Let them be

 

By D W Phoenix

 

See the seals and their pups

As their laying on the ice

If you look into their faces

Into those big round innocent eyes

Where they lay is all red

For every one of them is dead

Killed by a blow

Before those pups could grow

Let them be

Let them be

Let them be able to grow

Let them be

Let them be

Let them be as free as you and me

 

Elephants and rhinos

Just a carcass on the ground

Where they have been cruelly slaughtered

Even their feet have been chained and bound

Stripped of their tusks and horn

There hunted from the day there born

Valued in gold

Easily brought and sold

Let them be

Let them be

Let them be able to grow

Let them be

Let them be

Let them be as free as you and me

 

See the whales and their calves

Floating dead upon the sea

Once looked so royal and majestic

Now their all just a commodity

The ships will strip them bear

Till not a single thing is there

So many died

All harpooned in the side

Let them be

Let them be

Let them be able to be free

Let them be

Let them be

Let them be as free as you and me
