Cho: Atomic waste, perseveres
It sticks around, (in dangerous form!)
Two hundred thousand years!! (Repeat)
It boils in vats stored underground
It’s got to be watched all year ’round
And human beings can make mistakes
One little slip is all it takes!
We don’t mind, if lights are low
If TV’s off, if cars go slow
We’ll do without, so cut the juice!
There’s no excuse, to cook our goose!!
Well we won’t fuss, tho we just heard
We missed our bus, to Harrisburg!
Now we’re not scared, to breathe the air
Cause we signed up, for Medicare!!
The Pentagon is full of nuts!
They claim that they, protect our butts
But bomb research, has atomic waste
Ten times more, than reactors make!!
We can’t buy life, when poisons spread
Our money can’t, buy back the dead
We’re born to live, with Mother Earth
We should respect how much she’s worth!!
