I'm out here a hundred miles from my home,
Walking a track Big Oil has gone down,
I'm seeing a new world the Industry's backing,
In a fold of this valley they've started... fracking.

There's derricks and storage tanks, pipework galore:
A festering sore on the valley floor.
But we need energy and other fuel's lacking,
So the Government says we've got to get... fracking.

There's gas to be found in the Sussex shales,
In Dorset, the Peaks and the Yorkshire Dales.
Do we really need heather or gorse or bracken?
Bulldoze it under. Make space for... fracking.

"Ok, there's a problem with tremors and quakes,
But getting the energy's worth a few shakes!"
So say the oil men, through lips that are smacking
As they envisage the cash they'll be making from... fracking.

As if this world ain't messes up enough
We gotta go and frack it all up.

But I went to a meeting of 'No Fracking' schemers
And they all drove up in Audis and Beemers.
Unless they change life-style, what's the good of them yacking?
They haven't realised they really need... fracking.

Are you ready for your house to be cool?
Or the size of your car to be fixed by a rule?
Till we face this dilemma there's no point attacking.
We're all to blame. We all need …fracking.
