CHORUS
All around the country, They're changing green to grey,
What grows up for a century, In a minute you can throw it away.

They come down here with chainsaws, They come down with JCBs
They're digging up all of the hedgerows, boys, And they're digging up all of the trees.

I saw the man, the engineer, Pocket-full of TNT
And he laid it under the mountain side, And blew it to eternity.

I lived down by the meadow, I used to live down by the wood,
But they come down with bricks and ready-mix, Now there's a city where the trees once stood.

You can spend your lifetime, Writing to bureaucracy
But you'll use up so much paper, You'll just be digging up another tree.

They come down here with chainsaws, They come down with JCBs
They're digging up all of the hedgerows, boys, And they're digging up all of the trees.
