Me And My Shadow


(To the old tune of the same name.)

Me and my shadow
Strolling by the lake one day.
Me and my shadow.
Which will be the one to break away?
Yes, I can see you there
We are a pair
If you were lost I know that I'd care.
Yes, me and my shadow
On a walking holiday.

There's lots of it!

The great idea.


If I were a Millionaire. I'm not, and more's the pity,
I wouldn't invest in buildings in the heart of any city.
I'd put millions into Hot Rocks, because I'm fascinated
By the endless possibilities that soon may be created.
If I were a Scientist. I'm not; I'm really somewhat dim,
My chances of solving 'everything' would be extremely slim!
I'd concentrate on  Hot Rocks, because it seems to me
That Hot Rocks will enable us to prevent calamity.
Way, way down and down and down, and way, way down some more
Hot rocks can be located and the energy that they store.
In very simple terms, it seems that pipes can be injected,
Then water poured down to the rocks and, when it's hot, collected.
When the boiling water's up again it will convert to steam,
Creating the pristine energy that is everybody's dream.
If I were a Millionaire Scientist I'd give all I was worth
To the people who're Hot-Rocking, the saviours of the earth.
Geo-thermal plant.

Australian hot-spots.

A waterside walk
with my shadow in tow—oh,
the places we’ll go!
