EPA Refrain

Power lines are deadly

To millions of birds each year

Oil spills and wind turbines too

That’s why there’s a hundred-years law on the books

A treaty protecting each eagle and wren

 

Birdlovers unite to uphold the law

being threatened by grift and by greed

Politicians seeking profit and gain

Laying waste to this beautiful land

 

Pay attention, look up, speak up and take care

If birds are not safe and allowed to fly free

Sadly, my friends then, neither are we
