Dennis Boothby

The King Has Got No Clothes

Dennis Boothby rocks away the climate blues.

Dennis Boothby rocks away the climate blues:


Introduction

We once told all our youngsters, tales in bed late at night 

Of devils and boogie man monsters, to make them be good from fright 

But now there’s one so scary, it’s made the whole world go quiet 

And this one is no fairy story, we see it on TV each night, every night.  

Verse 1

Beware global warming, the world is going to fry 

There’ll be droughts and storms and the rivers will run dry.

Chorus

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, A cold wind blows, THE KING HAS GOT NO CLOTHES 

Verse 2

Coral reefs are dying, jungles turning brown 

Polar bears are trying, real hard not to drown

Chorus

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, A cold wind blows, THE KING HAS GOT NO CLOTHES

Bridge 1

Humans must do penance, to the green gods pray 

And they said the sentence will be no more cars and go back to your caves 

Verse3

Beware global warming, we’re close to tipping point [Look out the sky is falling] 

The poles will soon start thawing, and seas begin to boil [We’ve had our final warning] 

Chorus

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, A cold wind blows, THE KING HAS GOT NO CLOTHES

Bridge 2

Every generation, has its doomsday scares 

Sad to say emission trading only makes new shonky millionaires.

Verse 4

Beware global warming, it’s now called climate change [The earth is overheating] 

Our planet’s now in mourning, and humans are to blame [You’d better all stop breathing] 

Chorus

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, A cold wind blows, THE KING HAS GOT NO CLOTHES 

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, A cold wind blows, THE KING HAS GOT NO CLOTHES 

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, A cold wind blows, THE KING HAS GOT NO CLOTHES
