GLOBAL WARMING IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY !


Description:

Donovan, the Scottish Poet Singer releases an impressive 21 Climate Change songs album called E C O – S O N G, as a tribute to Greta Thunberg and the millions of students around the world who call for action by the governments of the world to halt Climate Change. The song titles in the Lyrics below speak for themselves. 

Donovan says…

 

“ Fifty years ago in 1969 I became the  only popular 20th Century songwriter to criticise the UNITED NATIONS in my song RIKI TIKI TAVI.
Fifty years later here in 2019 Greta criticises the UNITED NATIONS.
A half century passes and still no serious co-ordinated Climate Change action by the UNITED NATIONS, only promises far in the future. What future, ask the millions of students around the world ? “

Dr. Donovan Leitch ( Doctor of Letters :  Ecology : University of Hertfordshire , 2003 )

 

Back in 1969 the 23 year old Donovan sings directly to humanity , and especially youth …

RIKI TIKI TAVI

 

’ You better get into what you gotta get into
And you better get into it now no slacking please
For the United Nations ain’t really united
And the organisations ain’t really organised

 

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Won’t be come’ around to kill your snakes no more my love
The Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone 

 

When I was a young man I was led to believe
there were organisations to kill my snakes for me
I.E. The Church , I.E. The Government , I.E. School
When I got a little bit older I learned I had to kill ‘em myself
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone

 

Riki Tiki Tavi: Donovan Music / Peer Music

 

Listen to RIKI TAKI TAVI track (09) below… one of the 21 songs on E C O – S O N G. 

 

Following his 1969 UN Protest Song, Donovan continued to write 20 more songs to raise awareness of Climate Change and what he feels is the fast approaching end of Sustainable  Life on Earth. These 21 songs are now E C O – S O N G.  

 

Donovan has been a Culture Hero Songwriter of all the 1960’s Youth Movements: Civil Rights, Ban The Bomb and TM Meditation for Schools. Yet Donovan saw in 1965 that there was a far more urgent movement needing support , back then called The Green Movement , what we now call Climate Change. In the 1960’s Donovan met with Sir Peter Scott of The World Wild Life Fund and in 1970’s performed for Friends of The Earth. 

 

Donovan , his wife Linda and family , plan a concert in Greta’s own home town Stockholm to present a World Wide Podcast Climate Change Appeal. Other European cities may be added. Watch here for the dates. During the Stockholm Concert week , ‘Meet & Greet‘ Donovan and his family at the concert and get a dedicated signed… E C O – S O N G / BOOK and E C O – S O N G / CD.


See Video of another E C O – S O N G track DIGGIN’ THE FUTURE NOW here.

(The word ‘Diggin‘ is Jazz Slang meaning… ‘Fully Understand‘)

(2010)

Just give me some of your love babe
Just give me some of your love

Can you see the ice-cap melt?
Can you see the ice-cap melt?
Can you see the ice-cap melt?

Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now

Can you see the ocean rise?
Can you see the ocean rise?
Can you see the ocean rise?

Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now

This is the BBC
The polar ice-cap is indeed melting
And in an unprecedented move
The Security Council of the United Nations
Has declared global warming
A crime against humanity

Hello, Houston, we’re over South America now
Wow! We can see the Amazon forest burning

Can you see the forest burn?
Can you see the forest burn?
Can you see the forest burn?

Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now
Diggin’ the future now

Do you wanna change it now?
Do you wanna change it now?
Do you wanna change it now?

Just give me some of your love

Slow Down World
(1976)

Slow Down World
Major problem ahead
You’ve bin on the go
For a long long time I know
Take a rest from the race why chase it

Slow Down World
Take a tip from old times
You’ve seen how greed
Consumes you with its need
Take a rest from the race why chase it

Happy is the man
Who rests when he can
Let old man time’s sand
Slip through his hand
And happy is the gal
Who calls peace her pal
If you want to be free
You shall you shall

Slow Down World
Take a break for God’s sake
You just can’t stop your climb
Your money-mad climb up to the top
Don’t you just glance at the chance
Why waste it don’t chase it why waste it

