Birds flyin' high in search of a clear blue sky
While they're choppin' down the trees below them
Come take a stand and help us save the land
Let's go out and try to make it better
And maybe we can make the world a whole lot brighter
We can make the load a little lighter
Everybody has to try together
Don't you know it's now or never

Meadows once green are few and far between
And the rivers might run brown tomorrow
God made the land for each and every man
So we must do all we can to save it
And maybe we can make the world a whole lot brighter
We can make the load a little lighter
Everybody has to try together
Don't you know it's now or never
