(Spoken)
"First the earth cooled
Then the dinosaurs came
Some species survived
Most didn’t
Now life is as we know it on the planet."

I’ve seen a lot of things come and go
I’ve seen a lot of things stick around
Some people look to outer space
There are others that are earthly bound
We got rockers in the USA
We got soccer in Paraguay
We got Holland in wooden shoes
Sumo wrestlers reading Nippon news

Still there’s one thing that I found
There ain’t nothing like solid ground
Places to go in the universe
But you know it’s where we started first

On the planet
On the planet
On the planet

Once the world, they thought was flat
Now we know where the planet’s at
John Glenn went around in three
And now the shuttle takes you and me
By plane, boat or motor car
Land to ocean, skies to stars
Light years from the past
Till we know where we are at last

Still there’s one thing that I found
There ain’t nothing like solid ground
Rock and roll in the universe
But you know it’s where we started first



On the planet
On the planet
On the planet



(Spoken)
"Freeways
Troglodytes
Industrial dinosaurs
Techno evolution"

Still there’s one thing that I found
There ain’t nothing like solid ground
Places to go in the universe
But you know it’s where we started first

On the planet
On the planet
On the planet

On the planet
(Spoken) "We’ve been here a while"

On the planet
(Spoken) "Seems we’ve got our own style"

On the planet
(Spoken) "I’ve been lookin’ around, too"

On the planet

(Spoken) "There ain’t another one around like you babe"
On the planet

(Spoken) "I own the fastest car"
On the planet

(Spoken) "This dude plays the meanest guitar"
On the Planet

On the planet
(Spoken) "I ain’t seen nothin’ better out there"

On the Planet
(Spoken) "So let’s give our planet a little more care"

    General CommentThis song is generally about keeping a healty balance of exploring other worlds, yet making sure we do right by the one we live on. We can do both if we as race oh humans can make sure every one "on the planet" has access to food, water, education, and heath care.
