10. The Holly and the Ivy

Tune: The Holly & The Ivy

The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown
Of all trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown

O, the rising of the su-n
The running of the deer
The playing of the merry music
Sweet singing in the choir

The holly bears a blossom
As white as polar snow
And we must protect the ice caps
Any melting must be slow


The holly bears a berry
As red as raging fire
And we must protect rain forest…
Carbon levels can’t rise higher


The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any pain
And we must reduce emissions
Or we’ll see more acid rain


The holly bears a ba-rk
Bit-ter as any gall
And we must protect diversity
For the world to feed us all
