Denial Tango

lyrics

They say the planet’s warming, but I’m convinced it’s not
- last Tuesday it was rather cool, today it’s not so hot

And if it’s getting hotter, I’m sure it’s not by much
- and prob’ly due to sunspots, volcanoes or some such

Or maybe it’s the Chinese, they make more smoke than us
- I know there’s many more of them - so let them catch the bus!

But one thing I am quite sure of: no need to make a fuss
– fire up those smoky chimneys, and sing…
Denial, I’m in denial - don’t talk to me of independent study,
or scientific trial
I’m in denial, deep in denial -
and as the waters rise around me
I’ll just hold my breath and say it isn’t so
I call myself a sceptic, and I believe it’s so -
I’m sceptical of anything I just don’t want to know 

Don’t give me CSIRO, or IPCC - I want some wacky
Viscount with a classical degree
He says it was much hotter,
X million years ago - I know that killed the dinosaurs,
but they were rather slow
It’s just a lot of scientists,
who think they’re in the know -
but I know I know better, let’s sing…
Denial, I’m in denial - when I see those eco-nazis,
I’ll raise my arm and shout “Sieg Heil!”
I’m in denial, deep in denial
- and as the waters rise around me I’ll just hold my breath
and say it isn’t so
The fires are not raging, no floods deluge the land,
those cyclones and tornadoes are just flashes in the pan 

The animals are doing fine, no species dying out,
and half the bloody planet isn’t choking in drought

The ice is not receding from either polar cap -
I go with Tony Abbott: it’s just a load of crap !

This round-the-world disaster is an evil greenie trap -
‘cause everybody knows the world is flat !
Denial, I’m in denial… And as the waters rise around me
I’ll just hold my breath and say it isn’t so…
oh no
As the waters rise around me I’ll just hold my breath
and say it isn’t so… don’t wanna know !

As the waters rise around me I’ll just hold my breath
and say “Blub blub blub blub” !
