Culture corner – Look after your planet

An ominous message is chimed in Chris Missen’s ‘Look after your planet’ – which is played-out in the video.

Townsville’s finest song-smith not only highlights environmental concerns – he suggests that if we are not careful, the earth will turn against us.

Chris is a gifted song-writer who fuses powerful lyrics with an unmistakable country-folk melody.

Thank you Chris for sending us this tune to feature on ‘Culture corner’

Look After Your Planet                                  

You must look after your planet

If you want your planet to look after you.

If you want to win you’ve got to plan it

It’s the only logical thing that you can do.

If you want to stay alive 

Show a bit of drive.

If you want your children’s children to prosper and survive –

Then you must look after your planet

If you want your planet to look after you.

Leave the coal in the ground

Don’t let nobody stuff  around.

Don’t let them turn our forests and oceans a muddy black and brown.

Because you must look after your planet

If you want your planet to look after you.

Leave that plastic on the shelf

You know that you don’t need it

And if it don’t sell then it might disappear.

Money talks the loudest so remember don’t believe in

Anything or everything you hear.

But you must look after your planet

If you want your planet to look after you.               

Everybody knows what we need to do

If you want your planet to look after you

But it’s getting past the point where we’ve just got to make a stand

Before devastation spreads across the land.

Send a message to the man

Ask him if he’s got a plan.

Then tell him so he really and clearly sincerely understands

That you must look after this planet

If you want this planet to look after you.

Yes you must look after this planet

If you want this planet to look after you.

By Chris Missen.
