  • Mama Nature said
    "It's murder what you've done"
    I sent you forth my brightest world
    Now it's nearly gone

    Birds and bees
    Been telling me
    You can't see
    The forest for the trees

    You cover up your lies
    With sympathies
    And I got no solutions
    To your persecution

    Mama Nature said
    "I can't believe it's true"
    I gave you life and food for thought
    Look what did you do

    You're killing my rivers
    Drowning my baby streams
    Day by day by day by day
    I hear them scream

    I'm so disillusioned
    I'm so disillusioned

    Mama Nature said
    "You're guilty of this crime"
    Now it's not just a matter of fact
    But just a matter of time

    Cruel will be the vengeance
    So savage is the deed that's done
    And I've got no solutions
    To your own pollutions Writer/s: PHILIP PARRIS LYNOTT
