Save the World Club Rap

We live in a world moving faster and faster
Heard it so often we’re bored with disaster
Governments seem to be losing their grip
Nowhere to jump from this sinking ship
The bigger the problem the smaller we feel
But the things that we do help the planet to heal

Chorus:

Make a change, Make a change,
Together we can make a change,

Switch off a light to save energy
Don’t fill the kettle to make one cup of tea
And to recycle the paper, the metal, the glass
Stops the landfill tips filling up too fast
Avoid buying objects you don’t really need
Resist the temptation of envy and greed
Don’t get caught in the consumer trap
That’s just part of the Save The World Club Rap

Realise the power of the individual
Remember that love is a special tool
We’re knocking down our Berlin Wall
Don’t obey no special rule
The planet is sending a rallying call

By losing that conformist mould
You follow your heart, not what you’re told
Thousands of people throughout the land
Doing their thing and making a stand
Actions and deeds that free the mind
Get rid of those thoughts of a guilty kind

Nurture the earth with a velvet glove
Coming up from below on a wave of love
This changeover is moving fast
This ain’t fashion, it’s going to last
By being part of this solution
You join in the planetary revolution
So love the world for all its worth
Between us we will save the earth…

We Are All Members Now

Oh dear; What are we to do
Now we are here in 2002
We were told that things will get much better
We are battered by wind; our socks are much wetter
And everything is getting more extreme
Even opinions if you know what I mean
Everyone always standing their ground
Working on theories that are not always sound
Forever convinced that they’re always right
It’s the principle they are prepared to fight
Until the whole thing ends up in tears
And buildings collapse which increases our fears
And despite what politicians on their podium sing
None of this seems to change anything

But what is the point of winning a war
If there’s not going to be any air any more
Or the sun is too strong when it burns down on us
Because of our failure to get on a bus
To carry our lives like there’s no future
Bury our heads in the latest computer
When we should be helping to cure the earth
For the children of which our Mothers give birth
Lets give them a future on this our terrain
Put the whole earth under less of a strain
Not really the others that are making the mess
But maintaining our life-style is helping the stress
We’re seduced with the things that produce the pollution
Lets do what we can to create a solution
That means doing your bit without any doubt
That’s what Save The World Club’s all about
Not a platform for the environmentalist
We’ve all got guilty tattooed on our wrist
Don’t stay on the treadmill just going around
We’ll all be united by respecting our ground
Don’t leave it to your mother, father, sister or son
The world needs us all; that’s everyone!…

10th Anniversary Rap

A poem to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Save The World Club…

The Save The World Club started small
With hardly anyone at all
A few people struggling to make a change
Saving the world was our range
Too many problems at the same time
Seemed like an endless uphill climb
But one day in our wellies, cleaning pollution
Was writ in the mucjk another solution
There’s six of us here having some fun
Clearing the trash and enjoying the sun
But if its all of the fish that we’re trying to save
We’ve got to grow from a few to a blinding rave
If there were thousands of people doing a bit
We’d clear it all in just one hit
And we realised that was all it takes
Everyone joins for a for all our sakes!…

Cycle Rap-ture

Weaving through traffic strikes terror in your heart
Car drivers break all the rules for a start
A blinding rush to get from A to B
What’s on the roads is anarchy
Rob us of land and our clean air
Half the time don’t even know you’re there
Then there’s the driver in a different place
Listening to his heavy bass
Across the white line, a bit out of his head
That sort of action leaves hundreds dead
Doesn’t even take his hands off the phone
Tearing at you all alone
Heading for the twilight zone
Kind of left his brain at home
Ride around like they’re all mad
And you’ll survive – it’s not too bad
Use instinct not what is said
You then get skilful , not end up dead
Tho’ sometimes it’s so scary your pants get wet
For the future of the planet we’ll beat them yet
So while those fools in the jams they sit
You’re way ahead and keeping fit
For transport it’s really cheap
Whilst drivers’ bills are always steep
Sitting still they fantasize
Taken in by all the lies
Another lane on the motorway
Makes cars go fast like the adverts say
Yes we leave them sitting all frustrated
Whilst we’re up front with transport underrated
And suddenly we’re on our own
Down a back street all alone
Drifting along while the pedals turn
Feeling the freedom our spirits yearn
Cycle and rider seem as one
This well-being’s a lot of fun
See – riding a bike is a bit like life
Dodging and weaving to avoid strife
When you whizz down a hill you truly fly
Wild cycling sensations get you high
Most of the time it’s joking and larking
And always a guarantee of free parking
Eight bikes go in one car’s space
Sixteen hundred to a gallon puts a smile on our face
Why drive and be grim whilst to ride is all smiles
Half the cars journeys are less than two miles
So riding a bike helps the air and the land
Which is why you must join us, not just make a stand
A woman or a man, a lad or a lass
Come and join us on the Critical Mass*

We’re not asking for equality
But for the sake of our ecology
We’ve got to have priority.…
