DANCERS: Abaigh Punton, Amber Rose Morgan, Cat Morris, Katie Walting, Layla-Rose Boyce and Maia West. #EMERGENCY LYRICS: Ladies and gentleman, I’ve got disturbing news Concerning those in charge, the power they misuse They speak with silence, thinking problems disappear Sat on their lazy arses, fingers in their ears. And they’re repeating empty promises of ‘hope’ The future’s in a noose and they provide the rope It’s not a drill, so ring the sirens, make them see The state they’ve left us in has reached emergency! Emergency! Emergency! We don’t need your hope We need your - Urgency. Before we’re choking on the smoke Tell us… is this some crazy joke where the punch-line is a flaming world?! Where you’ve left us in the ashes? Laughing while it crashes And burns. And they might say that we should be at school instead. Studying what’s in store, and our careers ahead But education’s just a way to waste the days If we are simply waiting for the world to set ablaze. And so we stand and march outside of parliament Together for this cause, we set a precedent We are the chorus of the people first in line To face the suffering when nature calls it time. Emergency! Emergency! We don’t need your hope We need your - Urgency. Before we’re choking on the smoke Tell us… is this some messed up joke where the punch-line is a flaming world?! Where you’ve left us in the ashes? Laughing while it crashes And burns. Whose planet?! Our planet! Whose planet?! Our planet! Whose planet?! Our planet! Whose planet?! Our plan to... Show you our intelligence Shock you out of negligence Priorities that don’t make sense If soon there’ll be no future tense. So while we still have time to act While the world is still in tact We call to you to face the facts We’re nature and we’re fighting back! Emergency! Emergency! We don’t need your hope We need your - Urgency. Before we’re choking on the smoke Tell us… is this some **** up joke where the punch-line is a flaming world?! Where you’ve left us in the ashes. Laughing while it crashes And burns. _________________ SHEET MUSIC AND BACKING TRACKS AVAILABLE: https://bit.ly/2BmHiLz Non-commercial use only. _____________ © Copyright Spirit YPC Ltd. ____________ Audition to join #TeamSpirit: https://bit.ly/2A2FwAt KEEP UP WITH SPIRIT YOUNG PERFORMERS COMPANY: Instagram: http://bit.ly/1ZaTHWd Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1PTjKk4 Twitter: http://bit.ly/1IULkMr Website: http://www.spiritypc.co.uk KEEP UP WITH SPIRIT YOUNG DANCE COMPANY: YouTube: http://bit.ly/2zzQtHl Instagram: http://bit.ly/2fNuP7J SPIRIT YPC/YDC MERCHANDISE: http://bit.ly/2hZIHif AUDITION FOR SPIRIT YPC/SPIRIT YDC http://bit.ly/2A6cvRT SIGN UP FOR OUR HOLIDAY INTENSIVES: http://bit.ly/2jhSNif

This is incredible! Well done to everyone for creating this. It's not something many people realise, that we as the heirs of this planet care so much about it. So well done on creating an brilliant song showing this off.

Also you all are making me feel old 😂 I'm not too much older than you all, but have watched over the years as you have grown up and matured as people and it's scary 😂😂

Edit: spelling

It’s good that they are gaining a voice and letting it be heard. Adults need to realize the youth voice matters because we are the next leaders of our world and the generation that could either fix or destroy everything. The fact they are doing this and telling people what they think is good, especially on the topic of climate change and pollution. It gives me hope that our genre won’t mess up everything. GREAT VIDEO GUYS!!!

This thing is great!

They need to realize we need to act *now.* we’ve only got 11 years before climate change reaches high enough, that floods and wildfires become the new norm. This increasing heat is also making the oceans more acidic, not to mention warmer, and is impacting marine life as well. All the information I’m saying here is backed up by my own research I’ve been compiling from trusted sources. We *need* them to act. Now more than ever. And it needs to be now, before it’s too late. Spread word.

Tomorrow there is a worldwide #fridaysforfuture demonastration. I think after having seen this great musical number about teens having the power to change something, we should start showing the politicians the same thing. Every voice matters.

Keith Gaspar:
First and foremost, much respect to the performers for combining their art with such an urgent message that needs to constantly be repeated. They are correct that it falls upon them to push some of us older ones in the right direction.

Second, it's awesome to see a performance which was recorded live. To me, it gives a better measure of the true talent of these extraordinary kids as they perform without the comfort of lip syncing to a backing track. Wonderful job!
