Greta

Verse 1

Greta, you stand before us now

Ready to talk, so calm and serene

On our screens, for all to see

Sailed across the oceans

Addressed the United Nations

So many powerful leaders

While some listen with respect

We ask what action will they take?

 

Chorus

It’s time to listen, and it’s time to act

It’ time to face, the brutal facts

We must learn to, embrace the science

And help others, to understand

Your message is bold, crystal clear

Greta you speak the words we need to hear

 

Verse 2

Greta, you want to save the world

You understand what we need to do

Plant more trees and farm our seas

Shift our way of living

Prepare for dramatic changes

The ice is melting faster

Soon there’ll be nowhere to go

We must control the carbon flow

Bridge

Greta you’re humble and sincere

A guiding star for all our young

Let the world sit up and listen

And believe we can work together

 

Chorus

It’s time to listen, and it’s time to act

It’ time to face, the brutal facts

We must learn to, embrace the science

And help others, to understand

Your message is bold, crystal clear

Greta you speak the words we need to hear

Repeat

Your message is bold, crystal clear

Greta you speak the words we need to hear
