I was just thinking about the way it's supposed to be, 
F               C                      G
I'll eat the plants and the growths' round the trees,
       C 
And I'll live on vegetables and I'll grow on seeds,
                      C                  G                     C
But I don't eat animals and they don't eat me,
            F                G                        
Oh no, I don't eat animals 'cause I love them, you see,
               G                                              G
I don't eat animals, I want nothing dead in me. 


C
I don't eat white flour, white sugar makes you rot, 
       F                       C                    G
Oh, white could be beautiful but mostly it's not.
    C                
A little bit of whole meal, some raisins and cheese, 
      F                                                       C
But I don't eat animals and they don't eat me.
            F                G                         C
Oh no, I don't eat animals 'cause I love them, you see, 
F                G                                              G
I don't eat animals, I want nothing dead in me. 


C                                                                                       
I eat the plants and the fruit from the trees, 
F               C                        G
And I'll live on vegetables and I'll grow on seeds, 
C
A little bit of whole meal, some raisins and cheese
       F                C                  G                      C
But I won't eat animals and they won't eat me,
            F              C                 G                    C
Oh no, I'll live on life, I want nothing dead in me, 
                F                  C                  G                       C 
You know I'll become life and my life will become me, 
                 F              C                 G                     C
You know I'll live on life and my life will live on me.