Happy is the man
Who rests when he can
Let Old Man Time’s sand
Slip through his hand
And happy is the gal
Who calls Peace her pal
If you want to be free
You shall you shall

Slow Down World
Slow Down World
Slow Down World
Slow Down World

The Voice Of Protest
(1974)

The human race is sleeping, half of us are weeping
Ignorance is creeping darkening our way
No teacher is teaching no plan is far reaching
The Hawks of Greed are screeching poisoning our day

As ’round and ’round and ’round we go
The seeds of misery we sow
‘Round and ’round and down we go
Your leader is lost and he don’t know

Brother, sister aching fear and mistrust making
Giving nought all taking, emptying the heart
The pain of not giving, pretending we’re living
No one ever forgiving the drama of the dead

As ’round and ’round and ’round we go
The seeds of misery we sow
‘Round and ’round and down we go
You may well ask which way to go
Your leader is lost and he don’t know

Time he is our Master more quantity and faster
Directions to disaster forgetting all we’ve learned
The children are searching drug taking and churching
While the old Earth Ship she’s lurching all on her starry way

As ’round and ’round and ’round we go
The seeds of misery we sow
‘Round and ’round and down we go
You may well ask which way to go
Your leader is lost and he don’t know

No Hunger
(1976)

No Hunger no thirst
No disease no pain
No poverty or loss
No loneliness again

No tragedy no grief
No sorrow relief
No egoist in power
No poisoning the flower

Boys and girls in every land
Go hungry even now in long lines they stand
Food is burnt to balance banks
Taxes go to purchase tanks
Sorrow for so many joy for few
They need you what can you do

No Hunger no thirst
No disease no pain
No poverty or loss
No loneliness again

No Hunger

5
The Great Song Of The Sky
(1974)

Let us try to keep in rhythm with the rolling of our hills
For I’m sure it is the remedy to clear up all our ills
And we’ll seal a bond of family, communion of wills
As we’re arc-ing on our way Infinity
As we’re arc-ing on our way Infinity

Let us try to keep in harmony with every deed we do
For we are you know, one and the same let I reveal to you
There’s a silent subtle secret between every entity
As we’re arc-ing on our way Infinity

Sing the great song of the sky friend with me oh yeah
Sing the great song of the sky friend with me oh yeah
Sing the great song of the sky friend with me oh yeah
Sing the great song of the sky friend with me

Let us try to keep in step with the changing of our times
And we’ll let a good clean wind blow through the cobwebs in our minds
And embrace the Age of Atoms using wisely all we find
As we’re arc’ing on our way Infinity

Sing the great song of the sky friend with me oh yeah
Sing the great song of the sky friend with me oh yeah
Sing the great song of the sky friend with me oh yeah
Sing the great song of the sky friend with me

Yellow Star
(1973)

There have been bad thing done
There have been some good one
And many people died
And many nations cried
And many babies came
As many died again
Yet always Man prevailed
Yeah though the Devil wailed

You know we’re way out there
In some Galaxy hair
With all this space around
We fight to keep our share
With all our cruelty
And all our jealousy
We find it hard to give
To just live and let live
To live and let live

It’s all in the Dance of Life my friend
It’s all in the Song that never ends
It’s all in the Dance of Life my friend
Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star

We think that we’re so big
The truth we never never twig
And if some Quasar gonna blow
I guess we’d never never know
And long before that day
When we are burned away
Let us take time to smile
And swing a little while
Just a little while

There have been many, many words
And just as many many turds
It’s all a kind of dream
And not quite what it seem
But when the talking’s done
This Life of Death we’re gonna shun
And turn our hearts to Him
Hailé Sélassié
Whose Light will never never dim

Whoa oh oh
It’s all in the Dance of Life my friend
It’s all in the Song that never ends
It’s all in the Dance of Life my friends
Following that Yellow Star

Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star
Following that Yellow Star

Cryin’ Shame
(1976)

Food in abundance beggars and banks
God in His Heaven and His priests in tanks
Gold in the misery sewer in the mind
Greed and corruption of every kind

They all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn your head look away again
They all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn your head look away again
They all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn their heads look away again

