The Paper Song

Recommended Posts

I want to save the Earth,

but this is written on a piece of paper.

Blue ink between blue lines, that's all I need

To think freely

I love climbing trees,

and I don't want to cut them down

But the axe is all that keeps money in this town now

I don't want to carve stone 'cause that stays forever

Don't want to draw in sand 'cause that's kicked away

Don't want to burn wood 'cause I'll burn my finger

A feather and inkwell are all I need to say what I have to say...

I'll bike instead of drive and eat local vegetables

All in the name of keeping Antarctica cold... for the penguins

But I'll never succumb to saving our planet

If that means giving up papyrus and parchment and pen

I don't want to carve stone 'cause that stays forever

Don't want to draw in sand 'cause that's kicked away

Don't want to burn wood 'cause I'll burn my finger

A feather and inkwell are all I need to say what I have to say...

Here's me performing it with banjo, guitar and vox.

I could listen also. Liked it very much. Bob Dylan-like, really.

If mine, I would look at the lyrics dropping the "and" between "papyrus" and "paper." It isn't necessary and seems to flow a bit better without it.

Great job, Daniel.

Wow! That was so environmental friendly song.

It is full of lessons. What inspire you to

write that? You really did a great job.

Keep it up. You inspire a lot of people.

That's a rare talent you can have.
