PINE TREES ROASTING IN A FOREST FIRE

Pine trees roasting in a forest fire
Wildfires jumping across the road
Any time anyplace this may happen again
Merry Christmas, to you

And fire fighters are on their way
I want it to burn and to them I’d like say
Don’t you know my Mother Earth wants to burn this way?
So why don’t you just go away

Pine trees roasting in a forest fire
Wildfires jumping across the road
Any time anyplace this may happen again
Merry Christmas, to you

And the smoke blows by my way
I don’t think air pollution is okay
If it burns my house I won’t have a place to stay
So to tree thinning don’t say “nay”

Pine trees roasting in a forest fire
Wildfires jumping across the road
Any time anyplace this may happen again
Merry Christmas, to you
Merry Christmas, to you

WE TREE HUGGERS
(parody of WE THREE KINGS)

We tree hug-gers disoriented are
Want woods left alone hear near and far
Gently creeping status quo kee-heeping
Not changing, keep them as they are

Ohhh Oh
Trees of beauty, trees of light
We don’t want to see them have the plight
Of Christmas tree cutting, shining in the night
Or fire fighters, loggers attacking, protect the snakes’ love lives

We tree hug-gers disoriented are
In the Pine Barrens we want some fire -- our star
Not that skimpy campfire-sized burns controlled they’re keeping
But burning hot, bright let it roll far

Ohhh Oh
Trees of beauty, trees of light
We don’t want to see them have the plight
Of Christmas tree cutting, shining in the night
Or fire fighters, loggers attacking, protect the snakes’ love lives

We tree hug-gers disoriented are
Don’t care if fire blocks the Garden State Parkway
We didn’t it want that road anyway
It led our wilderness experience astray
Gently creeping, flames procee-eeding
Who cares if homes are in the way?

Ohhh Oh
Trees of beauty, trees of light
We don’t want to see them have the plight
Of Christmas tree cutting, shining in the night
Or fire fighters, loggers attacking, protect the snakes’ love lives
Protect the rattlesnakes’ love lives

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better watch out I’m telling you why
The Whacko Greens are coming
To town

They’re making a dis
Saying it more than twice
They’re going to find
Who’s naughty and nice
The Whacko Greens are coming
To town

They know what you are keeping
To put more icing on their cake
They determine what is bad or good
So be good for the whackos’ sake

You better not throw dirt out
On a pond on your land, why?
Don’t expand cranberry bogs in helicopters they’ll spy
The Whacko Greens are coming
To town

By your land they will be creeping
For their coffers sake
They think you are Santa for their good
So be good for the whackos’ sake

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better watch out I’m telling you why
The Whacko Greens are coming
To town
The Whacko Greens are coming
To town
Cha! Cha! Cha!
