Mother Nature’s Lament

This is another great song from Greg about getting the Planet back from the Powers that be, that are messing it up for the rest of us.  Think 7th Generation.  (The song has been re-titled from Have It Back to Mother Nature’s Lament.)

Mother Nature’s LamentGreg Hafner

When all the resources have been harvested, and the money’s made and spent,

And the things that are left over, don’t pay a decent percent.

When the grabbers have decided, they’ve used up what’s on earth,

Those who want a brighter future, would ask one favor first.

Can we have the planet back? Can we have the planet back?

Can we have the planet back? Can we have the planet back?

Clouds to be seen in a nature daydream,

Daylight, clean and bright.

The scent of sage on a warm summer day,

Stars we can still see at night.

Fresh mountain air that my grandson can share,

Birds that have something to sing.

Will there still be a stream, that is clear and pristine,

Water that we feel safe to drink?

Can we have the planet back? Can we have the planet back?

Can we have the planet back? Can we have the planet back?

On behalf of nature, can we have the planet back?

Please just leave us something, can we have the planet back?

The right don’t care about it, if no profit’s to be made.

If we get it while it’s living, perhaps it might be saved.

The crash of a wave, in an ocean side bay,

Without all the floating debris.

A fresh morning fog, not a toxic black smog,

A mystical forest of trees.

Still wander along, a pathway of stone,

Sprouts growing up in between.

Colors that thrive, and bring sunsets alive,

Yellows, and oranges, and greens.

Can we have the planet back? Can we have the planet back?

Can we have the planet back? Can we have the planet back?

On behalf of nature, can we have the planet back?

Please just leave us something, can we have the planet back?

The right don’t care about it, if no profit’s to be made.

If we get it while it’s living, perhaps it might be saved.
