Christmas in the future

Standard

Christ-a-mas 2-ought-14
Sung to the tune of “Silver Bells

Village sidewalks,Image
Pillaged sidewalks
The aroma’s benzene!
As we stroll through this quaint part of Gotham.
So much hist’ry –
Makes one misty –
For so much of it’s gone
In a neighborhood that once was awesome.

Chorus:
On Bleecker Street
Gas fumes secrete –
It’s Christmas time in the future.
The nightclub scene
Is sparse and lean –
It’s Christ-a-mas 2-ought-14

What a shambles
As we ramble
Up to Gansevoort Street
Passing so many empty apartments.
Seems the pipeline
Took our lifelines,
Our clean water and air
And a few landmark buildings to boot.
Chorus

Ever Green Singers introduced their Holiday Songbook last night to Washington Square.

Radon Gas is Flowing Through Town

Standard

smokey says radon ever greenRadon Gas is Flowing Through Town
Sung to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”

You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Radon gas is flowing through town

In high-pressure pipes, terrible price
Gonna wipe out both naughty and nice
Radon gas is flowing through town

It kills you when you’re sleeping ,
It kills when you’re awake,
It kills if you’ve been bad or good,
So get real for goodness sake!

Oh! You better speak out and tell ’em to fly
Shut Spectra down – I’m telling you why
Radon gas is flowing through town
Radon gas is flowing through town

Ever green word cloud

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

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.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio

Standard

One of the songs the Ever Green Singers will be sharing when we go a-caroling
Mayor Bill DeBlasio
Sung to the tune of “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas”     Image
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.
