A cry of protest from Harry against human arrogance, corporate greed and environmental destruction


Baa baa black sheep have a little wool
You can stay up late just don’t fall off the wall
Take your time it’s all for me
You gave your life so we could flog it for pretty much free
And even when the sun don’t shine
I’m telling you baby you’re just not my type
I wouldn’t try to rob you blind
I’m crooked
So baa baa black sheep have a little wool
You’ll need it when humanity, leaves and winter fall
Fatter sacks from closer shaves
You just ain’t what the target markets want to save
At the end of the day
And even when the sun don’t shine
They’re shifting lilos at inflated price
And though they’ve heard the joke a thousand times
They’re laughing
Take me high enough to try and make it there
Take me high enough to see the sun
So bye bye black sheep have a little wool
And even when the sun don’t shine
Their crops can still photosynthesise
And even when their livestock dies
They’re laughing
We’ll take you high enough you’ll wanna come in here
You’ll wanna give your life to see our sun
And I’m better, babe, don’t ask me why
Just read between the lines
What’s the matter, baby, is the print too fine?
We made it watertight.
‘Cos the drop, so sheer, second we’ll kick you off the edge
Can’t catch me, babe, don’t even try
Now whose left behind?
Not I
