We Just Want the World -- not its ashes. There's certainly no future for any of humanity's hopes and dreams if the earth itself is strangled to death by oil spills and chainsaws.

Story behind the song
We Just Want the World -- not its ashes. There's certainly no future for any of humanity's hopes and dreams if the earth itself is strangled to death by oil spills and chainsaws.
Lyrics
When we're living in the White House And debating on the hill Of all your crazy antics We'll all have had our fill We'll be closing down munitions plants And Old Glory will be furled 'Cause we don't want your big machines We just want the world And a bill will be proposed Section number one We're shutting down the oil rigs And turning towards the sun The air will be clean For all the boys and girls 'Cause we don't want your oil tankers We just want the world Face the executioner Shut the logging camps all down Get busy planting hemp Leave the trees there in the ground Life is so precious On this little, spinning pearl We don't want your bulldozers We just want the world We'll be closing down the jails Fixing up the schools Distributing those stocks and bonds Changing all the rules We'll elect a CEO Maybe a rabbit or a squirrel 'Cause we don't want your money We just want the world We'll be swimming in the rivers And running to the hills Reading in the history books Of wars and oil spills If it's linear we'll bend it If it's a straight line it'll curl 'Cause we don't want your dead-end highway We just want the world (Repeat first verse) ---- Created December, 1998 Copyright David Rovics 1998, all rights reserved
