Well we've all heard times about Little Johnny,
Get in trouble at school, filthy little mouth,
He called a teacher a tool, during his honour technology
During science, the teacher he respected,
Wrote down his defiance with a subject unexpected,
Of what would be, when massive chunks of ice fall in the sea
And Johnny comes in from school and says,
Mum, there's a star on fire in the sky,
And it scares me I don't know why,
Little Johnny's got tears in his eyes and his mum says,
Calm down son, we don't want anymore of them floods in here,
Remember last year when we nearly lost the house,
And the mouse that ran around the kitchen drowned
So look here now, Little Johnny's on a mission,
Down to Parliament, by his own admission,
It's an argument he expects and he's gonna let his anger flow
So Johnny starts a talk for the MPs and the speaker,
'Bout his worries for the Earth but they're lost in the ether,
Johnny ain't daft so he leaves and he wipes up the thermostat
He locks them inside, they cannot be breathing,
Now Little Johnny's outside, the MPs are on fire,
So Johnny gets his dad along with the rest of the fire brigade
Aimed for the windows as Little Johnny did a cry,
The world flooded in and all the faders shut an eye,
And none of them were sailors,
And were scared of chopping seas and catastrophe
'Cause there's a star on fire in the sky,
And it scares me I don't know why,
Little Johnny's got tears in his eyes and his mum says,
Calm down son, we don't want anymore of them floods in here,
Remember last year when we nearly lost the house,
And the mouse that ran around the kitchen drowned
So off went the water and down came the heat,
All the way down to an ice age degree,
And Johnny shouted out, 'I'll turn the key if you can all agree'
So in comes Johnny, not so little now,
Back at my school, our ... says how,
The teacher's a lesson and prior to concession for us all to see
'Cause there's a star on fire in the sky,
And it scares me I don't know why,
But Little Johnny's got tears in his eyes and his mum says,
Calm down son, we don't want anymore of them floods in here,
Remember last year when we nearly lost the house,
And the mouse that ran around the kitchen drowned