Fools in the Parliament pollution in the stream
T.V. Poverty and the big bad dream
Sex in the Cinema fear in the school
Censorship committees they rule we’re cool

But they all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn your heads look away again
Don’t they all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn your heads look away again

Don’t they all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn their heads look away again
They all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn your heads look away again

Composure in the little pill courage in the beer
Mummy and Daddy and the life of fear
Human relationships cast away
I hope we get together one of these days

And they all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn their heads look away again
Don’t they all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn their heads look away again

They all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn their heads look away again
They all know it’s a cryin’ shame
To turn their heads look away again
They all know it’s a cryin’ shame

Riki Tiki Tavi
(1970)

Better get into what you gotta get into
Better get into it now no slacking please
United Nations ain’t really united
And the organisations ain’t really organised

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Won’t be coming around for to kill your snakes no more my love
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone

Everybody who read the Jungle Book knows that Riki Tiki Tavi’s a mongoose who kills snakes
When I was a young man I was led to believe there were organisations to kill my snakes for me
I.E. The Church I.E. The Government I.E. School
But when I got a little older I learned I had to kill ‘em myself

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Won’t be coming‘ around for to kill your snakes no more my love
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone

People walkin‘ around they don’t know what they’re doing
They bin lost so long they don’t know what they’re looking for
Well I know what I’m a looking for but I just can’t find it
I guess I gotta look inside of myself some more

oh oh oh inside of myself some more come on now
oh oh oh inside of myself some more

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose has gone

I saw you today on a number twelve bus

How Silly
(1974)

How Silly The Politician looks
Wearing his public smile
Trying to hide his incapacity
When it’s sticking out a mile
With the paper mache wife
And the paper trashy life
If he sees himself as the man for the job
His mirror’s telling lies

How Silly the Priest or Parson looks
Striking a holy pose
Trying to hide their nakedness
With medieval clothes
They’re holding a golden key
But what it looks like to me
Is they’re holding all that Real Estate
That’s your neighbourhood poverty

These are just a few of the things
I bin noticin’
Politician Priest & Parson
If you really feel like helping’

Open up your heart yeah that’s the helping’ part
Open up your heart that at least’s a start

How Silly The Queen of England looks
Sipping Her Royal-Tea
The essence of non-commital-ness
In the Grand Democracy
It’s the Hanoverian Strain
Erin’s Isle is not the same
For the Poet’s Rhyme she give us wine
We hope for better things from Charles

These are just a few of the things I bin noticin‘
Your Royal Majesty Dear Madam
If you really feel like helpin‘

Open up your heart that’s the helping’ part
Let your Christmas message start:

“Open up your hearts“

How Silly The Politician looks
Wearing his public smile
How Silly the Priest or Parson looks
Striking a holy pose
How Silly the Queen of England looks
HOW SILLY – HOW SILLY – HOW SILLY

11
We Are One
(1980)

Fare thee well ye tribes of olden Families of Man
Long before the Age of Iron proudly you did stand
Fare thee well ye Wild Primitive in your Stoney Ring
Long before the Age of Letters proudly you did sing

We are all together we are one
The wandering Tribe of Man around the Sun
And though we bow to Mechanical Gods
We are all together cowering like dogs

Fare thee well great forest country
Horned Stag and Boar
Fare thee well Pure Crystal Fountain
Virgin clear no more

Sad no more the flowing wind
Shall lift your tangled hair
Sad the geese are winging homeward
Through the poisoned air

We are all together we are one
The wandering Tribe of Man around the Sun
And though we bow to Mechanical Gods
We are all together cowering like dogs

We are all together we are one
The wandering Tribe of Man around the Sun
And though we bow to mechanical gods
We are all together cowering like dogs

12
The Crunch
(1970)

Now we have come to The Crunch fellow man
All that we own is all that we are
Factories and cities depressing and grey
Guaranteed free from all that’s light and gay
Light and gay
All thats light and gay
Light and gay

Polluting the water, we’re required to drink
Polluting the air we’re required to breathe
Stop cries the protest group and the government sends police
They own the bloody factories would you believe
You believe you believe
You believe

