The Lyrics

Once there were oceans, warmed by the sun
Whales were endangered by seismic testing done
Then there were oil spills, and black plumes high above
Then Greenpeace stepped up and said, "who do you love"?
You are the keepers of blue seas and green fields

Forests are gone now, much logging done
Gone are rain forests where rivers used to run
Trees turned to Kleenex, on which you blow your nose
Think about that when you're using one of those
Where are the keepers of trees and green fields?

I should appreciate the sun today
Toxins can't cover the earth on which we play
Who will protect the sky, the air, the seas?
Maybe they'll be salvaged, maybe by Greenpeace

Greenpeace won't sit by and watch forests burn
Greenpeace will campaign until some people learn
You can't be happy if you don't have a home
Amid the wastelands and poisons, will you roam?
Home is what Greenpeace and we need to save

Sincere and heartfelf parody. Nice one, Royce.555

Maybe there is another category of parody that gets points on tears instead of laughs. This made me cry.

Well done, Royce, but I don't view Greenpeace as favorably as you do. Greenpeace strongly supports the Kyoto protocol, the international treaty on greenhouse gases, drafted by scare-mongerers at the United Nations, which would force draconian regulatory actions on industry without any scientific consensus that a crisis actually exists.

Very well done parody, Royce. JJ, just this past week, an international scientific consensus finally did emerge that there is now incontrovertible, objective proof that humans' greenhouse gas emissions are indeed responsible for global warming. We need to be better stewards of God's creation.
