Video of the song Losing Nature to illustrate and promote its meaning and theme. This is an environmental song that addresses the really quite rapid destruction of wild and natural areas of the Earth's surface and the relentless expansion of urbanisation and parallel loss of flora and fauna which cannot be replaced, and the threat to the world's climatic balance which once overturned will bring disaster to life on this planet.

Losing Nature




by Peter Brown, Markiza Halim and Chong Sheau Ching c. Lemang Music




My daughter has been coming here since she was 2 years old
Thousands now will miss it, if the truth be told




Thousands who cannot afford those club facilities




Who value the fresh air, the trees, the quiet and the peace




Then one day a rich tycoon who bought the land for cheap
Managed to convert its use so profits he could reap




He sold it to a developer who sent surveyors round




They fenced it off with ribbons so it was out of bounds




chorus Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily They fence it off and build for those who live in luxury Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily In times far off the survivors will write our history




The monkeys now are refugees, they make an angry noise
My daughter says “no wonder - there's no food for their girls and boys”
One day someone will be attacked - and then they'll come with guns
Then there'll be no more monkeys to entertain the young 'uns

chorus Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily They fence it off and build for those who live in luxury Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily In times far off the survivors will write our history

Instrumental verse

And so the politicians make promises and vows




But nothing ever changes just the temperature grows
Flash floods and water shortage and greenhouse emissions
And when election comes we ask, “What of future visions?”

chorus Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily They fence it off and build for those who live in luxury Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily In times far off the survivors will write our history Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily They fence it off and build for those who live in luxury Losing Nature, Losing Nature, lose it so easily In times far off the survivors will write our history
