Lyrics concluding Floyd Westerman’s testimony in 1992 at the World Uranium Hearings in Salzburg, Austria.
And I told them not to dig for gold
For if they did the Eagle would die
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen to me..

And I told them if the Eagle died
There would be no keeper of the sky
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen to me..

And I told them not to dig for uranium,
For if they did, the children would die.
They didn't listen, they didn't listen,
They didn't listen to me.

And I told them if the children die,
There would be no keepers of the land.
They didn't listen. they didn't listen
They didn't listen to me..

And if there were no keeper of the land
Machines would come and soon pollute the sky.
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen to me..

And I told them if they pollute the sky
Man would have to move into the sea
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen to me..

And I told them if they destroy the sea
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen, they didn't listen
They didn't listen…
