoid the plane
Holiday at home, learn to love the rain
Shrink our carbon footprint!

Verse 2.    
Insulate homes and get them lined
Stop oil, gas and coal being mined
Use tidal, solar, wind and find we’ll
Shrink our carbon footprint!

Chorus:
What can we do about global warming?
What can we do about global warming?
What can we do about global warming?
Shrink our carbon footprint!

Verse 3.  
Organic, local, seasonal eating
Recycle, mend, turn down the heating
Share, cooperate, stop competing
Shrink our carbon footprint!

Verse 4.  
Watch out! The seas are rising
Cry out! The seas are rising
Bale out! The seas are rising
Save our lovely planet!

Verse 5.  
Don’t believe the greenwash, keep on prying
Tax millionaires, stop envy buying
Climate change deniers, they’re all lying
Shrink our carbon footprint!

Chorus:
We can do a lot about global warming
We can do a lot about global warming
We can do a lot about global warming
Save our lovely planet!

Lyrics by Oliver Swingler and Making Waves choir, Cullercoats, UK – Version 3 March 2013

There is also a petition to call upon the Department for Education to promote the singing of the Global Warming song in primary and secondary schools as a way of showing that the Government is serious about shrinking the national carbon footprint:  Global Warming song petition
