Let's show care!
Let's show care to our animals, just because they can't talk,
They don't deserve the cruel abuse, some then can't walk;
Chained up and starved, put in tiny cages far too small,
Please let's help these animals, come one, come all.
Let's show care to the furry creatures like on the beaches, those seals,
They clubbier those parent, let them know what it feels;
Then they leave those babies, to die slowly, thru starvation,
I think they should be punished, it's cruel elimination.
Let's show care to our animals thru this terrorible cruelty,
Putting hooks in the dogs and cats, that's so lousy,
Yet the judges give a lenient sentence, so small,
Please sign this petition. Let's get behind it one and all.
Let's show care to our animals, in the farms everywhere,
Also in the pet shops, in the heat which causes harm there;
How would they like to be stuck in a small area, on a weekend,
Come on everyone, let's be kind, and stop this, let's be their friend.
Let's take care of our animals, around the world today,
The gorillas, and the bears and elephants, let's help them some way;
These cruel trainers chain them up day and every night,
Let's help our friendly four footed creatures, with their plight.
Let's help our animals those fish in the sea everywhere,
Where the tv people on fishing programs don't seem to care;
That catching fish just to show us what they are like,
Then throw them back with sore mouths, let's say go take a hike.
