"Lite a Flame (The Animal Rights Song)" as written by and Laura Nyro....
In the zoo
They gave him a cage
Circus put a sparkle
On his face
Away from life
The elephant walks
Shadow across a dream
Lost for ivory

Oh, freedom
Lite a flame

It’s like prejudice
For the color of your skin
Prejudice for a woman
Prejudice for an animal
Like the elephant
Of the plain

Masai moon
In the morningrise
Africa—
The world comes alive
A matriarch
Leads the tribe
To the sweet water
The cool feelin’
And the way to survive

Oh, freedom
Lite a flame

It’s like prejudice
For the color of your skin
Prejudice for a woman
Prejudice for an animal
Like the elephant
Of the plain

Of the plain
For greed, not need
Societies sleep
Lead the killing hand on

Young ones
Full of spark
A wave of birds
Across the park
Kids climbing
Sliding, riding free
Elephant child hiding
Behind a tree

Prejudice
For an animal
Like the elephant
Of the plain
