Do you see what I see? (Said the Gas Man…)

Standard

do you hear ever greenSaid the Gas Man
Sung to the Tune of “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

 

 

Said the Gas Man to the rural town:
Do you see what I see?
Echo: Do you see what I see?
All around your homes, rural town –
Do you see what I see?
Echo: Do you see what I see?
Big cash! Big cash – just to lease your land!
You’ll have riches at your command!
You’ll have riches at your command!

Said the landowners to the Gas Man –
Do you hear what we hear?
Echo: Do you hear what we hear?
All around the country, Gas Man –
Do you hear what we hear?
Echo: Do you hear what we hear?
There’s poison through the land if we continue on this track
And no cash can ever get it back.
No cash can ever get it back.

Said the representatives to the folks:
Do you know what I know?
Echo: Do you know what I know?
The poison from the gas is just a joke.
Do you know what I know?
Echo: Do you know what I know?
The gas will bring us U.S. energy
It’s our only choice – don’t you see?
It’s our only choice – don’t you see?

Said the people in one voice loud and strong:
We have a better vision!
Echo: We have a better vision!
Our future’s not for you to string along!
We have a better vision!
Echo: We have a better vision!
There are so many choices we can make
That don’t put our future at stake!
That don’t put our future at stake!

Fracker’s Wonderland

Standard

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!

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

Standard

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.
