Earthsong

From the album Chris Moose Holidays Buy Now

- listen to the song of life!

EARTHSONG

Our song starts with a child’s birth   

We’re taught that people rule the Earth

But ev’ry creature has a song

That we can’t hear if we’re too strong

 

For those with paws and fins and wings

Each knows the song it’s family sings

The wind, the river, trees and clouds

Cannot be heard if we’re too loud!!

 

Cho:  All together, open hearts      

In harmony we sing our parts    

When all of Nature sings along    

Then we hear the Earthsong   

 

Rabbit, Clover, Owl and Bee, Redtail Hawk and Great Salt Sea

Mountain Lion, Thunderstorm, Redwood, Cactus, Rice and

     Corn,

Raven, Spider, Crab and Snail, Catfish, Heron, Pond and

     Whale

Pine Tree, Jaybird, Wind, and Moose, Bear and Otter, Wolf

     and Goose

 

Kangaroo and Manatee, Cobra, Shark and Chimpanzee

Butterfly, Volcano, Moss, Turtle, Beetle, Albatross

Dove, Giraffe, Gazelle, Baboon, Snake, Gorilla, Mouse,

     Raccoon

Rose and Tiger, Porpoise, Ant, Buffalo and Elephant

 

The promise that a sunrise brings

Is one more chance to dance and sing

The child helps the grown-up see

We need more balance musically

So ev’ry creature, raise your voice

Each holy day we all rejoice

And celebrate how we survive

The Earthsong is the song of life.
