The Lyrics

Nobody saw him running away from Yellowstone,
They never found his weapon or recovered his victim's bones,
But someone killed outdoor camping, took out its natural spark.
They got away with murder in our national parks.

Our sophisticated gadgets, our fat laziness
Slowly killed tradition and removed the wilderness.
(oh you tell them, Crockett!)
They all say not guilty, but the evidence is stark.
Yes, murder was committed in our national parks.

Oh, the outdoor tents no longer stand, and campfires barely burn,
But big RV's and laptops rule, when will we ever learn?
Old Boone would've had a cow at the modern campground farce,
Since they committed murder in our national parks.

They thought no one would miss'em, once s'mores were dead and gone.
They said no one likes wiener roasts and singing campfire songs.
(I'll still love 'em!)
Well there is no justice in it, and we are not old farts,
Murder's been committed in our national parks.

Oh, the outdoor tents no longer stand, and campfires barely burn,
But big RV's and laptops rule, when will we ever learn?
Don Nolan wouldn't sing his songs, it's no different from Wal-Mart,
Since they committed murder in our national parks.

Why, they'd even tell John Muir to give up, it really smarts!
There's been an awful murder in our national parks.

(AGES) I don't know who Don Nolan or John Muir are, but I think I got the ecological point you are trying to make here.

(Ages) I couldn't get the sound file to load and this wasn't really funny at all, but I still think that this was well done.
