Chemical Caroling

Get in the holiday spirit with these Christmas carols written by the Bucket Brigade!

It’s A Flare! (Let It Snow)
Oh the fumes outside are frightful,
And the sky looks awfully spiteful,
And we really can’t help but stare,
It’s A Flare! It’s A Flare! It’s A Flare!

It doesn’t show signs of stopping,
And I’ve bought some Advil for popping,
Through the window comes a glare,
It’s A Flare! It’s A Flare! It’s A Flare!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I’ll hate going out in this blaze!
But if you’ll really hold me tight,
I’ll have a chance through the haze.

How long will we be waiting,
For black smoke to finally be fading,
The DEQ says they don’t care,
Let it Flare! Let it Flare! Let it Flare

Jingle Bells
Jingle bells, Exxon smells, Motiva laid an egg
BPs fined, They should do time,
With a shackle on their leg (repeat)

We dance, we knock on doors.
We laugh right in the face
Of Big Oil that wants
To spoil our pretty place

They take our oil and leave
Laughing all the way
Take them on! Oil spills be gone!
Our sleighing song tonight, oh

Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
Benzene burning on the open flare.
Sulfides stinking in your nose.
Exxon and Shell really don’t care
In Louisiana what they say goes

You know, DEQ is on its way
They tell us that every single day.
But every mother’s kid is gonna say
Will we ever have a safe place to stay?

And so they’re offering this simple phrase
Hold your breath, close your eyes, shelter in place.
We all live in fear all the time, everywhere
Flare-y Christmas to you.
