What is the Price ?(Neil Cotton)

https://www.soundclick.com/html5/v4/player.cfm?songID=13813426

Christmas and birthdays celebrate the same.
Giving gifts you bought to play the game.
Are they as tradition decrees?
Or presents folks really need

Yes it drives the economy
But honestly

Thereís so much waste.
A disassembly line
Wrappings, and boxes
Toys break in no time
Letís face the truth whatís it worth
What is the price weíve put on Earth

Bake him a cake, write her a poem
Give them a kiss, donít tell show them
For kids sake be well aware
Gift the future show we care.

One footprint over the ecoline
Will it happen on our dime?

Thereís so much waste.
A disassembly line
Wrappings, and boxes
Toys break in no time
Letís face the truth whatís it worth
What is the price weíve put on Earth

What is the price weíve put on Earth

Amen, Neil!

For the rhyme, would it maybe be better to change...

Bake him a cake, write her a poem
Give them a kiss, donít tell show them

to...

Bake him a cake, write her a poem
Give them a kiss, donít tell show 'em
