Lyrics

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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