The mountain side, the flower grows
The river side where the water flows
For ever
The jungle life of mystery
The wide and graceful history
Of life

Don't let it die
Don't let it die

The tiger's free, the kangaroo
It's up to me, and up to you

What we see is what we choose
What we keep and what we lose
Forever
The world is ours to tear apart
But what if it's too late to start again?

Don't let it die
Don't let it die
Or say goodbye...amen

(**break**)

Don't let it die
Don't let it die
Or say goodbye
In the end...
