Save the Whales (Screw the Manatees)

By Daniel Kelly – 2022 (to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic)

I turned the television on just the other day,
the scientists are saying climate change is here to stay,
If we can’t reduce emissions there’s a price we have to pay
We’re all going to die

Save the Whales, Screw the Manatees
Save the Whales, Screw the Manatees,
Save the Whales, Screw the Manatees,
We’re all going to die.

The plastic in the ocean is a terrible disgrace,
Straws and bags and fishing nets clogging up the place,
Killing all the turtles, fish and octopusal race,
They’re all going to die.

We’ve been cutting down the forests now for a hundred years,
Displacing all the animals, ignoring all the fears,
With the creatures all extinct it’s too late for shedding tears,
We’re all going to die.

The governments are puppets of the 1% elite,
Greta and the protesters have no way to compete
The only way to change it is to get up on your feet,
Or we’re all going to die
