If you go past the slums and the overflowing dumps
and leave all the towns behind,
In the woods you can hear with a very careful ear
as somebody speaks their mind.

    WE DON'T WANT YOUR PLASTIC RIVERS
    and your saturated streams.
    We would like some peace & quiet of our own.
    WE DON'T WANT YOUR paper mountains
    and your decimated trees.
    WE DON'T WANT you,
    WE DON'T WANT you in our home.

You can't tell, but the sound seems to come from all around,
behind every branch and leaf.
You can't see, but you know that with every step you go
small eyes watch you constantly.

First a squirrel, then a doe, then a 'possum and a crow,
and all kinds of birds on wing,
then the frogs and the snakes and the fishes in the lake
all join in as one to sing.

    CHORUS

You can swear and protest that you've done your very best,
but there's nothing you could do.
Then you make your retreat in a guilty, hurried heat,
and return to your factory spew.

    CHORUS
