I heard the beavers screaming
I heard the butterflies cry
I heard the trees a-dreaming
Of moving to the sky

I heard the toucans sobbing
I heard the wallabees wail
I felt the forest throbbing
With the shrieking of the snails


People, people, people, people
People can’t you see
The earth’s the place where nature lives
Let’s love her tenderly

I heard the mountains bawling
I heard the horses bleat
I heard the woodchucks calling
To the swallows in the street

All the creatures of the canyon
All the creatures of the sea
For all the hell we’ve caused them
They won’t be friends with me.
