A Little Bird Told Me
Dolphin, Whale, Green Life, Unite!
Stop the destruction, the terrible light of nuclear bombs and toxic
We all live on earth, we all need the trees, the natural ways, the sacred
(2nd time, sing sacred seeds)
All that God has made gives Life, but humans have wasted the land
strife, Taken the heritage God gives to all,
With greed they have raped, Love of money their fall
Put up greenhouses, instead of concrete
Low-cost housing, habitat neat
Solar power, force of wind
Make the rain pure to drink again
Had a dream the other night, Empty journal given, told to write
Heard this song from a little bird next day
Singing outside my window, teaching me how to pray
I have to take the journal, I have to grab a pen
To give a voice to all, 'Cause you can't hear their call
You who have no ears to hear the dolphin, whale and owl
You who have no eyes to see, what cars and machines have done to
I am your mother, the earth from whom you're made
Every atom, every molecule, all part of the dust, all sung the same
All interdependent, all species as great
"The least is the greatest" the child leads the way
'Cause love is not greedy, Love is not rude
Love does not take and waste and destroy
Love does not insist on his own way
Love conquers all
Pollute the waters, where will our children drink?
Pollute the soils, what will our children eat?
Who gave you the right to destroy all of life
'Till nothing is left of God's Beauty but blight?
The way it was sung in the beginning was RIGHT!
Learn to live again in a natural way
In tune with Nature, in harmony, not greed
The Native peoples knew the key
Walked a Sacred Way
Did not seek to possess the Earth
But used her abundance, giving thanks for all birth
Like dolphin song and eagle call
A little bird told me
"PRESERVE IT NOW FOR ALL"
