A Climate Change Folk Song -- sung to the tune of "Summertime"

And we need someone to record this song on YouTube, want to give it a try?
Summertime.....and the temperatures are climbin'
Summertime.....in this song there'll be some rhymin'
O little Baby Earth.....don't you cry....

Summertime.....and the Earth is getting hotter
Summertime.....are you hiding, Harry Potter?

O little Baby Earth.....don't you sigh....

Summertime.....global warmin's doin' a numba
Summertime.....Marc Morano's gettin' dumma
O little Baby Earth.....don't you die....


Summertime......global warmin' means our days are number'd
Summertime.....Tony Watts is sleepin' in his slumber
O little Baby Earth.....don't ask why....

Summertime.....polar cities'll be our saviors
Summertime.....so be on your best behaviors
O little Baby Earth.....billions will die....

Summertime....I'm usin' humor here but not to humor youth...
O Sometime.....you'll all wake up and smell the cold hard truth
O little Baby Earth.....don't you cry....


Summertime......listen up all ye who still have hope
Summertime.....With adaptation we'll find ways to cope
O all you denial-ists .....you too shall die....



Summertime.....and the temperatures are climbin'
Summertime.....in this song there was some (good-natured) rhymin'
O little Baby Earth.....don't... you..... cry............


[END]

I think Danny Bloom would sing this song with gusto.
