Miley Cyrus – Wake Up America lyrics
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 you. 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.

    How can you say you hate the song. I mean we should be proud that americans are singin about this all these otha countries look down on us and we're finally coming up and here is a small part of this you don't have to like miley as a person but sum people have to admit they have 2 like her as a singer/songwriter. I personally like her as both and I'm a very proud american and I'm thatnkful some1 is finally doing about global warming.

    I love this song! I am a big Miley fan and I know many other people are too. Miley is becoming so because and such a rolemodel for so many young children. I really think she is clever for using her fame as a benifit. To get the word out about global warming in a diriction that hits the kids. They listen to her music all the time and learn the songs by heart. They learn the lyrics and can understand now whats going on in our world and every body needs to do their part even them. As young as they maybe 10, 12, 14, or even 5 or 6! They need to help and they can. Miley also brings up a good point " I know oyu don't want hear it ecspecially coming from someone so young. Adults don't care as much cuz they figure they die before anything deadly happens anyways! But at the rate we're going polution wise, they don't know! Plus shouldnt they care about the young generations? I can't say enough how much I love this song!

    I think that we should definetly clean up the earth. I know my fam does their part everyday. We compost alot and we clean up the side of the roads. We recycle every bottle we drink out of, too. I live in the country and it's truly beautiful where I live. If we don't pitch in. There will be no beautiful country! So wake up america cuz we're all in this together!

    Excuse me hannah miley 5 it might be a myth to you but being native american that's our way of saying the earth has helped us through times, food, water, shelter?! I think the song is saying we had better clean up our act in global warming or else one day we wont exsist! We have to work together and were all in this together if one goes down were all coming down too!

    You're the one to talk Miley! You're the one who needs to wake up to the fact that the world does not revolve around you. And the simple fact that you're not a good singer or actress. You're not pretty with or without makeup. And that there are people out there who deserve fame more than you, you little brat. And how the heck can you say that she's a good role model? Pole dancing, an almost nude photo, etc. And you say that's a thing kids should look up to?
    I'm sorry, but I'm not buying a cent of it. The rest of the world can stay hypnotized but I won't.

    This is by far the worst song I have ever heard. Realistically, who is going to go out and actually do something because of her poorly thought out, repetitive lyrics? It's cool that all of you little kids like her, and more power to you for having a hero, but if you're so intersted in the world, then stop typing about it on a forum and go do something. Make a change, do something useful. Miley Cyrus, does in fact, suck donkey d*k.

    Rachel, girlllfriend, you don't even know what your talking about because my moms a college professor and she teaches me how to talk and how to get people to listen to issues such as cruelty and jealousy lust and food prices so honestly if you have questions about getting people to losten just ask me because I can give you a scoop of ice cream like a scoop and I can just lead you to fame fortune and places such a sri lanka which youve probably never even heard of sooo try new foods (humus tabouli etc.) wear new clothes (spandex speedos) and love new things (geology and cheesy poofs).
    Xo love you!
