Animals are not a 'resource'

Ben White

"The briefest of encounters can still touch our hearts. 
Reminders of our mortality, our limited heartbeats,
can steel our resolution to make each one of them count;
to add a small liquid drop of love to a parched world."
Peter Alsop


BEN WHITE

Ben White put up a fight
To try to save the whales
Cause Ben White knows
You can't buy life
Life – Life – Life
No, Life is not for sale.

Ben White, he saw the light
Didn't want the redwoods cut
Cause Ben White knows
You can't buy life
Life – Life – Life
And your redwood deck is dead wood
And you know it in your gut.

Ben White, he got it right
Said "Animals feel pain!"
And Ben White knows
You can't buy life
Life – Life – Life
When we close our hearts
We loose more than we gain.

Ben White felt sick one night
When the cancer filled his shoes
And Ben White knows
That's how life goes
He loved Life – Life – Life
Cause every living thing on Earth
Is a precious life to loose
Life – Life – Life
It's not for people just to use.

Life – Life – Life
Life – Life – Life
Thanks Ben White,
Life – Life – Life
