Roy Harper – Garden of Uranium – a song about alternative energy

This is a song about the idiots who like to pollute with their radioactive waste when we could be harnessing the sun and wind. It was recorded in 1988 and fortunately we’ve come a long way since then. Roy was ahead of his time.

Nuclear power is a no no for me unless they solve how to deal with the waste.

We need clean energy and we need to look after this beautiful planet. Our children and grandchildren deserve it.

I first heard this in the studio on those amazing speakers and it knocked me out.

The Garden of Uranium

There’s fuel in a hand shake
And power in a smile
Energy to spare
And time to reconcile
In every blade of grass
And breath of air
A future sitting there
And you don’t care about the children
There’s plenty where they’re from
To populate the garden
Of uranium
There’s power in a sun ray
And travel on the tide
Hurricanes and storms
To saddle up and ride
In every wind of change
On any side
An idea to be tried
And you don’t care about the children…
And then there are the meglos
With power in their hands
Dumping lethal waste
In shallow pasturelands
Scattering suicide
Into the winds
And no one understands
And they don’t care about the children…

  1. Not Solved? I thought it was all sorted out. Don’t we just build big concrete boxes in the north east of England, fill them up with toxic waste then stick a lid on top?
    Sorted.

    1. Ha!! That was certainly the plan. Unfortunately for them it was ascertained that the containment wasn’t good enough and people up North weren’t stupid enough to allow them.

  2. Much better by a lot. If only he could keep a level playing field of quality control.

    Compare to “O Chaco, O Checo, O Chico, O Choco, O Chuco…” You can’t.

I'd like to hear from you...
