"Paradise" as written by and John Prine....
Late at night I find myself again
Wondering and watching TV
I can't believe what is on the screen
Something that I wouldn't care to see

Many rare species will perish soon
And we will be short on food
Why do we have to be so selfish
We've got to change our attitude

I know that I am not
The only one that's worried
Why don't we all
Wake up, and realize

Like the birds in the sky
We are flying so high
Without making any kind of sacrifice
We've got so little time

To undo this crime
Or we'll lose our paradise
It seems to me that there's no sense at all
Nobody cares it's always the same

Mother nature's crying out in pain
We are the ones to blame
I know that I am not
The only one that's worried

Why don't we all
Wake up, and realize
Like the birds in the sky
We are flying so high

Without making any kind of sacrifice
We've got so little time
To undo this crime
Or we'll lose our paradise
