The Lyrics

The icebergs have melt and the globe has changed
Cars got the axe and now boats don’t seem so strange
I’m soaked in my sweat, Due to UV rays
Now penguins are ghosts, no longer exist
Ice caps are toast and we must learn to swim
The deserts aren’t dry cause of glacier mist
It’s sad the oceans have rose and ice is missed
We must speak out, we must speak out, “Go Green!”
(Whoo-Oooo-Oooh!)
Never knew my body spray can makes the sky unclean

But Al Gore has warned me
That we’re at the Earth’s end
And we cannot pretend
We’re are all fine and we can survive here
We’re not existential
He’s so influential

Crazy? The whole planet is so screwed
Where’s our next home? Let’s go check out Neptune
Rainforests are mowed and monkeys are pissed
It’s sad tropics have snow the climates have switched
Green has gone brown, Green has gone brown, Plants died!
(Whoo-Ooooo-Oooh!)
Now it’s not safe to set your foot down anywhere outside!

It’s this Global Warming!
That f*cked up our planet!
The grass is now granite!
This place has gotten scary, won’t last here!
Not experimental
We’ve got the credentials
Rain’s gushing and gushing on down

Sell your Hummer please! (Puh-Leeze!)
We can’t drain these seven seas! (Geeze!)
Cause we must go green now! (Rain is reigning)
Or else the world’s gonna fry!

Cause Al Gore has warned me
The Earth is now too wet!
And we are all upset!
We killed off the canaries we had here
It’s so monumental
And not accidental
Keep flushing and flushing it down

This darn Global Warming!
Means death to the humans!
Like MAD’s Alfred Newman
We all asked, “What me worry?” now we fear
Our land’s fundamental
Now it’s temperamental
It’s squashing and squashing us out!

Al Gore has warned me!
About rising oceans!
It caused a commotion!
The world is one big scary disaster!
Not inconsequential
Ain’t confidential
We’re splashing and splashing around!

This parody is just another example of the garbage liberals force down our throats. There is no such thing as global warming. It is a hoax! I don't know what you're trying to pull here with your scare tactics and environmental "eco-terrorist" philosophies. This is obviously no surprise for the extreme leftists out there who put a higher value of the life of a tree than on the life of the unborn.

Good parody, Matt: I particularly liked the "screwed/Neptune" and "planet/granite rhymes.

PI: No surprise reading your comment. Why is it the neocons place a higher value on their wallets than anything else? Global warming exists: the question is how much of it is man made. The left does have a lot of flawed ideology about man's effects on global warming, but conserving resources is something, oh, I dunno, something a CONSERVATIVE might do? Just a thought.

Red Ant, people that actually work for a living (you happen to refer to them as "neocons holding on to their wallets") have put time and effort into their savings and now it's all gone, thanks to the socialists and Barack Obama. Why is it that the liberals begrudge hardworking Americans the money that they earned? Are you people just looking for a hand-out? Again, "global warming" DOES NOT exist. How do you explain the cold winter? It even snowed in Baghdad for the first time in history! Nancy Pelosi scheduled a speech on global warming and was snowed in. Talk about a joke! Even Al Gore admits now that global warming is a farce!

PI, you're really not worth the time to reply to again, but I will. If you'd like to call it climate change instead of global warming, so be it. Why is it you assume I'm a liberal? I work hard for the money I make, and though this year has been financially craptacular for me and I probably qualify for govt assistance, I don't take it. So no, I'm not looking for a handout, I'm looking for a better economy so that I can work more.

I'm failing to see how you put the downturn of the economy on Obama - we've been mired knee-deep in economic sh*t for a long time, and BOTH parties are to blame for this. Just because the worst of it is likely to happen on Obama's watch doesn't make him reponsible for it anymore than saying Bush was responsible for 9/11.

How do I explain the cold winter? You didn't really ask me that question, did you? Google is your friend...

"Even Al Gore admits now that global warming is a farce!" - - cite your sources for such a claim.

L 'Ant Rouge, glad to hear that you are 'conserving your energy', Sir! . . as the weekend will be here soon .

Matthias, great parody, PI--I won't even bother, another run of the mill person in denial who speaks between the wrong set of cheeks. . .I'll save my breath for someone worth talking to, 5's Matty

I'm with Hu's On First. That "O'bama Got Run Over" parody has been deleted yet again, because it contained lots of border-line libel, which Chucky is not gonna tolerate on this site.

As for this parody, I think it's well written and paced, so I'm gonna vote 5 5 5 on it.

555, great parody! I agree with you that Bush is Satan! Wait, that's not what the parody is about? Ah well, my rating still stands. And Karamel to Red Ant next time I see him on the boards for his comments to PI.

(ABC A & B) No comment on the sociopolitical aspects of the parody, but it's a well-executed and singable parody of a good OS. 5s.

(ABC-AB) I can't tell which is funnier: this parody or Dave's "wrong set of cheeks" crack. Great parody to a great OS, 555!

Abc...here then is the winner of the round I missed thanks to my stupidity. Well done Matty, especially considering I could not bear listening to that OS more than halfway!

(ABC Tournament) Great message, Matt! I tell you, it's not easy being green nowadays! This is what I do to stay green: a) Recycle bottles, plastics, and glass. b) Limit electrical use. c) Use leftover water/liquids for watering houseplants and outdoor plants. d) Take shorter showers. e) Use garbage for garden compost. Yep, other than driving, when it's a nice day, I go for walks. Here's some Eco-Friendly 5's.

If penguins were ghosts, InThe00s would be haunted.... not much of an environmental person, I guess, but a great parody, to a decently hard song. 555
