She asked me maybe
I would share her sorrow
About the men that tried to treat her wrong

Though just a baby
A waiting her tomorrow
It's rock me baby, rock me baby
All night long

She needs an answer to her confusion
Someone to guide her with tenderness
But if she's asking for a solution
All that she gets
You know it's something like this

Don't know where we come from
Don't know where we're going to
But if all of this should have a reason
We would be the last to know

So let's just hope there is a promised land
Hang on till then as best you can
Everybody's ills you know it

Fills her with compassion
That's why she tries
To save the world alone

She helps the needy in her own fashion
And tries to give them all her own
Rock me baby, rock me baby
All night long

    My InterpretationBrilliant analysis Doug, but it's not simply about "Mother Nature"...there's more to it than that. This is why John Kay was such a master songwriter...the song had layers. Upon its simplest layer it's about a young, naive girl entering into the world of men and looking for at least "one good man" to step forward out of the bunch and guide her with Love and respect. However, there's also your much larger layer that references Mother Nature in her infancy with mankind. But ultimately, the song is at an even deeper level...and that is the SACRED FEMININE. The Earth, and many of man's most ancient realms were guided thru the wisdom of the sacred feminine (Ancient Egypt and Atlantis, if you are prepared to believe this truth). But after the great flood (approx. 10,000 years ago) the Male energy has slowly taken full control of this wondrous Earth to her full detriment.

    John Kay was simply saying that what all of us needed then (even MORE relevant today) was a shift back to the Sacred Feminine, starting by listening and loving the female energy that is crying out for SINCERITY, COMPASSION, TOLERANCE and LOVE...all the things that this Corporate-owned world is not...

    Again, great analysis!
