  • I saw a cat with a machine in his brain
    The man beside him said he didn't feel any pain
    I'd like to see that man take out that machine
    And stick it in his own brain
    You know what I mean

    I saw a rabbit with its eyes full of tears
    The lab that owned her had been doing it for years
    Why don't we make them pay for every last eye
    That couldn't cry its own tears
    Do you know what I mean

    When I tell you that we'll all be
    Looking for changes (oh oh)
    Changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures
    And we will learn how to grow
    Learn how to grow, grow, grow

    Well I tell you that we'll all be
    Looking for changes (oh oh)
    Changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures
    And we will learn how to grow
    When we're looking for changes

    I saw a monkey that was learning to choke
    A guy beside him gave him cigarettes to smoke
    And every time that monkey started to cough
    The bastard laughed his head off
    Do you know what I mean

    When I tell you that we'll all be
    Looking for changes (oh oh)
    Changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures (oh oh)
    And we will learn how to grow

    When we're looking for changes
    We're looking for changes
    Yeah we're looking for changes
    Looking for changes in the way we are Writer/s: Paul James McCartney

  • Christy from Palm Springs, Capaul is absolutely right!!! people tend to ignore animal cruelty and just kind of pretend that its not happening when it is!!! the same with beef cows and chickens etc. those animals are treated SO CRUELLY before they are killed to eat!!!!!!! people either don't know how horribly the cows and chickens are treated or they just pretend its not happening. but the problem is not going to go away!!so all of you guys listen to paul and STOP SUPPORTING THE BEEF INDUSTRY!!!!!!
