LIFE IS JUST THAT WAY (written by Finbar Furey)

Why do children frown like this
And why not do they smile
And tell me why not do they play
Just for a little while
The ponds they are all polluted
And the little fish are gone away
So wipe your tears little baby
For life is just that way

You ask me where the grass is gone
They've taken it away
To build a concrete playground
They call the motorway
And the trees they went all black and damp
And the leaves they did decay
So wipe your tears little baby...

You ask me where the birds have gone
And did they really fly
They fed them poisonous seed to eat
And they also had to die
And the eggs went hard with the yellow crust
And they all died on that way
So wipe...

You ask me where all life has gone
With eyes that look so sad
Pollution was the cause of it
It spread all through this land
With sours and wounds they fell all night
And they all died through that day
So wipe ..

So now you see little baby
You can not play out there
We really tried to tell them
But they did not really care
You may sit and play with your toys in here
But you must not stay away
So wipe
