lyrics

Goodbye to Everything

Goodbye to the Tiger, the Tortoise and the Whale
Goodbye to the Buffalo, the slug and the cheeky little snail

We should have planned it, we should have banned it
Now we’ve messed up the planet, its too messed up to inhabit

Goodbye to the Elephant and the Grisly Bear
Hallo to bleeding gums and loosing all your hair

Goodbye to mahogany and all those hardwood trees
They made good doors but now they’ve gone, along with all the bees

Goodbye to the motor car, this time we’ve gone too far
There’s no Brent Crude left in the jar – we couldn’t stem the flow
Now its spread like black jam, over the beaches of Mexico

Goodbye to everything we use to hold so dear
We used to act so clever, now everything is clear

We use to gaze up at beautiful sunny skies
That was before the retinas Were burnt out of our eyes

We used to watch Dolphins cavorting in the seas
That was before we ate them all in tuna fish sandwiches

We use to face the future without a care
Now we’ve got to face the future without any air
