WE’LL BUILD A PIPELINE IN PARADISE

There is still debate over whether to build the Keystone XL oil-pipeline while the West is running out of water.

WE’LL BUILD A PIPELINE IN PARADISE
(To tune of “Stairway to Paradise,” by George and Ira Gershwin, from the 1951 film, “An American in Paris.”

We’ll build a pipeline in Paradise
Built to get oil close to you
We’re gonna build it at any price
If the planet turns to goo

Go fill your cars
Spread CO2 above town
We’ll soon be Mars
There’ll be no people around

We’ll build a pipeline in Paradise
Bidding Paradise adieu.

Why not a pipeline into LA.?
Where their short of H2O
Why build an oil-pipeline anyway?
Oh, you can’t drink crude, you know

When throats are dry
Into a permanent drought
Then by-and-by
We’ll all have figured it out

We’ll built a pipeline in Paradise
Spoiling Paradise no doubt!
