"Guns, Guns, Guns" as written by and Burton Cummings....
American hunter, bring 'em up the north side
Guns, guns, guns
Run, take the money, here's a bullet for your boyfriend
Guns, guns, guns
Eagle all gone, and no more caribou
Guns, guns, guns
You be the red king, I'll be the yellow pawn

God speed mother nature
Never really wanted to say goodbye
God speed mother nature, you know that I'm calling it now
Never really wanted to say goodbye
God speed mother nature
Never really wanted to say goodbye
God speed mother nature
Never really wanted to say goodbye

Shoot a few, knock 'em down, cost you half a buck now
Guns, guns, guns
Babe give you kisses if you hit a rubber duck now
Guns, guns, guns
You be the red king, I'll be the yellow pawn
Guns, guns, guns
Eagle all gone, and no more caribou
Guns, guns, guns
Eagle all gone, and no more caribou
Guns, guns, guns
Oh eagle all gone, and no more caribou
Guns

God speed Mother Nature
Never really wanted to say goodbye
God speed mother nature, I'm weeping, I'm crying for you
Never really wanted to say goodbye
God speed mother nature, you know that I'm weeping for you
Never really wanted to say goodbye
God speed mother nature, and I'm crying
Never really wanted to say goodbye
I know you're gonna hear me, I'm weeping, nature
Weeping, mother nature
Never really wanted to say goodbye
And I'm weeping for you
Weeping for you, mother nature
And I'm crying for you
Never really wanted to say goodbye
Take care and visit me, Mother, Mother Nature
And I'm missing you
Never really wanted to say goodbye
Where have you gone?
God speed, Mother Nature, and I'm weeping for you

    General CommentOne of The Guess Who's finest songs and nobody's commented on it yet...

    Like 99.9% of all songs, it's about what it says it's about: The Guess Who are obviously afraid that Nature is getting demolished by mankind's quest for money and entertainment and are said to see it go. The damage is so bad that only a god could help Nature now. I tend to agree with the band, and it's sad, really, that the song was written in the 60's (I believe, so don't demolish me if I'm wrong) and on the whole, mankind hasn't really seemed to get the idea that they are literaly destroying their planet... what a shame.

    General CommentIt was written in the eraly 70's, however yes it is an amazing song. Man taking mother Earth for granted, she is dying and we never really wanted to say goodbye..

    General Commentyeah this song is pretty straight forward but nothing short of amazing. I could see it played for the closing credits of the story of man "never wanted to say goodbye" very sad, but right on the money. Not the first time they write about mother nature either.

    General CommentGreat song, but I think the lyrics posted here are not quite right. Isn't he at the end saying "Never really wanted to sing about it". To me that is better and I think correct.

    General CommentMother Nature was being ravaged by Americans coming up to Canada to hunt caribou, Upthe. Nature was going away. "Never really wanted to say goodby."

    Listen to it again. It's what he's saying.

    The eagle is no longer endangered, so I hope Americans wised up an the caribou are okay too.
