We Cannot Eat Money
Pollution and nuclear poisoning has become Worldwide
by Francis Duggan
And will there be a Worldwide famine when the Earth we have destroyed?
When the last root crop has failed and the last animal has died money we cannot eat
There will be a Worldwide famine without milk and bread and meat.
The World as we now know it cannot carry on this way
More bombings in the Middle East we hear of every day
Droughts and famines in Africa how long can this go on
'Tis not too late of changing our ways before all hope has gone
For the survival of the future generations who must suffer for our greed
It is not by good example that we have chosen to lead
The people we call our leaders have been leading us astray
And for our abuse of Nature the price will be great to pay.
Wars and terrorism and famines we hear of every day
And in the world of big business and entertainment there is corruption and decay
But only when the last root crop has failed and the last animal has died we will come to realize
That we cannot eat money though too late then to be wise
