Michael Jackson - Earth Song

MICHAEL JACKSON


Earth Song Lyrics

What about sunrise
What about rainWhat about all the things
That you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop this notice
This crying Earth this we make sure?

Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo

What have we done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth this we make sure?

Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo

Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can't even breathe
(What about us)
What about the bleeding Earth
(What about us)
Can't we feel it's wounds
(What about us)
What about nature's worth
(Oooh, oooh)
It's our planet's womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
We've turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost thier trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
We're ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(Oooh, oooh)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can't we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can't you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(Oooh, oooh)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about babies
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What about us)
What about death again
(Oooh, oooh)
Do we give a damn

Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo
Aaaaaaaaah, Oooooo

I am Michaels biggest fan. i relate to him in many ways. i believe that everyone who doesn't care about him are the ones destroying the world. my favorite songs of his are they don't care about us, billie jean, and earth song. michael, i am starting where you left off. i am performing your songs in my neighborhood to have my generation and future of the world what we do to the forest is wrong. thank you michael.

Who wouldn't be touched by the message of this song? Shall we just watch our world suffer due to man's negligence and indifference? Let's save mother earth. God bless you Michael for writing this song

The meaning of the name Michael is god like, in my eyes he was another depiction of god, his songs were his bible and this song means so much to the creation of his bible, I love this song so much xxx

Instead of saying how much you love MJ, care more about what he cared - Peace, Planet and the cring children, etc.
