There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the squirrels want more nuts
And the oaks ignore their pleas.
The trouble with the squirrels,
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the nuts.
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the squirrels
Can't be happy in their acorn free zone.
There is trouble in the forest,
And the creatures all have fled,
As the squirrels scream "Oppression!"
And the oaks just shake their heads
So the squirrels formed a union
And demanded equal rights.
"The oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us nuts."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.
