Take It Back

Take It Back stele c12
with thanks to Elizabeth and Jinju

little kits sitting on a hill
mother fox says hey little foxes, sit very still
the sweet night you gotta smell it right
you gotta love this life you know
we got this place to live
because we have some friends out there
it true you know
they said we’re gonna make
the connection to the fox family
we’re gonna make sure they have
the trees in the Canadian forests
yeah we are gonna take it back, yesser ree

no more bags for no reason
gonna walk right back into that store
and say take back this trashy bag
I wanna help the foxes today

take it back, take it back, take it back, take it back

it’s not for the love that we lack
cuz we are gonna start taking it back
yeah we all make a little wrong turn here or there
but it’s not too late to turn around
and then show we care
put it back, I don’t need this stuff
it’s hurting my friends the foxes a lot

take it back, take it back, take it back, take it back

I can hear the redwoods and pinetrees and the spruce
I can hear oak trees they are saying to you and me
every single day take it back so they can grow up tall
and the foxes can play

take it back, take it back, take it back, take it back

please take your paper and plastic bags back to the stores to save the foxes and forests. reduce reuse recycle
