The byrds - Hungry planet

I'm a hungry planet, I had a youthful face
They were in a hurry to take a lot of space
They needed bombs and tungsten, ore and iron
So they climbed right down in and blew a lot of me right through.

I'm a hungry planet, over in the sky
The things they did to hurt me have gone by and by
Now here I am all alone, will they ever learn
Well I had to shake and quake and make their houses burn.

I'm a hungry planet, I had a blue sea
All the people kept chopping down all my finest trees
Poisoning my oxygen, digging in my skin
Takin' more out of my earth than they'll ever put there in.
I'm a hungry planet.
