        D               F#               Cm#              A
There is unrest in the forest; there is trouble with the trees
        E                 G       A       Bm
For the Maples want more sunlight and the Oaks ignore their pleas
    A                Bm                 G      D                A
The trouble with the Maples and they're quite convinced they're right
A                              Bm             G       D        A
They say the Oaks are just too lofty and they grab up all the light.
A                             Bm                G        D           A
But the Oaks can't help their feelings if they like the way they're made
          F#                             G               A
And they wonder why the Maples can't be happy in their shade
         D               F#              Cm#              A
There is trouble in the forest, and the creatures all have fled
        E             G          A        Bm
as the Maples scream Oppression and the Oaks just shake their heads
    A                Bm           G        D     A
So the Maples formed a union and demanded equal rights
   A                     Bm              G      D           A
These Oaks are just too greedy, we will make them give us light
    A               Bm                        G        D     A
Now there's no more Oak oppression, for they passed a noble law
          F#                        G                  A
And the trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw
