We'll not come on your tiger hunt,
To put skins on our floors!
And cutting down their forest homes
It’s something we abhor.
We’ll not kill birds or animals
As sport or human game,
And wearing bears' fur on our heads
Seems such a dreadful shame.
We’ll not kill noble elephants
And steal their tusks for wealth –
Or grind up horns from rhinos
For the sake of ‘human health’.
We’ll not take panda habitat
And the only food they eat -
And a woman’s scarf of silver fox
Is not what we call ‘sweet’!
We’ll not destroy the rain forests -
The place where wildlife roam.
We love the creatures of our world
And the places they call home.
So we’ll not come on your tiger hunt
Or join you in your fun.
We’re children who respect our world –
As so should everyone!
