Fracker’s Wonderland

Fracker’s Wonderland
Sung to the tune of “Winter Wonderland”  Fracker's Wonderland

TV’s on – are you watching?
Another pipeline they’re hawking.
The gas we don’t need –
it’s not even cheap
Welcome to the Fracker’s Wonderland

In the “news” you will hear it:
“Get off oil – show U.S. spirit”
Fracked gas is toxic
It makes us all sick
Welcome to The Fracker’s Wonderland

Now’s the moment to get off of fossils
and invest in energy like sun!
We’ll be all so happy when do it –
‘til then we’ve all got work that must be done.

The gas men make a killing
‘til the people are willing
to get up and fight with all of our might –
And then we’ll tear down Fracker Wonderland!
to get up and fight with all of our might
And then we’ll tear down Fracker Wonderland!

It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Fracked Gas
Sung to the tune “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”

It’s beginning to smell a lot like fracked gas
Everywhere you go –
‘Round the park and old N.Y.U.
There’s an odor like doggie doo
Or Famous Ray’s most rancid pizza dough.

It’s beginning to smell a lot like fracked gas
All around the Square.
It caught Villagers by surprise –
Shows you what gas money buys
Theft of our clean air.

Those who represent us aren’t listening ‘cuz
We’re not getting power that’s clean.
Instead we get told that the commons is sold
To a profiteering machine.
Now radon in the shower makes our hair glow neon green

landscape ever greenIt is going to look a lot like hell here
All over New York State
Get up and get in the streets
Make calls up to Albany
Get people to wake up ‘fore it’s too late!

We’ve got much better choices here than fracked gas
Don’t buy the gas men’s dope!
When we stand and fight as one
You can bet it’s a home run
For our future hope.

O Spectra Gas
Sung to the tune of “O Tannenbaum”

O Spectra Gas, O Spectra Gas
Please listen to our voices!
O Spectra Gas, O Spectra Gas
Make better energy choices!

You drill for gas beneath our feet
Releasing methane we must breathe.
O Spectra Gas, O Spectra Gas
Consider what you’re doing.

O Spectra Gas, O Spectra Gas
Think of the earth we’re losing
The children cry, the parents seek
A cleaner form of energy

O Spectra Gas, O Spectra Gas
Please help protect our future
O Spectra Gas, O Spectra Gas
We’re fighting for our future

cuomo 1One of the songs the Ever Green Singers will be sharing in the Village. Come join us!

Hey Cuomo!
Sung to the tune of “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow”

Oh the gas pipelines are frightful
But renewables are so delightful
You’re the only one who gets to say “Go!”
Hey Cuomo! Hey Cuomo! Hey Cuomo!

Yes, fracked gas should be stopping
But the gas men are still shopping.
Bring energy costs down low.
Hey Cuomo! Hey Cuomo! Hey Cuomo!
We won’t give up without a fight
We know there will be a next storm!
And when we all start to unite –
Renewables can keep our homes warm!
Fossil fuels are quickly dying
The gas industry’s still lying.
New Yorkers say “Fracking no!”
Hey Cuomo! Hey Cuomo! Hey Cuomo!
Tell ‘em “No!”, Tell ‘em “No!”, Tell ‘em “No!”

Spectra Pipeline in the Village

Spectra Energy is the company that has the contract for the pipeline that is delivering fracked gas from the Marcellus Shale, under the Hudson River, under the West Village and all its inhabitants. Just one of the stories about Spectra Energy’s safety protocol can be found HERE.

The Evergreen Singers will be caroling in the streets during the month  of December to let Manhattanites know about the pipeline. Here’s one of the songs we’ll be sharing – and hope you join with us.

Boom! The Pipeline Does Explode
Sung to the tune of “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”

Boom! The pipeline does explode
Making canyons in the road
Great big chunks of West 12th Street
Are no longer at our feet.
Look! There goes my next door neighbor
Flying like a Scot’s tossed caber!
Gotham’s disappearing streets –
Courtesy of gas industry
Boom! The pipeline does explode
Making canyons in the road.

Boom! The pipeline does explode
Making canyons in the road.
Spectra is the company that
Brought all this to you and me.
Moved by Greed, this elite chosen
Are nowhere near the next explosion.
Boom! The pipeline does explode
Making canyons in the road.

Boom! The pipeline does explode
Making canyons in the road.
Look around and say “good bye”
All these things could go sky high.
Could it be that children’s playground?
The dog run with its rescued greyhounds?
Fracked gas doesn’t take an aim –
The entire Village – up in flames!
Boom! The pipeline does exlode
Making canyons in the road.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio,
lend your ear this way
You represent New Yorkers –
hear what we have to say.
We never wanted poison gas
To come into our homes.
We want our water pure and clean
From Brooklyn up to Rome.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio, it’s important that you see
