Power Plant Reggae


Testo trovato su Broadside Magazine n.141 del primo semestre 1979.
You can make steam in a boiler,
Or from the light of the sun,
But making steam in a nuclear plant
Is like shooting a fly with a gun.
Shooting a fly with a gun,
And the gun cost a billion or two.
If the gun gets hot
And the shooter gets shot,
The whole world's down the flue.

You can make steam in a boiler
So the generator will run,
But making power in a nuclear plant
Is like killing a flea with a gun.
Killing a flea with a gun,
And the gun shoots more ways than one;
If the gun gives out
And the shooter gets shot,
The whole damn world is done.

You can make steam in a boiler
Or on the gas stove at home,
But making steam in a nuclear plant
Is like killing a gnat with a bomb.
Killing a gnat with a bomb,
And the bomb costs a million to shoot,
If the bomb gets a crack
You can't send it back,
There'll be nobody left to do it.

You can make steam in a boiler,
Or from the light of the sun,
But making steam in a nuclear plant
Is like shooting a fly with a gun.
Shooting a fly with a gun,
And the gun costs a billion or two.
If the gun gets hot
And the shooter gets shot,
The whole world's down the flue.
