Oxygen 21, Enda Reilly I like air’s ingredients just the way they are. I like air’s ingredients just the way they are. Oxygen 21 Oxygen 21 Nitrogen 78 CO2 trace gases Great! Inhale, exhale, Inhale, exhale, I love to breathe, I thank the trees, Please don’t cut them all down. Burn the wood, Burn the coal Yeah we burn the gas We burn the oil, Nuclear could be a saviour, Or turn snails’ shells triangular. But what about windmills or the sun’s rays What about people peddling all day Yeah what about windmills or the sun’s rays What about people peddling all day In gyms around the world In gyms around the world In gyms around the world In gyms all around the world Oxygen (oxygen) Let’s keep it at 21 (21) Oxygen (oxygen) 21 (21) Nitrogen 78 CO2 we must abate. Inhale (inhale), Exhale (exhale) Inhale (inhale), Exhale (exhale) I love to breathe, I thank the trees, So please don’t cut them all down.

Chewin the Cud (free) 01:56
Chewin the Cud, Enda Reilly 2009 I have 4 Wellys to walk in the muck I have 4 bellys to digest my grub And you will find me lazily stood Or languidly lying Chewing the Cud Chewing the Cud x 7 Making the Milk I don’t eat jellies for teeth they’re no good I don’t watch telly The news aint that good But you will find me lazily stood Or languidly lying Chewing the Cud Chewing the Cud x 7 Making the Milk If I was bright purple You’d all stand and stare But I’m black and white So nobody cares And you will find me Lazily stood Or languidly lying Chewing the Cud Chewing the Cud x 7 Making the Methane x2 I’m making the milk

Ch In the Sun hydrogen comes together It burns so bright in the sky Heats the planet It Makes the wind blow which Makes the flora grow Which gives us oxygen Isn’t that amazing? Some of this energy gets stored away In peat and coal and gas and oil that we burn every day We burned and burn the fuel We thought that it was cool But now we know it’s not cause The Earth has got too hot The Earth has got too hot Chorus Isn’t that Amazing Isn’t that Amazing Isn’t that Amazing Now we need to find A different kind of energy That doesn’t hurt the planet And won’t cost too much money Like the wind that blows Or the flora that grows Or maybe hydrogen or the Sun that keeps on blazing Wouldn’t that be amazing Chorus So let’s put up a good fight Keep Carbon in our sights And maybe one fine day We will find a way

Ocsaigin 21 Is maith liom comhábhar aer dirach mar atá Is maith liom comhábhar aer dirach mar atá Ocsaigin 21 Ocsaigin 21 Nitrigin 78 CO2 is gásanna beaga ionanálaigh, easanálaigh, ionanálaigh, easanálaigh, Is breá liom análú, Leis na crainnte narbh fhiú, Ná leag síos go léir iad. Tá an adhmaid á dhó, Is an gual á dhó Is an peitreal sa charr Is an ola á dhó Is fuinneamh núicléach! D'fheadfadh sé bheith mar éacht Nó ' sceall seilide a thriantánú Cad faoin muileann gaoithe nó gathanna gréine Cad faoi daoine ag rothlú le chéile Cad faoin muileann gaoithe nó gathanna gréine Cad faoi daoine ag rothlú le chéile I spórtlann timpeall an domhain I spórtlann timpeall an domhain I spórtlann timpeall an domhain I spórtlann timpeall an domhain Ocsaigin 21 Ocsaigin Coimead é ag 21 Nitrigin 78 CO2 caitheamar a laghdú (náidiú) ionanálaigh, easanálaigh, ionanálaigh, easanálaigh, Is breá liom análú, Leis na crainnte narbh fhiú, Ná leag síos go léir iad. Ná leag síos go léir iad.Ná leag síos go léir iad.Ná leag síos go léir iad.Ná leag síos go léir iad.Ná leag síos go léir iad. Cad faoin muileann gaoithe nó gathanna gréine Cad faoi daoine ag rothlú le chéile Cad faoin muileann gaoithe nó gathanna gréine Cad faoi daoine ag rothlú le chéile I spórtlann timpeall an domhain I spórtlann timpeall an domhain I spórtlann timpeall an domhain I spórtlann timpeall an domhain

Molly Sells Mussels No More Enda Reilly 2015 after tweet from @Lemonsea regarding ocean acidification "In Dublin's Fair city where the girls are so pretty I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone As she wheels her wheel barrow Through the streets broad and narrow Crying Cockles and Mussels Alive Alive O......" – Ch Fade Will you stay placid as the sea turns to acid And the sea shells are no more The tide is turning the sea is fizzing And Molly sells mussels no more Maybe you don't know what's going on, I’ll try to explain it to you You may have heard we've been emitting far too much CO2 Well it goes in the air but just like cola It goes in the water too This turns the oceans more acidic And makes seashells shells turn to goo So, Will you stay placid as the sea turns to acid And the sea shells are no more? The tide is turning the sea is fizzing And Molly sells mussels no more The Sydney Morning Herald tells me Krill are being killed by that same CO2 This affects fish, whales, seals, penguins and birds Because Krill is the most basic food And will you stay placid as the sea turns to acid And the sea shells are no more? The tide is turning the sea is fizzing And Molly sells mussels no more And the temperature is rising as well, Which is causing the oceans to swell Soon they will rise upon you Then what will we do? Will we be happy when the sea turns to jelly From the surface down to the seafloor The tide is turning the, sea is fizzing And Molly sells mussels no more And will you stay placid as the sea turns to acid And the sea shells are no more The tide is turning the sea is fizzing And Molly sells mussels no more Molly sells mussels no more Soon she'll sell no sea shells I'm sure
