about

(music: Traditional, lyrics: Nic Balthazar and Stef Kamil Carlens, 2012. Used with Permission. Arranged by Diana Porter 2015.)

In September 2012, 380,000 Belgians came into the streets singing their demand for strong climate legislation. A video clip uniting all the voices was used to convince European leaders to sign on to UN agreements. Set to the melody of the anti-facist resistance anthem “Bella Ciao,” the text calls us to wake up, build a better future and start right now! 

lyrics

Sing for the Climate (Do It Now!)
Music: Traditional, Lyrics: Nic Balthazar and Stef Kamil Carlens, 2012. Used with Permission. Arranged by Diana Porter 2015.)

1.We need to wake up
We need to wise up
We need to open our eyes
And do it now now now
We need to build a better future
And we need to start right now

2. We’re on a planet
That has a problem
We’ve got to solve it, get involved
And do it now now now
We need to build a better future
And we need to start right now

3. Make it greener
Make it cleaner
Make it last, make it fast
and do it now now now
We need to build a better future
And we need to start right now

4. No point in waiting
Or hesitating
We must get wise, take no more lies
And do it now now now
We need to build a better future
And we need to start right no
