Where Are We Gonna Work (When The Trees Are Gone) - Jello Biafra & Mojo Nixon with the Toadliquors:



Well I come from a long long line

Of tree-falling men

And this company town was here

Before my grandpappy settled in

We kept enough trees a-standin'

So our kids could tow the line

But now a big corporation came and bought us out

Got us working overtime



But tell me

Where are we gonna work

When the trees are gone?

Will the big boss have us wash his car

Or maybe mow his lawn?

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a lumperjack man

But I fear it ain't for long

Where are we gonna work

When the trees are gone?



Now these corporate mergers

Make no sense to me

But they got this junk-bond dept to pay

So we're clear-cutting all the trees

Now that old fishin' hole

Where I used to take my son

We trashed it out last Monday morn'

Oh Lord, what have we done?



But tell me

Where are we gonna work

When the trees are gone?

Will the big boss have us wash his car

Or maybe mow his lawn?

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a lumperjack man

But I fear it ain't for long

Where are we gonna work

When the trees are gone?



Now these Wall Street money man

They got me mad

I got a family to feed, and fallin' trees

Is the only job I ever had

Say now folks, we just can't stand here

While this slash and burn goes on

We've got to slow down this big corporation

Before all the trees are gone



But tell me

Where are we gonna work

When the trees are gone?

Will the big boss have us wash his car

Or maybe mow his lawn?

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a lumperjack man

But I fear it ain't for long

Where are we gonna work

When the trees are gone?
