Hope you enjoyed your flight
In one of our new straw aeroplanes
You'll find things here are just like
What you're used to

There's lots of waste and razor wire
And no one gives a damn about the land
We just stand around and stare
Like you folks do

For we ain't got no brains
And we ain't got no hearts
It's just that wild old wind
That tears us all apart

We're the scarecrow people
Have we got lots in common with you
And if you don't start living well
You're all gonna wind up scarecrow people too

Hope you enjoyed your meal
It's only gas and chemicals
We thought that you'd prefer
Something not nature made

Now while you're here can you advise us
On a war we'd like to start
Against some scarecrows over there
A different shade?

For we ain't got no brains
And we ain't got no hearts
It's just that wild old wind
That tears us all apart

We're the scarecrow people
Have we got lots in common with you
And if you don't start living well
You're all gonna wind up scarecrow people too

We don't have no tears here, no one hopes or cares or fears here
For the old, the sick, the poor and them what taint you
We thought we'd base our civilization upon yours
'Cause you're the smartest animals on earth, now ain't you?

We don't have no love here, there's no need to rise above here
No one wants to write a book or try to paint thee
We thought we'd base our civilization upon yours
'Cause we're all dead from our necks up, now ain't we?

And we ain't got no brains
And we ain't got no hearts
It's just that wild old wind
That tears us all apart

We're the scarecrow people
Have we got lots in common with you
And if you don't start living well
You're all gonna wind up scarecrow people too

And I ain't got no brains
And I ain't got no heart
It's just them other humans
Tear my soul apart

I'm a scarecrow person
Have I got quite some message for you
For if we don't start learning well
We're all gonna wind up scarecrow people too
