“O-o-oh, Sistren an' Bred'ren”


"O-o-oh, sistren an' bredren, Don't you think it is a sin For to go to peel potatoes An' to cas' away de skin? De skin feeds de pigs, An de pigs feeds you, O-o-oh, sistren an' bredren, Is not dat true?"


About as close as traditional music gets to an ecology song, when you think about it. - RBW
