Melanie Safka – Carbon Monoxide

Live from the Florida State Theatre, ’91, early in the 3-hour show.

CARBON MONOXIDE (FLORIDA SONG)
Written by Melanie Safka

Carbon monoxide is spilling from cars
It blocks out the sun, it blocks out the stars
Heating the atmosphere so scientist say
And melting the ice caps away

And as the ice melts it is not surprising
The oceans are ever so steadily rising
Steadily rising though high tide and low
And Florida will be first to go

I say goodbye Miami, goodbye Lauderdale
Pass me a bucket, fetch me a pail
The old folks in the condos are up to there knees
With the wind and the salt and the sea

There’ll be no need to worry about air pollution
When your up to your neck in a saline solution
Oh the tide she comes in and she lingers about
But the tide she don’t want to go out

So I say, goodbye Miami, goodbye Sarasota
The Gulf Coast now reaches Pierre, North Dakota
The tops of the toll booths are all that you see
As we sail down the causeway for free

I say goodbye Miami, goodbye Lauderdale
Pass me a bucket, fetch me a pail
The old folks in the condos are up to there knees
With the wind and the salt and the sea
