This World

(Written for Earth Day 2008. This world is the most beautiful world in the world. Wouldn’t you agree?)

Everybody says she’s pretty as a picture
Everybody knows she’s one of a kind
Everywhere I go, I see more of her
Everywhere I look, she’s looking fine

North Pole, South Pole, East or West
She’s the planet I love the best
Mother Earth
So I say
Hey, this world
This world is the most beautiful world in the world

She can shine like a rainbow when she’s happy
Or cry like a waterfall when she’s sad
If she’s scared she’s gonna shake like an earthquake
Or howl like a hurricane when she’s mad

Oh, from the highest mountain top
Oh, to the bottom of the deep blue sea
