This one was suggested by Brian (Beechnut). Write a song that would be suitable for Earth Day. The word "Earth" doesn't have to be in the hook but the song should focus on the planet. Good luck to you.

How about an oldie about droughts and changing weather patterns?

*********************************************************
There's A Drought Goin' On
(c) Emmrich/Nermark/Emmrich 2007

The grass is brown and the sky is clear
It feels like it hasn’t rained in nearly a year
The weatherman’s sad and the almanac spells doom
The cows are dying and the town’s like a tomb
Let’s go down to the pub, there’s nothing to do
Might as well go inside and drink a few

There’s a drought goin’ on and it’s sad to see
The town used to be an oasis, now you’d have to agree
But now the fishin’ hole is dry, it’s dry as a bone
There’s no help comin’ and we’re all alone
I guess it’s time to head out and try something new
But let’s have one for the road before we bid adieu

(Instrumental break)

Now it seems like we’re not the only place in dire straights
Weather patterns are changing across the United States
I don’t know if it’s El Nino or global warming
Some places are so dry while others are storming
I guess it’s a big mystery why we have this drought
But let’s get our fill before we all head on out

(Instrumental break)

Well The glaciers are breaking up and falling into the sea
I hear that the polar bears are not feeling too frisky
It seems like it might all come to an end this time
Neighbors got to get together to end this crime
Now you let me know how it all works out
I’m thirsty boys and it’s because of this drought.

There’s a drought goin’ on

TIME FOR A STAND (Part Of The Plan)
Words and Music by David Van Kleeck, 04/22/2010 7:15pm

Verse 1
While the Sun comes up in the morning sky
As long as there's life to be lived
Give thanks for all that we have, you and I,
And pray our Earth can forgive

Verse 2
Decades of abuse, policies of neglect
Those in power sitting idly by
Talking in circles while they casually reject
Common sense and the millions who cry

Chorus
that it's
Time For A Stand, take each others hand
and do all that each one of us can!
Don't give up, do not go gentle into that night
Giving up can't be part of the plan!

Verse 3
This Earth is not ours to do with as we please
We're stewards of all we survey
Turn and face what's gone wrong or it won't be long
that we're faced with the last of our days

Chorus
now it's
Time For A Stand, take each others hand
and do all that each one of us can!
Don't give up, do not go gentle into that night
Giving up can't be part of the plan!

Bridge
This Earth is the womb of Nature herself
She's looking to us and praying for help
One can't do it all, but many One's will not fall
Stand up if you still give a damn!

Chorus
it is
Time For A Stand, take each others hand
and do all that each one of us can!
Don't give up, do not go gentle into that night
Giving up can't be part of the plan!

Shucks Jean it's late and I'm tired. tired I wish I knew how to find a song challenge from before since I know I had one that I didn't make a copy of for my file and it was called "Around The World In Love". Infact I wish we could put all the old song Challenges back up from Challenge #1 to the ones we have now so it was all inclusive. smile Anyway it might be a stretch for Earth Day, but world and earth kind of go together so I think I would have reposted that one. I think if I remember correctly the challenge was one where we had to use the name of a country in a song?????? Nite nite for now.

I do have a song that names two planets would that be acceptable? Nah, that's too much of a stretch. Nite nite. sleep

Save Mother Earth
© words and music by C. Stewart ( April 22, 2010 )

Save the ocean and the air
Keep em clean and show ya care
Share your thoughts, with a stranger

Save the bunny and the hawk
And my unpolluted walk
Shield us all, from the danger

CHORUS...
Goldie Hawn still turns me on
Like the pretty sky
Everybody loves a sky that's blue
Here's what we all need to do....

Save Mother Earth, Save Mother Earth, Save Mother Earth for tomorrow

Save the forest, full of trees
Save the honey and the bees
Share your thoughts, with a stranger

Save the rivers and the stream
Mother earth don't need to scream
Shield her from all the danger

CHORUS...
Goldie Hawn still turns me on
Like the pretty sky
Everybody loves a sky that's blue
Here's what we all need to do...

