(sang to Jingle Bell Rock)
1.) Jordan Cove, Jordan Cove, Jordan Cove Rock
Safe as a judge………..sweeter than fudge
Jobs for the family….and other half-truths
A Little hot sauce in the Gin and Vermouth.
Jordan Cove, Jordan Cove, Jordan Cove Rock
Everything’s fine in Jordan Cove time
They don’t see a problem in Jordan Cove square
But we have some questions there.
2.) There’s no guidance….with subsidence
In the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
With your submerged self on the Continental Shelf
You’ll find Juan de Fuca is the only one home
Riding the edge of the Accretionary wedge
It doesn’t matter how much they dredge.
It’s all academic when a quake sinks the dock
And does the Jordan Cove Rock
3.) Seismograph time is the right time
To blow the town away
To the unknown in the Subduction Zone
And it could happen any old day.
Nobody left to turn out the lights
Too late to turn back the clock.
You know it sounds funny to waste all that money
On that Old Jordan Cove Rock
4.) One day we’ll wake up with a new ship in our bay
Longer than the arm of the law you might say.
Stretching from Charleston clear to Empire
Loaded to the decks with frozen liquid fire.
Protected by Gun-Boats and Paratus Coast Guard
I hope they don’t show their hole card.
The fishermen will scatter if they get run off
And do the Jordan Cove Rock.
5.) It’s really not all that hard to understand
California needs gas more than we need our land
The Supreme Court ruling may be final you see
A good lawyer can delay for an eternity.
Make them prove they have a right to your property line.
Put the pipe-line where the sun doesn’t shine.
Just say No…..See how they stand the shock
Doing the Jordan Cove Rock.
