SONG LYRICS

The Earth is our Mother (Copyright John Kerslake 2020)

The earth is our Mother,
and we are her daughters and sons
the earth is our Mother,
respect her and treat her like one

So often we stand on our own piece of land
and turn a blind eye to it all
the stripping of nature, the concrete pastures
the rivers of poison that flow

The earth is our Mother,
and we are her daughters and sons
The earth is our Mother,
respect her and treat her like one

When you were a child, growing as wild
as a flower in fields of green
and when you were sad, the trees made you glad
and a walk in the rain made you free

The earth is our Mother,
and we are her daughters and sons
the earth is our Mother,
respect her and treat her like one

Her breath is our life, at day and at night,
she’s tending what seeds we have sowed
she feeds us and clothes us, her timbers enfold us
when her sadness and anger explode

The earth is our Mother,
and we are her daughters and sons
the earth is our Mother,
respect her and treat her like one

DESCRIPTION
The song is about the earth and climate change and the need for us to wake up and take it seriously.
