LYRICS
Sun is shining…everything is so dry
Voices of nature sing for every living thing
Weather report says
it’s another record high
Voices of nature sing for every living thing
In the rainforest thirsty cedar trees sigh

CHORUS
Sing for rain, Sing for sunshine
Just enough at the right time
Voices of Nature sing,
for every living thing
Sing for snow on the mountains
Flocks of birds beyond counting
Voices of Nature sing,
for every living thing

Not enough water…people go to war
Do you hear meadowlarks
calling any more?
Disappearing wildlife…
what are we fighting for?

CHORUS

Drought on the prairies…
and in Afghanistan
Will we keep pumping oil…
as fast as we can?
Changing weather, making deserts…
turning soil into sand

CHORUS
