Permaculture principle 2: Catch and Store energy - make hay while the sun shines ...and don't forget to pass it round!

lyrics

There’s one thing everyone needs
And I am sure that you will all agree that
In the end it comes down to energy

If you’ve got some, put some effort in now
‘cause whatever it is won’t be hanging around
Gotta put it in a bottle and store it any way you can.

Catch and store energy every day, any way that you can with care
Catch and store energy every day, any way that you can while it’s there.

If the sun is shining down its rays
then get outside and make some hay
because you might just only have today to do it

And when there’s more, don’t keep it all yourself
Give some to a friend with room on their shelf
Cos the best way to generate energy is to keep it moving.

Catch and store energy every day, any way that you can for later on
Catch and store energy every day, any way that you can before it’s gone

Well now I’m young but it won’t be long
Before I grow old n this energy will be gone
So I’d better find a way to pass it on

When you’re coming inside at the end of the season,
Preserve all your surplus and save all your seeds and reserve as much as you can for later on

about

Formidable Vegetable Sound System Fremantle, Australia

Experimental ‘ecological edutainment’ based around the principles of permaculture (a neat way to fix the world) mashing together ukulele with some electro-funk-swing, climate-change reggae, post-apocalypso and a decent serving of 'Radish Beets'.
