IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU


CHORUS:
–                       G                                  D
It aint about Bambi, and it ain’t about trees;
–                        D7                                G     G7
It ain’t about butterflies, it ain’t about bees;
–                      C       C#dim6                          G         E7
It ain’t about saying prayers, it ain’t about splitting hairs,
–                              A7        D7                                   G         D
IT AIN’T ABOUT POLAR BEARS, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU.

Talkin’ ‘bout your family, ain’t no jive.
The 21st century, are they gonna survive  ?
Ain’t talking ‘bout if or when, ain’t talking ‘bout who;
Only talking ‘bout here and now, and you-know-who.

The thing about science, it isn’t red or blue;
But if you like it or not, it’s usually true.
Doesn’t matter how you spin or weave it,
Doesn’t matter whether you believe it.
IT AIN’T ABOUT POLAR BEARS, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU.

CHORUS

So get on board, it’s the best thing to do.
Won’t you knock on that door, and come on through?
Make no mistake, it ain’t the world  that’s gonna break.
IT AIN’T ABOUT POLAR BEARS, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU.

What’s it about? When we damage our climate, we are hurting ourselves. It’s not just about polar bears or far away places. It is ourselves and our children right here.

Fortunately, we can do something about this. By acting decisively to address climate change, we will create a far safer, healthier, cleaner and more enjoyable life for everyone. Imagine driving a car that doesn’t burn gasoline or produce exhaust fumes; better-tasting food that didn’t come from a factory farm; clean, walkable cities with convenient and comfortable public transit, and low energy bills.

The choice is ours to make. The climate chaos we are currently headed toward is about you and your family. It’s about life as we know it. Facing the facts is not just good sense for climate – it’s essential for good business, better jobs, better health and a better future for us all. Get on board! It’s all about you.
