The Earth Has Had Enough
for the students of Stanton Elementary in Stanton, KY
© 2018 Mitch Barrett, Redbird Mandala Music, BMI

We all live on a little blue pearl
Floating around the sun
There’s nowhere to go, this is our world
This is the only one
We’ve looked all around the universe
Seeking to find a new earth
It’s all dark matter, and it really doesn’t matter
We’re all stardust at birth

Somebody send out an S.O.S.
We need a guardian angel now
St. Peter’s stuck at the traffic light
Gabriel, won’t you blow your horn loud
Somebody call 9-1-1
We’ve fallen and we can’t get up
Houston, we have a problem
I think the earth has had enough

So here we are, you and I
Along with everything that breathes
It’s a great big world and a little bitty us
But we got everything we need
Okay, okay, okay, you say
But what are we supposed to do?
Can somebody answer this question, please?
Does anybody have a clue?

We didn’t heed the warning
Now the time has come to choose
The future’s in our hands, still time to change our plans
There’s way too much left to lose
I think I’ll go out to my garden
Growing food is good for my health
Somebody once said, and it stuck in my head
If you want to change the world, change yourself