Complete and utter disregard for what is wild and free
He looks on in his ignorance the common man he sees
Blames the weather toasts the cheese on his knees
On his knees on his knees

We’re traveling open up your eyes
We may hide the truth we cannot hide the lies
Pollution is The Plague Middle Ages again
And all the soaps and toothpaste won’t clean us then
Clean us then Clean us then
Clean us then Clean us then

We’re traveling through space on this Orb we call Earth
All in perfect harmony with millions of stars
All of this fighting about who gets to sit where
When it doesn’t really matter it’s the same ride there
The same ride there the same ride there
Same ride there

Complete and utter disregard for what is wild and free
He looks on in his ignorance the common man he sees
Blames the weather toasts the cheese on his knees
On his knees on his his knees

All that we own is all that we are?
Factories and cities depressing and grey
Guaranteed free from all that’s light and gay
Light and gay light and gay
All thats light and gay light and gay
(unresolved end… like the UN on Climate Change)

13
Brave New World
(1977)

There’s a Brave New World awaiting on you kids out there
With a brand new way of getting through your day there
Don’t you ever be mistaken about whose looking out for you
Ego is easily shaken when you find that it’s only you

In this Brave New World
Brave New World
Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World

There’s a disappointment waiting on you fools out there
If you entertain the notion that society cares
In a world of nuclear fear presumably seeking peace
Our lives are drawn together by the sheer necessity

Of this Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World

They want a sad moronic embryonic factory
Test tube Brother test tube Sister it’ll never be
Because the Light is slowly spreading the truth begins to dawn
Aquarius Ascending – Ignorance Begone

From this Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World
It’s a Brave New World

14
Only To Be Expected
(1980)

All time low the weatherman said
I don’t need him to tell me that I know
Belt of heavy pressure building
And over all the earth I feel it grow

It’s only to be expected
When we poison the water when we poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected
When we’re way out of sync with Nature’s Way
We’re only interested if it pay

Boys and girls in every land
Go hungry even now in lines they stand
Food is burnt to balance banks
And taxes go to buy missiles and tanks

It’s only to be expected
When we poison the water when we poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected
When we’re way out of sync with Nature’s Way
We’re only interested if it pay

Only to be expected
When we poison the water and we poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected
When we’re way out of sync with Nature’s Way

Only to be expected
When we poison the water and we poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected

15
Comin’ To You
(1980)

There’s a hole in the Iron Curtain
And the Levis are pouring through
And the yellow kids want their‘ Trani‘
And the black kids’ll want one too

There’s a Riff in a Russian Rocker
There’s a Punk on a Chinese Junk
A common bond in Soccer
Whether you be Commie or Monk

It’s comin’ to you it’s comin’ to you
It’s comin’ it’s comin’ to you
It’s comin’ to you it’s comin’ to you
It’s comin’ it’s comin’ to you

Go to the shelter do not be alarmed
Follow our instructions and you will not be harmed
Take the tablets in the green box in the morning take the blue
Citizens be confident we are fighting for you

It’s coming’ to you it’s comin’ to you
It’s coming’ it’s comin’ to you
It’s coming it’s comin’ to you

It’s coming’ to you it’s coming’ to you

Neutron
(1980)

I was born in the rubble of World War II
Played ball where tall buildings once grew
But today there’s a way to make war pay
A new toy from the boys in the USA

Neutron you’re a Real Estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron Neutron you’re a Real Estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone

You got the boom like the doom Atomica
You got the taste like the waste of Nuclear
And you fly like a Supersonica
You’re a likeable kind of bomb

Neutron you’re a Real Estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron Neutron you’re a Real Estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone

Neutron Neutron you’re a Real Estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone
Neutron, Neutron, you’re a Real Estate bomb
The property stays but the people are gone

You Do Belong (Teenage Suicide)
(1993)

Since Elvis hit the stage
Suicide has been the rage
Of young America
Cutting veins popping pills
Shooting guns won’t kill the ills
Of young America

You you do belong
You you do belong

He took a couple of tabs
And he was feeling fab
Just like he oughta
Then he got quite a buzz
Thought he was Jesus
Out on the water

