lyrics

Verse 1
this old earth's
been around awhile
she knows how to cry
she knows how to smile
she's happiest when we
care for her soil
and the water and air
that feed us all

Verse 2
this old earth
runs on her own time
how long does it take
for a mountain to grind
all the way back down
to a grain of sand
and then become
a mountain again

Chorus
every day
should be earth day
and every one
every daughter and son
will love her
like a mother
and cherish her
every single day
should be earth day!
every single day
should be earth day!
every single day
should be earth day!
every single day

Verse 3
this old earth
is home for all
the beasts and plants
stout and tall
some take root
others walk
some even fly
some even talk

Verse 4
we ride through space
upon her crust
never looking back
in earth we trust
she’s a ship afloat
in a sea of night
the burning sun
her guiding light

Chorus

Bridge
now is the moment
to open our eyes
and our minds and our hearts
and realize
the earth is our friend
we are never alone
the earth is our mother
the earth is our home
we must protect
our only earth
every action and intention
affirming her worth
let’s do no harm
and take good care
of every life
everyone
everything
everywhere...

Chorus
