Oh,
Can you take care of her
Oh,
Maybe you can spare her
Several moments
Of your consideration
Leading up
To the final destination
Oh,
The Earth is calling out
I wanna learn
What it's all about

But everything I read
global warming
Going green
I don't know
What all this means
But it seems
To be saying

Wake up America
We're all
In this together
It's our home
So let's take care of it
You know that you want to
You know that you got to
To wake up America

Tomorrow
Becomes a new day
And everything you do
Matters
Yeah
Everything you do
Matters
In some way

Stand up
I'll try if you will
Wake up
It's not a fire drill

All she needs
Is a little attention
Can you give her
Just a little attention?

Uh, oh
It's easy to look away
But it's getting harder
Day by day

Everything I read
Is global warming
Going green
I don't know
What all this means
But it seems
To be saying

Wake up America
We're all
In this together
It's our home
So let's take care of it
You know that you want to
You know that you got to
To wake up America

Tomorrow
Becomes a new day
And everything you do
Matters
Yeah
Everything you do
Matters in some way

I know that you
Don't want to hear it
Especially coming
From someone so young

But in the back seat
Yeah
They want to hear it
(They want to hear it)

So come on
(Turn it up)
Come on
(Turn it up)
So come on
(Turn it up)
Wake up America
We're all
In this together
It's our home
So let's take care of it
You know that you want to
You know that you got to
Wake up America
Tomorrow
Becomes a new day
And everything you do
Matters
Yeah
Everything you do
Matters in some way

    Hello! I think these is a very nice song! These is one of Miley's good songs. It's about American people, how good they are between them and the peace in U.S.
    First of all don't start and say things like "It's a horible song" "Go kill yourself" or thing like these. Look at you guys you are American and you have to be very proud with these song, I mea look at other countrys and then start crithing the song.

    I love this song and it's super cool ! American's have to be very proud that Miley sings these song and her dad made these song and the lyrics are about American people I mean look at Romanians people ... everybody in that country does whatever he wants without looking in the back to see if others agree with them. I mean in Romania your walking on the street and somebody comes to you and starts to swear you. American people took in theire back to see if what they do is good. So guys live these song alone
