THE BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN LION
From Brazil comes a monkey lion.
It`s the beautiful Golden Lion.
Why is this beautiful animal dying?
It`s because humans kill them.
But what for.
I wouldn`t want to eat one.
Maybe for clothing,
but other material will do.
We also cut to many trees
from their home.
They have no protection
as they roam.
It`s how our bufflo became extenct.
Money hungry men went over the brink.
Now there are laws of protection.
We can enjoy animals with our affection.
The lion is beautiful in his golden coat.
The hunters need an awakening jolt.
They need to find another profession.
Or, maybe they need a jail session.
