Intro
We can be happy without meat.
There is plenty of other things to eat.
No need to consume animal flesh -
Take veggie food - healthy and fresh...

What have they done that you slaughter them?
What harm they did that you're killing them?
Is it ignorance or what else you say?
It is arrogance - Is that your way?
And where's your heart ... in all of this?

Refrain
Why can't we leave animals to play, 
      birds to fly and fish to swim?
Let us try and a new world of eating will begin.

Or will you claim its nature's flow?
And meat tastes good, and you can't say no
You mainly care for yourself alone
You take the flesh and throw the bone
And where's your heart ... in all of this?

Refrain
Why can't we leave animals to play, 
      birds to fly and fish to swim?
Let us try and a new world of eating will begin.

Bridge
Remember, we don't live in the jungle anymore.
Protecting - not killing - is what civilisation's for.
As we want to live in happiness and peace
So do the animals - please let the killing cease.

Refrain
Fruits, grains and veggies are a delicious treat -
Such a great variety of food to eat...
Let us try and a new world of eating will begin

Refrain
Yes, we must leave animals to play, 
      birds to fly and fish to swim.
Let us do it, and a new world of eating will begin.

We can be happy without meat.
There is surely enough to eat...

|: Yes, we must leave animals to play, 
birds to fly and fish to swim.
Let us do it, and a new world of eating will begin... :|
