"Chicken Little Was Right" as written by Mark Volman, Jim Pons, Al Nichol, Howard Kaylan and John Barbata....
Did ya hear what happened to the world today?
Somebody came an' they took it away.
Wrapped it up in a wire net,
Took it away an' it ain't back yet.

We were waiting,
We were watching.
Yes we knew it all along.
You were wrong.

Put it in a place where dead words lie.
Underneath a tombstone, ten miles high.
We're so safe, so secure,
Heaven knows we're absolutely sure.
Never grew up but now it's dead.
What'd'you suppose the epitaph read?
We're so young, we're so good
Heaven knows we surely must endure.

We were waiting,
We were watching.
Yes we knew it all along.
You were wrong.
Now it's gone.

And we saw the little squirrels
And we watched their thrifty deeds
Who prepared for winter's needs.
And we planted...


If that there world comes back again,
We'll be there, so let's be friends.

We'll be waiting
We'll be watching
Yes, we've been here all along
Oh so long...so so long.


Lemons growin' on our tree
Lemonade for you and me.

Written by: The Turtles (Howard Kaylan, Mark Volman, John Barbata, Jim Pons and Al Nichol). 1968
