Jamie Savage: Music

Thank the Earth

(Jamie Savage)
December 16, 2009
Music and Lyrics by Jamie Savage. CD: Back to Nature (2009)

This song was written by Jamie Savage for the K-12 students at Keene Valley Central School, and for anyone else who appreciates all that we get from Earth and the ecosystems it supports.

It sure is fun to be alive these days

There's no reason ever to be bored

We've got Ipods and MP3s

IPhones and Blackberries

Video games so true to life

High-def TVs hooked to satellites, well

Where does all this stuff come from?

Is it A. Walmart B. Target or C. None of the Above?

 

Chorus:

Well this stuff that we love, comes from the land

And the food that we eat, comes from animals and plants

Yeah the homes where we live, are built from stone and wood

Mother Earth provides it all, don't you think we should...

Thank the Earth? Respect the Earth? Protect the Earth? Thank the Earth!

 

It sure is fun to be alive these days

There's no reason ever to go hungry

We've got pizza pies and chicken wings

Foot-long subs and french-fried rings

Chocolate milk and soda pop

And home-cooked meals by Mom and Popp, well

Where does all this stuff come from?  

Is it A. Price Chopper  B. Stewarts or  C. None of the Above?

Chorus

 

It sure is fun to be alive these days

There's no reason ever to be bored

We've got bass boats with GPS

Skates and snowboards and space-aged sleds

Camping equipment, strong but light

Canoes and kayaks and mountain bikes, well

Where does all this stuff come from?

Is it A. Gander Mountain  B. EMS or  C. None of the Above?

Chorus
