The Power in Our Hands (One World)

The Power in Our Hands (One World)

One world One world

Climate’s changing Our world

We’re gonna build a better world

A safer world, a greener world.

We’re gonna make a cleaner world,

With healthy air that’s everywhere.

We’ve got the power in our hands

To build a better land

To build a better land for me and you

With water wind and sun,

Our power’s just begun

We’ll make the climate safe for me and you

One world This world

We must save Our world

Now Paris is the meeting place

Where we can save the human race

Where all the nations must unite

So we can win this global fight.

It’s time to follow nature’s rules

Say good-bye to fossil fuels

This year in Paris we can make our dreams come true

We’ve got the power in our hands

The power in our hands

Together we can build a better land

Together we can build a better land.

A better land.

One world, one world, one world.

We Dreamed a Dream

To the tune of I Dreamed a Dream from the play Les Misérables. The song decries what we are losing by destroying the stable climate that humans have enjoyed for the past 10,000 years.

Stormy Weather (tune: Stormy Weather)

Stormy Weather  —

Music by Harold Arlen, original lyrics by Ted Koehler

We know why it’s too hot now in July

Global Warming

More heat waves and storm clouds are forming

Keeps stormin’ all the time

So beware droughts & floods are everywhere

Global warming

We can’t say we ain’t had no warning

Getting worse all the time. . .the time

The weather’s worse all the time

Too much CO2–the climate’s getting hotter

Keeps on goin’ up so we have got to stop her

We can’t leave the earth to think that we’ve forgot her

Can’t burn more fossil fuels

Can’t go on–we’ll be gone like mastadons

Stormy weather

Let’s you and I get together

Before we run out of time

We’re runnin’ out of time.

.

I look around heavy hearted and sad

The climate’s not  like the old one we had

Green-house effect makin’  weather oh so bad

This warmin’ and stormin’ and burnin’ and bakin’ is makin’ me mad

Youtube version

Can’t go on–we’ll be gone like mastadons

Stormy weather

Let’s you and I get together

Stop burning fossil fuels

Stop being fossil fools

Electric Cars (tune: Oh Tannenbaum)

Electric Cars

(Tune:  Oh, Tannenbaum)

Electric cars, electric cars

You’ll make our lives much greener

Electric cars, electric cars

You make our air much cleaner

No oil imports or spills from you

And you’ll reduce our CO2

Electric cars, electric cars

You make our lives much greener.

Wonderin’ Where the Winter Ever Went (tune: Winter Wonderland)

Wonderin’ Where the Winter Ever Went
(tune: Winter Wonderland)

Up in the air, we’ve pumped CO2
And we didn’t care, just what it would do
Now everyone’s hopin’, ‘cause we’re all copin’ Together
It’s a new season; it’s a new clime.
Glaciers are melting, all of the time
It’s all too thrillin’; we just need more chill in’
The weather

Oceans rise; droughts are drier
Stormy skies; floods are higher
Something’s not right, we’re puzzled tonight
Wonderin’ where the winter ever went

Gone away are the cold days
They don’t stay, as in old days
The weather’s all wrong, as we sing our song
Wonderin’ where the winter ever went.

In the papers they say you’ll have no job
If you do not keep on burning oil.
We say “don’t believe them–It’s a snow job.
We can use the sun and wind and still not boil”

Corporations conspire
Just to make profits higher
They should be afraid
Of the mess that they’ve made
(As we) wonder where the winter ever went.

In the Congress they have put deniers
People who think that the earth is flat
They say scientists are simply liars
And burning fossil fuels is where it’s at.

In the Gulf—they keep drillin’
Though the oil, keeps on spillin’.
The wars lingers on, we wake up each dawn.
Wonderin’ where the winter ever went.

We Are Fighting Global Warming

 (Tune:  We Are Climbing Jacob’s Ladder; Piano:  Fred Ewing)

We are fighting global warming

We are fighting global warming

We are fighting global warming–people of the earth.

Temperatures keep getting warmer

CO2 keeps going higher

Temperatures keep getting warmer–we’ve got to make it stop.

We can live on wind and solar.

All our cars can be electric.

We can live on wind and solar–no more fossil fuels.

We are fighting global warming

We are fighting global warming

We are fighting global warming–people of the earth.

Gospel/Folk Medley

Gospel/Folk Global Warming Medley

Piano by Fred Ewing

Humanity, where we gonna run to?   (tune Oh Sinner Man)

Humanity, where we gonna run to?

Humanity, where we gonna run to?

Now that it’s too hot?

Run to the sea, the sea is a risin’,

Run to the rock, the rock is a bakin’,

Run to the trees, the trees are a burnin’

Now that it’s too hot!

Stop global warmin’                                        (tune:  Wade in the Water)

Stop global warmin’ children

Stop global warmin’

Gotta stop a burnin’ this carbon

Deforestation

Deforestation’s murder

Deforestation

Gotta stop a burnin’ and cuttin’

CO2 oh CO2                                                        (tune:  Careless Love)

CO2 oh CO2

CO2 oh CO2

We’ve got much too much of you.

What a friend we have in solar                   (tune: What a friend we have in Jesus)

It’s the way to clean our air

We can stop this global warming

Sun’s got energy to spare

Oh what price we pay for carbon

CO2 pollutes the air

Now’s the time to turn to solar

Sun’s got energy to spare
