Oh, global warming's in the news,
it's the hottest subject yet,
The cause of all our earthly blues,
it's the world's greatest threat;
I don't know much about it,
but it's handy all the same,
To have a cause that is legit,
on which to lay the blame.

Oh, I met a sailor in the town,
said icebergs aren't forming,
And the Arctic soon will surely drown,
because of global warming;
Well, I'll be damned if that is so,
with the recent gales and storming,
But hurricanes are caused to blow,
they say by global warming.

Although there's global warming,
it's good for Come By Chance,
The crowds will there be swarming
and not the south of France;
Thank God for global warming,
the heat is on the way,
The yachts will soon be calling
to St John's not San Tropez.

Oh, the sea is rising every year,
the globe it is transforming,
The end o' the world is very near
because of global warming;
But there's a cure for this great bane
Kyoto be conforming,
The Japanese will ease our pain
and slow down global warming.

Although there's global warming,
it's good for Come By Chance,
The crowds will there be swarming
and not the south of France;
Thank God for global warming,
the heat is on the way,
The yachts will soon be calling
to St John's not San Tropez.

Oh, the government is set to fall
so now it is reforming,
To get itself back on the ball
and take on global warming;
Oh, heated words it will amass
in the study group it's forming,
And generate a lotta gas
to further global warming.

Although there's global warming,
it's good for Come By Chance,
The crowds will there be swarming
and not the south of France;
Thank God for global warming,
the heat is on the way,
The yachts will soon be calling
to St John's not San Tropez.

Now dump the car and sink the boat
if they're not performing,
Put out a fire and wear a coat
and stop the global warming;
I'm mighty sure it's all a crock
so let me be informing,
If you were living on The Rock
you'd welcome global warming.

Although there's global warming,
it's good for Come By Chance,
The crowds will there be swarming
and not the south of France;
Thank God for global warming,
the heat is on the way,
The yachts will soon be calling
to St John's not San Tropez.

Although there's global warming,
it's good for Come By Chance,
The crowds will there be swarming
and not the south of France;
Thank God for global warming,
the heat is on the way,
The yachts will soon be calling
to St John's not San Tropez.

Spoken:
Norman, will you tell Richard there
to turn off the fan,
David, there's a power,
it's fierce global warming here, you know;
I think I'm gonna find meself
a green suit for Paddy's Day,
I can wear it all year round,
you know... Oh, yes.

Don't sell your snow shovel though,
For it's one small step for man, you know,
And a large giant carbon footprint for mankind,
Well, you know what I mean, you do...
Good point.

Come along, folks,
and global warm yourselves up. Wow!
