The Lyrics

they have joined the bandwagon, sayin' trees cannot go
they're takin' them a stance 'gainst the loggers, you know
people would do whatever they could
no sense gettin' hostile
climb up in the branches and save that wood

hippies camped in trees
we see 'em forty feet above the ground
we have these hippies camped in trees
and every night all the loggers came around
and tried to knock 'em down

perched, is a boy, devout in his spiel
"give them their rights, for these trees have appeal"
climbed up six feet...and then twenty one
strode unto the branches
the treetops here are dotted with these folks by the ton

hippies camped in trees
they look a lot like monkeys when they bound
we have these hippies camped in trees
and once or twice, we have seen them fallin' down
and sailin' to the ground

they're clever...no foolin' and they fought like hell
savin' trees were their style
demonstrators do not mind the trouble
and they haven't been down for a while...uh-huh
they haven't been down for a while...uh huh

cause the forests are flaggin', it is onward they go
the trees must have a chance to be healthy and grow
squattin' there...as long as they could
preachin' as they nestled
tellin' all the throng here to save that wood

hippies camped in trees
they'll be one in most treetops we have found
we have these hippies camped in trees
within their rights, not to climb back to the ground
they'd rather hang around

hippies camped in trees
appearin' every season to expound
we have these hippies camped in trees
and every night there are more that come around
and brother, do they hound

Tree-mendous. Just remember to point out to certain individuals on this site (and you know who you are!) that the "wood" to be saved here is actual trees.

Nice parody :) You know you can always crank the death metal if you want to clear them out, right?
