It Ain’t Natural

“Mmmm…, I just got this nice, juicy tomato from the garden. Boy, you can’t create that in a laboratory.”
“ Yeah, that ain’t natural.”
“It ain’t right.”
“Hey! I think there’s a song in there somewhere.”
“Mmm, hmm…”

It ain’t natural, it ain’t right, It just ain’t natural, sure ain’t right
It ain’t natural, it ain’t right, It ain’t natural and it happens in the broad daylight

GMO tomatoes with starfish DNA, s’posed to have good shelf life, s’posed to make your day
Chemicals and pesticides kill those little bees and choke the life from plants and bugs
I think they’re killing me (Cough, cough…)

It ain’t natural, it ain’t right, It just ain’t natural, sure ain’t right
It ain’t natural, it ain’t right, It ain’t natural and it happens in the broad daylight

Government top heavy weighs everybody down, suckin’ up tax dollars
Not spreadin’ wealth around
Our teachers and our janitors guide and clean the nation
Yet the biggest piece of the money pie goes to administration
“What’s up with that? I don’t get it!”

It ain’t natural, it ain’t right, It just ain’t natural, sure ain’t right
It ain’t natural, it ain’t right, It ain’t natural and it happens in the broad daylight

Oil gushin’ in the sea kills waterfowl and fish, old Honda got good mileage
Now here’s my fondest wish
Oh, to see some progress made with our technology
Our needless greed for big and more, just makes me want to SCREAM!!!

“Now, listen,,,,, you can stay at home, you can sit and moan “
“You can shake your head and groan, or you can do something about it…”
“Here’s a few ideas… Try ‘em out with your friends & family…”

Join up in a car pool, support organic farms,
With clear communication choose healing over harm
Use old things in new ways, help build community
And understand the deep connect between the Universe and me
“And you and you and you and all of us..”

Now, that’s natural!, sure feels right (Uh, huh!)
Change is natural, gonna’ be alright (Oh, yeah!)
You know, it’s natural, sure feels right, life is natural, that’s a good thing, every day and night

“Now, THAT’S what I call NATURAL!!!”
