Nothing To Do With Me

Trees being felled; pandas nearly extinct,
In the north pole, polar bears on the brink.
People are dying: no water to drink,
But it's nothing to do with me.

Poisonous gases pour into the air
Choking our Earth - but what do I care?
Temperatures rising: extreme weather scare,
But it's nothing to do with me.

Too many people, there's nothing to eat,
Bad news for the animals - we all want more meat.
Farmers are desperate, they have to compete
But it's nothing to do with me.

An orangutan baby clings on to its mum,
In the ocean, a shark's life has begun.
An Arctic fox has just had her first cub.
And it's nothing...
Nothing...
Nothing...
It's something to do with me.

The poisonous gases come out of my car,
This food that I'm eating has come from afar,
My lights shine as bright as the evening star,
So it's something to do with me.

But I can make a difference, I can help make it right.
TV off standby and switch off that light.
I won't drive to school, I'll pick up my bike
'Coz it's something to do with me.

I'll buy FSC - the orangutan's alive,
Turn down the heating - the shark has survived,
Get house insulation - the fox cub's alright,
'Coz it's something to do with me.

I can't change the whole world, I can't turn down the Sun,
I can't put right the damage we've already done.
I can't change the lives of everyone,
But...
It's something to do with you.
