Don't Treat Mother Earth Like Dirt

Let’s all respect Mother Earth now
Let us work shoulder to shoulder
Treat her real kindly; Don’t use her blindly
Look after her as she grows older
Mother Earth has valleys that feed us
She has rivers and lakes that refresh us
Nothing’s insaner than it fail to sustain ‘er
Let’s show her we know that she’s precious

Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt
Erosion, pollution, they hurt
So swear by your best flannel shirt
You won’t treat Mother Earth like dirt
Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt

Mother Nature is very resilient
In the long run, she can get better
If the people and plants, the birds and the ants
Will all work together and let her
Mother Earth is a real special lady
Let’s show her we’re thinking about her
Let’s show her we care and tell her we swear
That we couldn’t live here without her

Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt
This is a real red alert
That is why I reassert
Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt
Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt

Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt
Don’t treat Mother Earth like dirt
