Joni Mitchell

Hot winds and hunger cries--Ethiopia

Flies in your babies' eyes--Ethiopia

Walking sticks on burning plains

Betrayed by politics

Abandoned by the rains

On and on--the human need

On and on--the human greed profanes


Your top soil flies away--Ethiopia

We pump ours full of poison spray--Ethiopia

Between the brown skies and sprinkling lawns

I hear the whine of chain saws

Hacking rain forests down

On and on--insanities

On and on--Short sighted greed abounds


Little garden planet-oasis in space

Some hearts hurt--they can hardly stand it

Famine phantoms at the garden gates


Every Sunday on T.V.--Ethiopia

You suffer with such dignity--Ethiopia

A T.V. star with a P.R. smile

Calls your baby "it" while strolling

Through your tragic trials

On and on--stupidity

On and on--the basic needs are defiled

Good air--good water--good earth


Little garden planet--oasis in space

Some hearts hurt--they can hardly stand the waste
