    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!
