Song: David Attenborough Says

Been too long since I posted here, sorry 'bout that... you know I turn up on FaceBook and Twitter as well these days, right? Well. I've slipped out of the habit of telling you how the gig went here, but just now I'm at the end of the year's gigs and I'm looking sidelong at the things filling up my diary for next year, many of which look like huge fun.

It's been a little while since I posted a new song lyric here as well, and that I *can* remedy, and hereby do so. Green and quirky, just what I like. Guess what I was watching on iPlayer this evening?


DAVID ATTENBOROUGH SAYS
 
 
David Attenborough says the world is warming
And I rather think he knows what he’s about
He’s been showing me the world most of my lifetime
And he seems to think there’s little room for doubt
He’s a first class grade one national institution
(Though I believe that’s not a term he likes to hear)
David Attenborough says the world is warming
And in half an hour we’ll sit and watch ‘Top Gear’.
 
David Attenborough says the sea is rising
And I tend to think that David knows his stuff
He’s been showing me the world most of my lifetime
And he seems to think there’s evidence enough
In his gentle pleasant unflappable manner
In that breathy voice that no-one else can do
David Attenborough says the sea is rising
Now I’ll just re-boil that kettle for a brew.
 
David Attenborough’s shown us this blue planet
Taken all of us on after-supper treks
Shown us reptiles, fish, amphibians and mammals
And how orchids worms and hummingbirds do sex (not altogether!)
If we’ve paid the least attention to Sir David
When we’ve watched him in our sitting-rooms for, so very long
If David Attenborough says we’ve got a problem
How can we be so convinced he’s got it wrong?
