(Greg Tamblyn, Lance Cowan)

Somewhere deep in the dark jungle wild
Lives a brown South American child
And the jungle that raised him
Is a lifegiving home
To so many things wild and strong

And this child of the rainforest knows
He can live where the rainforest grows
But some nights he can see it burn
Pushing him farther away
So much is already gone

Like this child trying to stay alive
The whole world needs these trees to survive
Monkeys howl and parrots cry
And the jaguar is roaring
The balance of life hangs on
