Please, pour yourself a cup of tea and join us . . .

We are out in the streets promoting peace, justice, social and economic equality through song and humour.

Just a little something for International Women’s day later this week (8 March), a bit of music from the Canada-led 15 year plus phenomenon, the now International Raging Grannies and one of their latest songs, Climate Change is Coming to Town.

Take a few minutes and listen to the Toronto Raging Grannies Climate Change is Coming to Town (it’s brilliant) Click here.

(To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

Oh, you better reduce your greenhouse gases.
You better educate the public masses.
Climate change is coming to town!

It knows that you’ve been stalling.
While land turns into lakes.
Our inaction is appalling.
So commit for the earth’s sake.

Oh, you better invest in wind and solar.
Cause Santa needs this to save the polar.
Climate change is coming to town!

Oh, you better create low emission transport.
Santa does this with reindeer escorts.
Climate change is coming to town!

Santa knows that you’re not naughty.
He sees that you do care.
So tell our politicians.

We don’t need more hot air.
Oh if we want to keep our ice and our snow.
We have to keep commitments to Kyoto.
Climate change is coming to town!

Oh it’ll take work, it won’t be a breeze.
But we have to act now to drop those degrees.
Climate change is coming . . .
Climate change is coming . . .
Climate change is coming . . .
to town!
