Oh Mother

Oh mother

Please forgive my brother

He is a trouble maker

A real treeshaker

But he has love for you

You know this is true

 

Oh mother

Please forgive my brother

He does not know he hurts you

With his drills digging  through

With his tree killing crew

 

Oh mother

Please forgive my brother

He is young and does not know

He catches and never lets go

Your big strong river fish

Despite your sacred wish

 

He shoots your five point deer

Even though he's well fed here

He traps your wild buffalo

He measures meat by the Kilo

 

Oh mother

Please forgive my brother

He doesn't clean up his mess

And he doesn't do his best

But he does have love for you

I hope he has love for you
