They're cutting down all the trees
Can someone stop them please
Thank God for people in this world
Who dedicate their lives to these
Thank God for people in this world
Who dedicate their lives to trees

Because...

Don't they know if they chop them down
There won't be anything to see
Don't they know if they chop them down
There won't be anything to breathe
Don't they know if they chop them down
It's only desert that they leave
Don't they know anything? NO

And it's all for the money
That love for money
Yes it's sweeter than honey
That love for money..and
Don't care about the future
Don't care about the past
You just chop those trees down
While the money it still lasts..
There's a war going on yeah
And it ain't in the middle east
It's happening in our own damn country
They're chopping down all the trees

Don't they know if they chop them down
There won't be anything to see
Don't they know if they chop them down
There won't be anything to breathe
Don't they know if they chop them down
It's only desert that they leave
Don't they know anything? NO

Hippie, ferel, protestors
Call them what you may
But if they weren't here right now
There wouldn't be a tree standing today
Hippie, ferel, protestors
Call them what you may
But if they weren't here right now
There wouldn't be a tree standing today

They're cutting down all the
They're cutting down
They're cutting down all the
They're cutting down

Don't they know if they chop them down
There won't be anything to see
Don't they know if they chop them down
There won't be anything to breathe
Don't they know if they chop them down
It's only desert that they leave
Don't they know anything? NO
Richard Court do you know anything?
Liberal Party do you know anything?
John Howard do you know anything?
Bunnings do you know anything?
Simcore do you know anything?
Hell no.
