If You Could Talk to the Animals

If you could talk to the animals
What would you say?
"Everything’s all right", or "it’s been a bad day"
What would they say if they could talk to you?
Doot ‘a do do, a doot ‘n do do
Would they talk about money, or the things that they love
Like being free, and clean air above
Or the things they love slowly going away
Doot ‘n do day, a doot ‘n do day
What would a little bird say if her tree gets taken away
What would she say, what would she say, what would she say?

If you could talk to the animals
What would they say?
About the dirty water where their babies play
What would they say if they could talk to you?
Doot ‘n do do, a doot ‘n do do
Would they talk about the paint we put in the drain
Or would they talk about the acid coming down in the rain?
What would they say if they could talk to you?
Doot ‘n do do, a doot ‘n do do
What would the little fish say as the poison’s coming his way?
What would he say, what would he say, what would he say?

CHORUS:
Stop and think about us
Our future’s in your hands
We can live together
We can share the land
Stop and think about us
This we say to you
We are brothers and sisters with you.

If you could talk to the animals
What would they say?
As the cities get bigger and push them away
What would they say if they could talk to you?
Doot ‘n do do, a doot ‘n do do
Would they talk about the noise of the passing cars
Or would they talk about pollution hiding the stars?
What would they say if they could talk to you?
Doot ‘n do do, a doot ‘n do do
What would the black bear say as the hunter’s coming his way
What would he say, what would he say, what would he say?

REPEAT CHORUS
