"Mother Earth" as written by and Laura Nyro....
ooh
I’d like to sing you a new song called ‘Mother Earth.’
deep brown earth
moon in the branches
I've gone where
nightingales sing
I love him, body and soul
night songs pierce my ear
and ring

do you believe
in Mother Earth?
she will hear you
the earth smells of her
and God is her lover
she will hear you
with wisdom and love

life, I know
is the natural blues
natural like earth and God above
first step to heaven
is to pay your dues
roots and meanings flyin’ love

do you believe
in Mother Earth?
she will hear you
the earth smells of her
and God is her lover
she will hear you
with wisdom and love

bless the train
on the cold snowy winter track
the wind takes you back home
and you may go
to the northwest passage
but never from your heart
must you roam

do you believe
in Mother Earth, child?
she will hear you
the earth smells of her
and God is her lover
she will hear you
with wisdom and love

deep brown earth
moon in my branches
I've gone where
nightingales sing

ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh

peace
and joy to the world
