  1. We’re gonna…
    Cap and trade
    all carbon emissions
    gonna cap and trade
    that will be our mission

    We’re gonna cap and trade
    see what I mean
    the government is
    going green today…
    We cap and trade.

    See cap and trade
    charges folks for releasing carbon
    like companies that use
    vehicles that park and

    utilities and factories
    who pass the cost
    to people who will pay
    for cap and trade

    It sounds like cap and trade
    is a tax we pay then
    No sir, cap and trade
    is just a regulation