You you do belong
You, you do belong

Well you know I’m gonna jump
Well you know I’m gonna jump
Don’t come no closer
Let’s just try and work it out
Let’s just try and work it out
I won’t come closer

You you do belong
You you do belong

You I said you do belong
You you do belong
You don’t care I’ll show you
Hold my breath till I’m blue
That’ll teach ya
Well you know I’ll run away
Sell my body for my pay
News’ll reach ya

You you do belong
You you do belong

Well we wanna do well
In exams and excel
In a profession
Why we studying, anyhow
There’s no jobs for us now
It’s an obsession

You I said you do belong (yes you do)
You you do belong

All you desp’rates listening in
Listen close to what I’m saying
You are mistaken
Every doubt every fear
Is a lesson for you dear
Your’e not forsaken

You you do belong
Yo you do belong
You I said you do belong
You I said you do belong
You do belong you do belong

Lord Of The Universe
(1970)

I’m the Lord of the Universe It’s best you don’t mess with me
I’m the Lord of the Universe it’s best you don’t mess with me

When they try working me out

I’m the Lord of the Universe it’s best you don’t mess around with me
I’m the King am the King of the Universe baby It’s best you don’t mess with me

Cause I’ll stomp on you

I can freeze your sea I can burn your tree
I’m everywhere you happen to be

Oh I’m the Lord I’m the Lord of the Universe life force is my name
Yes I’m the Lord, yeah I’m the Lord I’m the Lord of the Universe it’s best you don’t mess with me

You know you don’t mess with me

Ooh ooh yeah I love baby don’t you mess with me?
If you do please don’t mess with me

19
The Blame Game
(2013)

Always finding fault in others all over the town
Never ever seeing what is going down
Thinking their entitled to what they didn’t earn
Owning up is a lesson they don’t wanna learn

They’re playing the blame game
Always the same game
Ain’t it a shame shame
Playing the blame game

They don’t like me they all hate me that’s the way they feel
Gimme something is the one thing they all think is real
You made me so unhappy you must suffer now
Everyone they know can see it but they don’t know how

They’re playing the blame game
Always the same game
Ain’t it a shame shame
Playing the blame game

Up above the moon she bright in the darkest night
Down below their eyes are blind they cant see the light

They’re playing the blame game
Always the same game
Ain’t it a shame shame
Playing the blame game

When a bad thing happens to them they figure why
Its another woman did it or another guy
Never me its always them they did this to me
We all wonder if the truth they will ever see

Playing the blame game
Always the same game
Ain’t it a shame shame
Playing the blame game

20
Save The World
(1995)

Before too long let’s save the world
It’s not too late to save the world
Some may say it’s just a dream
Love is never what it seem

I won’t get over losing you
Forest green and ocean blue
So let’s all see if we can be
Civilised and free

Before too long let’s save the world
It’s not too late to save the world
They may say it’s just a dream
Hate is never what it seem

Whatever your faith may sing
Allah be praised or Christ be king
Jehovah Krishna Chairman Mao
Buddha begin it now

It’s up to you
Save the world
It’s up to you
Save the world

Before too long let’s save the world
It’s not too late to save the world
You can say it’s just a dream
Greed is never what it seem

All the battles lost and won
Beneath the shining moon and sun
We ache to see over the world
The flag of peace unfurled

It’s up to you to save the world
It’s not too late to save the world
I call on every boy and girl
Awaken to the inner world

We are all one beneath the skin
Ignorance is the only sin
Take the knowledge and the power
Be bold this is the hour

It’s up to you to save the world
It’s up to you to save the world
It’s up to you to save the world
It’s up to you to save the world
It’s up to you
Save the world
It’s up to you
Save the world

Don’t pour filth into rivers
Rivers are like the blood in our veins
Don’t pour filth into the air
Air is the best thing that we can breathe

La la la la la la la la la

We’re on a Spaceship
You may not think so
We’re on a Spaceship
And here we go

Don’t pour filth into rivers
Rivers are like the blood in our veins
Don’t pour filth into the air
Air is the best thing that we can breathe

La la la la la la la la la

We’re on a Spaceship
You may not think so
We’re on a Spaceship
And here we go
