Michael Jackson – Part 3 – Earth Song

Posted: July 1, 2009 in music

My 2nd favorite Michael Jackson song….one that many people are not familiar with.  Of the 15 or so times I’ve lost my voice in the car singing along with his stuff, about half of those have been because of this song.  Enjoy.

What about sunrise, What about rain
What 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 to notice, The crying Earth the weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah

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, The crying Earth the weeping shores

Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaah

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

Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaaah

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 its wounds (What about us)
What about nature’s worth (ooo,ooo)
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 their trust (What about us)
What about crying whales (What about us)
We’re ravaging the seas (What about us)
What about forest trails (ooo, ooo)
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 (ooo, ooo)
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 was us)
What about death again (ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn

    Why did it have to be a US soldier in the tank? Actually, I’m pretty sure it was Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband – Chris something-or-other.
