Be an Eco-friendly Vehicle and I'll ride you to the moon

I think the car companies have done pretty good.
By making cars with something better under the hood.

Just try to imagine what they drove back in nineteen twenty.
I’ll bet you wouldn’t be seen in that today for love nor money.

In our cars we can travel from coast to coast; 
without praying to the father, the son, and the holy ghost.

You know saving our planet shouldn’t be just a one way street
Why don’t we all pipe down, and get off our lazy little seat

Or we could all just preach to the choir like Jimmy Fallon.
Still waiting for the days of one hundred miles to the gallon.

I say put your money where your mouth is;
turn it around on them, and  don’t give them the bizz.


If you’re at home go and sit outside.  
When where you’re going is close; walk it don’t ride.

Think of all the money you’ll get to save and feel healthier too.
When we play our part the planet will keep its riches, and the Earth will thank you.

Yeah, who wouldn’t like a car that got three times the gas mileage, and didn’t pollute.
Instead of complaining about the way things are;  lets all show we really give a hoot.

    great couplet rhyme, Edwin... I enjoyed it. Well done and easily read with a great message. If this hasn't won yet it surely will. It already did with me.

    Aye! So, so much de-programming for a lot of people to attain the desire to sacrifice a bit of sloth and actually move a few muscles lol.
