I spoke last night to this clever guy
And said, "Tell me your solution,
How are we to save, the world
And cut down air pollution?"
He said, "My friend, I understand
And I will answer true,
There are several very simple things
That even you can do.
Don't use coal if you have gas,
There's far more carbon in it,
And all that stuff when it is burnt
It's ruining the climate!
Now all the heat we use at home
Can be reduced with care,
So climb up in your loft tonight
And put some Rockwool there!
Instead of going down the Pub
Put plastic strip around your door,
“to cut down Ventilation!”
“Have you thought about your walls
And all the heat they're losing.
Ring the man with the Rockwool van
And get some insulation."
"I thought about it friend," I said,
"But my pockets ain't lined with gold,
I'd rather keep the cash at home
And put up with the cold.
I can't afford to buy that stuff,
Food and beer is quite enough
You'll have to find some other ways
To show me insulation pays."
He shook his head for a while;
Then ear to ear began to smile,
"I had my own home done, my friend
It weren't much gold I had to spend.
In fact it's been now, just a year
Since I've been drinking half priced beer,
I've saved the other half you see
That's what Rockwool's done for me."
