There'll come a time
When you may want just a little more
Societys luxuries are not what you had in store.
They offer no security for your soul.
So Mother Earth is what you need
Maybe this is what you be looking for.

Oh Mother Earth
Got to respect her
She's all around me
Under my feet you know I got to remember,
Mother Earth
Got to defend her.
And to defend her I must respect myself
You know I got to remember
I must remember.

There'll come a time
When we can't take anymore
When the air that we breathe
Has left us rotten to the core
And the water that we drink
You know it's no good to drink any more
Do we have to let it go,
Do we have to let it go this far?

Beautiful moon shining over the ocean
Don't you know I'll do it all for you.
Give up my days and my tomorrows
If the words I singing are not true.
Cause in this world and the others
Not a thing that I wouldn't do
Mother Earth your in my soul.
It's my blood your running through.

Must respect myself to respect her,
Must respect myself to Defend her.
Must respect myself to respect her.
Must respect myself.
