This song is about the devastation from the meltdown at Three Mile Island, PA. environment, social commentary.
Three mile island 062010


Shocked at the damage done by the meltdown at TMI, Pres. Jimmy Carter asked Adm.Hiram Rickover
for advice. He told Carter that if he told the people the truth about TMI, it would be the end of nuclear energy. On his deathbed, Rickover signed a statement about the devastation at TMI and that he had advised Carter of the above. Song material from the investigative report of David Detmold in the Montague Reporter.
Three Mile Island, 1979,
leakin' toxic gases while on line
Didn't tell the people,
kind of asinine,
Just a little meltdown
down on the farm..

Just a little meltdown
at the power station:
Now the cows you're milking
got contamination..
Cats & dogs & sheep & hogs
Mosquitoes & flies & birds all die.
Just a little meltdown,
down on the farm.

The Recorder's Tim Blagg says there was no injury.
How about the cancer that killed Marie?
Jean Trimmer's hair in 3 weeks was white
Came out in her comb in the morning & night.
Her kidney dried up & disappeared...
Doesn't Tim Blagg think that that's kinds weird?

Just a little meltdown,
down on the farm..
Just a little meltdown
at the power station.
Does your Hershey chocolate
taste like radiation?
Cats & cows & sheep & sows
having birth mutations

Just a little meltdown
down on the farm...

Bill Peters was working on auto repair
Got diahrea from three mile air
Blistered so badly, could not blow his nose
His dog and cats' eyes burned white from their dose.
The NRC said it was all in his head.
Told him his dog & his cats were not dead.
Told him the walnuts were still on the trees...
Told him there weren't any casualties.

Just a little meltdown
down on the farm.
Just a little meltdown
at the power station..

Lots of people dyin'
from cancer complications
A scalp with an itch,
dead fox in a ditch
Hard bups on your head
& skin that is red.

Just a little meltdown
down on the farm..
