Footprints in the Air

Posted on 21 Dec 2009

Here’s a new song with a different angle on the Carbon Footprint.. Since writing it I’ve guilted myself into not reboiling the kettle as much which is a success in itself. It’s a little longer and Jammier than most of my songs.  It was inspired by some comedians I saw at the Cool Earth as part of the Festival of World Cultures this year.

Footprints in the Air

I’ve got a footprint

You can’t see it in my I walk

I’ve got a footprint

You can’t see it when I run

I’ve got a footprint

You can’t see it in the snow

I’ve got a footprint

You can’t see it in the sand

I press my foot down

When the lights are on all day

I press my foot down

When the toast has burnt away

I press my foot down

When my life is on standby

I press my foot down

When I boil 3 or 4 times

(before I make my tea)

You can see

You can see

But where?

They’re microscopic

We leave our footprints in the air x2

I’ve got a footprint x3

Can’t you see my footprints

When I carry in the coal

Can’t you see my footprints

When I’m racin’ down the road

Can’t you see his footprints

When he books his Ryanair

Can’t you see her footprints

When she’s dryin her hair

You can see

You can see

But where?

They’re microscopic

We leave our footprints in the air. X2

I’ve got a footprint

You can’t see it when I walk

You can’t see it when I run

You can’t see it in the snow

You can’t even see it in the sand

Ch

You can see

You can see

But where?

They’re microscopic

We leave our footprints in the air. X2

Ice in the Poles

Canary in the Coals
