The Lyrics

Tree Felling

There's a wood stove down in my basement
It keeps me and family warm
There's a fireplace sometimes we use it
It helps us to whether the storm

There's a birch tree out in the backyard
It's a home for this old spotted owl
But to keep us warm through the winter
I think I'll have to chop it down

And I'm Tree....Tree Fellin'!!
Yeah I'm Tree....Tree Fellin' !!

So I grabbed my new John Deere chainsaw
And began to cut through the birch
Then my hippie activist neighbor
Started yelling at me from his porch

Chorus 2:
Stop Tree...Tree Felling!!
Stop Tree...Tree Felling!!

So I asked him, "Dude what's the problem?"
He said "Hey man, don't ya know 'bout the owl?"
I said "Too bad, I don't give a hoot" and
The tree hugger started to scowl

So I offered a common ground solution
"If you'll let me cut through this bark...
On the eve of the great Armageddon
For the endangered—I'll build them an Ark"

(Repeat first chorus)

I loved the 'Then my hippie activist neighbor' line. The rhythm was perfect and it added an antagonist to your story too.
