The Lyrics

Where has all the farmland gone, Indiana
Where has all the farmland gone, in Ohio
Where has all the farmland gone
Gone to suburbs, every one!
There's too many Wal-Marts, abandoned strip centers

Where has all the prairie gone, Oklahoma
Where has all the prairie gone, Minnesota
Where has all the prairie gone
Gone to suburbs, every one!
Asphalt smothers the soil, Asphalt smothers the soil

Where have all the wetlands gone, a distinction
Where have all the wetlands gone, near extinction
Where have all the wetlands gone
Gone to suburbs, every one!
Too many golf courses, too many golf courses

And where has all the desert gone, California
Where has all the desert gone, Arizona?
Where has all the desert gone
Gone to suburbs, every one!
Let’s kiss Lake Mead goodbye, Let’s kiss Lake Mead goodbye

And where have all the suburbs gone, to foreclosure
Where have all the suburbs gone, to foreclosure
Where have all the suburbs gone
Back to nature, every one!
When will they ever learn, oh when will they ever learn?

I liked this a lot, Tim. You followed a poignant ane relevant story line.

Thought-provoking parody. I enjoyed it all with 2 exceptions:
1. There can never be too many golf courses.
2. Since Lake Mead is the artificial result of Hoover Dam, its disappearance might not be mourned as much as the natural phenomena that this parody artfully eulogizes.
