lyrics

Verse 1
we speak for the Earth
we speak for the trees
we speak for the air
and for the bumble and the honey bees
we speak for the land
and for the sacred seeds
and for the rain and for the sea
and all the future beings

Chorus
we wanna help the Earth
we wanna do our part
we wanna save the day
with all the lovin’ (wisdom/compassion) in our hearts
for these hearts know the way
and this love/wisdom/compassion
makes us strong
so we’ll climb a mountain high
and sing at the top of our lungs, oh
come on people
let’s wake up people
the time is now
come on people
let’s wake up people
the time is now

Verse 2
we’re gonna use our hands
and the wisdom we carry inside
and the love we’ve learned to share
and our fascinating minds
and the feelings that visit and teach
us how to experience everything
and our bodies that need to dance
and our voices that were born to sing



Bridge
the Earth
it’s connected to the trees
they’re connected to the air
it’s connected to the bees
they’re connected to the land
it’s connected to the seeds
they’re connected to the rain
it’s connected to the seas
they’re connected to the fish
they’re connected to the birds
they’re connected to the animals
they’re connected to the sun
we are not individual
we are not separate
we are interdependent
we are all one

Verse 3
so let’s be kind with our thoughts
kind with our words
kind with our actions
and kind to our world
for we know whatever we do
will have consequences for
the beautiful beings of the future
whom we already adore
so we’re gonna gather together
this Earthen family far and wide
step into our power
and do the work of our time oh

Final Chorus
come on people let’s wake up people the time is now
come on people let’s rise up people let’s do this now
come on people let’s wake up people the time is now
