The Fixing to Burn Rag

Parody of a protest song by Country Joe and the Fish

Chorus:
And it’s one two three what are waiting for?
Sea levels are starting to rise
Air temperatures reach new highs
Now it’s five six seven and it’s nearly too late
Pollute the sea, pollute the sky
Whoopee we’re all gonna die!

So come on all you human kids
Ecology is on the skids
Ice is melting off the shelf
You can’t fix things like that yourself
Polar ice caps getting thin
And we’re all gonna burn in the end

[Chorus]

Just think about the polar bears
Victims of our world affairs
So give your congressman a shout
And tell him what it’s all about
If we don’t change our ways my friend
We’re all gonna burn in the end

[Chorus]

So how much money does it take
To give environment a break
Polluted air is getting thick
And rising like a hockey stick
We’ll reach a point of no return
And that’s when we’re all gonna burn

[Chorus]

People we must find solution
For our planets air pollution
We demand a contribution
From our nation’s institutions
Let’s fix this world where we belong
And hope it doesn’t take too long

[Chorus]
