People saving whales
And giving your thanks to our seas
My respect to the ones in the forest
Standing up for our old trees

Them giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'Cause there is freedom around us

We have everything we need and I will care for you
'Cause you care for me
And we all have opinions, some of them get through
But there's better people with more good to do, good to do

What I have could be a message
Or just some words from my heart
My respect to the ones making changes
For all the lives they'll give their all

Like giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'Cause there is freedom around us

We have everything we need and I will care for you
'Cause you cared for me
And we all have opinions, some of them get through
But there's better people with more good to do, good to do

When our world keeps spinning round and round it goes
Human Nature keeps spreading it's disease
And our children keep growing up with
What they know through what we teach and what they see

And so only a question of the time we have
And the lives that our children need
As they can only keep growing up with
What they know through what we teach and what they see

Like giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'Cause there is freedom around us

We have everything we need and I will care for you
'Cause you care for me
We all have opinions, some of them get through
But there's better people with more good to do, good to do
Oh good to do

    I think it sort of means be thankful for what you have becouse thare are people out thare who dont have the simple things in life. So we should stop thinking of ourselvs and be thankful and help those who dont have what they need,not what they want. Like a piece of bread to keep them surviving in this world of people who dont care.
