The family farm

The family farm
Is being sold
To build more homes
So I’ve been told

Lots of money
They’re being paid
They’d have stayed

Too good an offer
To be refused
Their fertile land
Won’t ever be used

Wild animals
Have been chased
No more trees
So they’re displaced

More new homes
Are being built
Until they’re bought
Now where’s the guilt

More family farms
Have now been sold
To build more stores
So I’ve been told

Too many stores
In shopping centers
Standing empty
Without any renters

The family farm
Will not remain
As song as someone
Would like to claim
