This song is available on Stan Slaughter's Rot ‘N’ Roll
Pretty paper, pretty trees,
Pretty forest, pretty please!
Pretty easy, just savin' trees,
Please recycle now, pretty please!
A stack of paper shorter than me,
Saves a forty foot pine tree.
Think of all the news I need,
Think of all the trees I read.
Would you believe the old trash can,
Is where the forest often lands.
It’s thrown away with so much ease,
In the road and in the breeze.
Put your paper in the recycle bin,
We'll turn around and use it again.
We'll grind it up and make insulation,
We'll have a warmer and safer nation.
Just put your paper in brown paper sacks,
Bring it on down and they'll take it back.
We'll save the forest and the skies and the trees,
We'll save the earth for you and me.
