I’d like to close with a song of great social and political import. It goes like this ...

 

“Green Subaru”

 (to the tune of “Mercedes Benz” by Janis Joplin)

 

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a green Subaru?
My friends all drive Outbacks that smell like the zoo
Wore clogs my whole lifetime, instead of real shoes
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a green Subaru?

 

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me some fair trade coffee?
Shade-grown and organic, certified carbon-free,
And join my nonprofit, I’ll make you VP ...
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me some fair trade coffee?

 

Oh Lord won’t you buy me a yoga retreat?
At an ashram in Thailand would make it complete
I promise to compost and stop eating meat
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a yoga retreat?

 

Everybody …

 

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a green Subaru?
My friends all drive Outbacks that smell like the zoo
Wore clogs my whole lifetime, instead of real shoes
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a green Subaru?
