Singing Salt Water Blues
Salty waters on the West Coast, and all about in the Gulf of Mexico,
Off the tip of Florida's sands, and off the East Coast, don't you know.
Water's all about, but not a drop to drink, cause no one cares enough,
poison's in the kitchen sink.
There's so many strange chemicals and all are added to the long list,
It's poured quietly into the aquifer, and just how could this be missed?
Water, precious water, it flows, so cool and oh, how so very clear,
To do without, we'd all shout, certainly, is way too dear.
Why can't more folks, the big companies, desalinate the ocean's brew,
Making a safer tomorrow, for our kids, and for me and you?
Putting down all the confusion, and in using the cold fusion,
in more things that we all may do?
Heating up the power plants, and just using the naturally flowing gas,
Quit using so much petroleum, black coal, all can't surely last?
Electricity is one resource, depending on the others to be used,
The sun and wind are limited, to keep all totally confused.
Water is provided, by the waves of the seas, all around this earth,
To ignore its greatest potentials right now, imperils all of birth.
The few, the far, and the in-between, limited, those who try,
If we wait and do act too late, we surely all may die.
Water, cool, cool water, and not a drop to drink!
