Radon, Radon, Radon!

Standard

Radon, Radon, Radon
Sung to the tune of “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel”

 Radon, Radon, Radon,radon dreidel
You’re coming out my spout.
Radon, Radon, Radon,
My hair is falling out.

Radon, Radon, Radon
It’s said you’re here to stay
And all of us New Yorkers
Will get mass tissue decay.

So who do we take time to thank?
Spectra and its allies.
But our glass is half full
‘cause our rents will stabilize!

If I want to gamble
I’ll use dreidels, treats, and gelt.arch santa hat SNOW
I won’t let Spectra Gas decide
To gamble with my health.

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

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.
