GRANNY GAGGLE SONG
Oh, we're a gaggle of Grannies,
Urging you off of your fannies,
We want to be heard, It isn't absurd,
Climate change is real!
So, join this gaggle of Grannies,
Get up off of your fannies,
Let's put the deniers feet to the fires,
Jayden - Louisiana.
THE CLIMATE SONG
We've got to wake up, We've got to wise up,
We've got to open our eyes and do it
Now! Now! Now!
We've got to build a better future,
And we need to start right now!

Tune: "Our Country Tis of Thee"
Lyrics: Raging Grannies Eugene
Parents and friends, we must
Earn back Our Children's Trust,
And save our land.
All people must be brave,
This is our chance to save
Our coastlines from the waves
The time's at hand.
We must make promises,
Shun Doubting Thomases,
Clean up the air.
A dirty atmosphere
Kills all that we hold dear,
We have a job that is quite clear:
Protect our air.
Our children's lives depend
On laws that will defend
Our planet's health.
Let's challenge corporate greed,
Give up what we don't need,
Together we will then succeed.
