Leave the oil in the ground
(Tune: Diggers Song)
Leave the oil in the ground,
sing out now, sing out now,
Leave the oil in the ground,
sing out now.
For a future clean and fair,
full of life for all to share
We can show the world we care,
no more car­bon in the air
Leave the oil in the ground
Leave the gas beneath the sea,
sing out now, sing out now,
Leave the gas beneath the sea,
sing out now,
This is an emer­gency,
limit change to two degrees,
The earth’s our treas­ury,
so leave a hope­ful leg­acy,
Leave the gas beneath the sea

Leave the coal in the seam,
sing out now, sing out now,
Leave the coal in the seam,
sing out now,
Let us turn our planet green,
mak­ing energy that’s clean
Sun and wind and tidal schemes,
Come let’s real­ise our dream
Leave the coal in the seam

You gentle people all
sing out now, sing out now,
You gentle people all sing out now
This planet to main­tain,
prof­it­eer­ing we dis­dain,
Shame­less com­pan­ies we name,
pub­lic own­er­ship we claim,
Leave the oil in the ground
