Everglades (Are Not What They Used To Be)

The Everglades are not what they used to be
That’s thanks to you and me and decades of apathy
The Everglades are not what they used to be
Many long years ago.

The River of Grass is dying and drying up
Panthers and manatees gone in the blow-up
The crocodile’s fate is surely a toss-up
And it’s a crying shame.

CHORUS:
Fish and fowl alike
Are told to take a hike
So developers can spoil and pollute the place
(And make a lot of mo-oney).

Join with us and help save the Everglades
Hurry, before it fades and no longer makes the grade
‘Cause the Everglades just ain’t what they used to be
Many long years ago.

CHORUS:
Fish and fowl alike
Are told to take a hike
So FPL can build another power plant
(And make a lot of mo-oney).
