"All They Ever Wanted" as written by and John Engelbert....
Rotten trees outside the city
They've been there for years
And that's all they ever wanted

Shallow figures within the city
They've been there forever and ever
And that's all they ever wanted

Don't follow me into the city
I won't show you a good time
I won't take you out dancing

Wouldn't it be nice to be stuck in the forest
Like an old rotten tree with no need or wanting

Guns were made for disturbing the peace
People in the city will never all agree
On what they ever wanted

Some people think we all should have just one task
And some people don't think before they ask
Or everything they ever wanted

People in the city will never all agree
On what they ever wanted
