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

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

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.

TAG:
Mayor Bill DeBlasio, it’s important that you see
You were elected to undo
