Hooray! That Global Warming's on the run!
Though the future doesn't look a lot of fun!
We over-stepped our boundaries
With oil-wells and with foundries
And with smoke that almost blotted out the sun.
Hooray! That Global Warming's in our sites!
We've been using far too many shining lights!
We now must all pay heed
To our gourmandising greed!
Look at us! We're scarcely fitting in our tights!
Hooray! That Global Warming will be licked!
Due to Credit Crunch some habits will be kicked!
No more multiplying cars!
No more spaceships off to Mars!
(Though it isn't quite the cure that I'd have picked!)
Hooray! That Global Warming seemed so dire!
Now poverty will help to quench the fire.
When once we learn to handle,
Evenings with just one candle
The thought of future cooling will inspire!
Hooray! Another Ice Age on the way!
But that is not encouraging to say!
What we heartily desire
Isn't ice and isn't fire!
We just wish that all this angst would go away!
