I Want Climate Justice For You
(Cover/Parody of All I Want For Christmas Is You)

I don’t want those high emissions
There is just one thing I need
Zero fossil fuel combustion
Just transition at great speed
I just want the world to know
Fossil free’s the way to go
Make my wish come true oh
I want climate justice for you

I don’t want colonialism
Let the indigenous lead
Global climate reparations
End to white supremacy
Overthrow the patriarchy
And the gender binary
Yes, that’s part of climate justice
Practically and ethically

I just want the world to know
Fossil free’s the way to go
Make my wish come true
I want climate justice for you

I won’t stop until we get it
Climate justice for us all
Strike and march and get arrested
Bring the system to a halt

I won’t let some oiligarchs
And their purchased politicians
Disrupt our climate for profit
Thanks to bought and rigged elections

Cause I want to do what’s right
For the youth and all of life
What more can I do
Oh, baby I want climate justice for you

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
Yet the sound of children’s
Crying fills the air

And everyone is singing
I think my ears are ringing
Voices raised like thunder
Demanding what we need
Won’t you bring climate justice to me quickly

I don’t need those high emissions
This is all I’m asking for
I just want to see my baby
Live in a world worth living for

I just want the world to know
Fossil free’s the way to go
Make my wish come true
Baby, I want climate justice for you

I want climate justice for you, baby
