Let's Save The Animals


Russell DaShiell has graciously allowed Little Woman Home for Animals to use his composition, "Let's Save The Animals" to honor Dr. Carlos Arreola and his lifelong pursuit of that goal. Russell has played with some of the most well-known rock and popular players of the last 50 years and was the lead guitarist on the world-wide best seller "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum. He has played alongside such legends as the Rolling Stones, the Doors, Chicago, the Moody Blues and many others. Russell is passionate about preserving the wonderful variety of animal life in our world for future generations, and his Foreverland music/video project is an extension of that passion. We thank Russell for his permission and for his dedication to animals everywhere.

A lion can be lazy, lyin’ in the sun all day
The tiger has stripes the leopard has spots
The tortoise is slow the cheetah’s not
And if they ever disappear we’ve got a lot to lose

Let’s save the animals - every one
We love the animals - they’re so much fun
Let’s save the animals - before the day is done
We love the animals - every one

An elephant never forgets so the books all say
Gorilla likes his banana peeled
Giraffes stand tall hyenas might steal
And if they ever disappear we’ll have a real bad day

Let’s save the animals - every one
We love the animals - they’re so much fun
Let’s save the animals - before the day is done
We love the animals - every one

The lions and the tigers won't mind
The lions and the tigers won't mind
Let’s save the animals
