The Lyrics

Sadder Day in the bark,
I think they’re tearing my forest down.
Homeless birds, squirreless herds,
Mother Nature tumb-a-lin’ down.
Dillweeds sawing, bungholes clawing,
Refusing to go green.
Like carpenters gone wild.
Can you dig it, no I won’t,
Been protesting such a long time,
Till Sadder Day.


Sadder Day in the bark,
I think a new Walmart will go there.
Sadder Day in the bark,
Next up is a gigantic job fair.
Future paper, meet your Maker,
A man making copies,
The staple-sorted kind.
Will you help me change the world?
Can you dig it, no I won’t.
Been protesting such a long time.
Till this Day.

Bridge:
Fast motion buzz saws, spewing sawdust right my way.
A tan man can still make money his own way
Once cut down, all is lost
All is lost.

No more life in the bark
Everyday’s a carbon copy.
No more life in the bark.
Will have to go and plant a new tree.
Peckers happy, clean yet sappy,
The squirrel cuddles his nuts,
Awaiting his mating call.
Can you dig it, yes I can,
And I’ve been planting such a long time.
For today.

I always hated it when great forests and woodlands are being taken down for some commercial purposes. I feel so sad about every woodland creatures' habitats being invaded and lost. Where are the environmentalists when you need them the most? Oh, well, I guess we also have to make a living for ourselves commercially, too. Anyways, I love the way you wrote this song. Fluently paced, creative, and controversial. I'll preserve 555 acres of woodland for ya!

Thanks alot Christie, this video should be posted by Monday, once again with the Chipmunks type vocals. Once in a while it feels good to parody something with a meaning and a cause, if you will.

Jim, an astounding work. Out of town developers making a quick buck, getting out, and leaving nothing to the locals. Gone are the friendly hardware stores, mom and pop stores, pharmacies, all to make room for chains. There should be a balance (sustainable living) Open Space. you should do Little Boxes by Pete Seeger.

Thanks so much guys, I think being raised on Stephen Stills' "songs for a cause" are now starting to come out in greater frequency. It's no doubt a plus to make folks laugh and think at the same time...