Save Mother Earth, Save Mother Earth, Save Mother Earth for tomorrow

CHORUS...
Goldie Hawn still turns me on
Like the pretty sky
Everybody loves a sky that's blue
Here's what we all need to do...

Save Mother Earth, Save Mother Earth, Save Mother Earth for tomorrow

Hi Jean and Brian, Not sure if this new one will too much make sense or where I'll go with it if it's worth rewriting.


Til She Bore Man

(c) 2010 Geneva Keith


Verse 1
She was a goddess without form, she was void until she prayed,
That God would make her beautiful on day,
That he'd turn her inside out, release the elements she held,
Make her complete from within herself..


Verse 2
He is faithful to answer prayer, she would become volatile,
Within 7 days she'd become mother of all,
Her inner self would be exposed, as she shook and rearrainged,
She spewed from her desolate terrain..


Chorus
Then she breathed.... inhaled atmospheric gas,
Life began to grow, budding trees and plants,
As peaceful waters flowed, cloud forms drank,
Cried many rivers between continental land..

Then she danced.... for life sustaining light,
Spun around the sun, in harmonic day and night,
Higher life evolved, in sweet ecologic hands,
She recycled within herself til she bore man..


Verse 3
She was protective and giving, though he grew to pollute,
Wasted the land in destitution,
Mother Earth pleaded with him, life can be less forgiving,
Bring equilibrium my children..


Chorus
She breathed.... inhaled atmospheric gas,
Life began to grow, budding trees and plants,
As peaceful waters flowed, cloud forms drank,
Cried many rivers between continental land..

Then she danced.... for life sustaining light,
Spun around the sun, in harmonic day and night,
Higher life evolved, in sweet ecologic hands,
She recycled within herself til she bore man..


Bridge
She needs balance to dance on her axis,
Tip the scale both will soon die..
She feels it in her solar plexus, sees it in her face,
Eruption pangs and beauty fading..


Chorus
She breathed.... inhaled atmospheric gas,
Life began to grow, budding trees and plants,
As peaceful waters flowed, cloud forms drank,
Cried many rivers between continental land..

Then she danced.... for life sustaining light,
Spun around the sun, in harmonic day and night,
Higher life evolved, in sweet ecologic hands,
She recycled within herself til she bore man..

I didn't know about this challenge forum until Calvin sent me a message. No time for a new one, but this one may fit the challenge.

http://soundclick.com/share?songid=3280627

Dusk

Tree, sitting crow
Field, flowers grow
Sky, shining stars
Street, speeding cars

Deer, running free
Sand, turquoise sea
Pond, bullfrog's croak
Air, filled with smoke

Dusk slowly fades to black
A disturbing trend
Twilight is never coming back
Leading to the end

Snow, pure and white
Sun, eternal light
Moon, nighttime's crown
Lake, turning brown

Grass, morning dew
Love, me and you
Brook, rushing past
Earth, dieing fast

Dusk slowly fades to black
A disturbing trend
Twilight is never coming back
Leading to the end
Leading to the end

I got my piece written over the weekend. I believe I gave the title to Jean when I suggested the topic. I called it "Going Solar". The premise of my message is while we are seeing such efforts at going green, we still have a long, long way to go. So far we have, for example, refused to consider reducing auto dependency to end congestion on roads. And we cannot cointinue to build our way out of congestion.


GOING SOLAR

c4/24/2010 Brian Beecher


None of us started life
With resources and wealth
Now slowly but surely
Our world’s losing its health

It’s suffered losses and setbacks
In the most recent years
Now a time of recovery
Can avoid further fears

And the sooner we do it
The better its life will go
But our desire to do it
Has been moving too slow

Time to be going solar
To protect Mother Earth
It is a long-term venture
Someday proving its worth

If we ever get ready
To give waste a wider berth
Time to be going solar
To protect Mother Earth

Being torn between competing
Interests and demands
At the same time seeing panels
And wind farms across lands

Uncomfortable decisions
Will they be made today
Will we experience peril
Cause we won’t change our ways

Our main roads are congested
With the traffic so dense
Make our choice and
Be willing to accept consequence



Time to be going solar
To protect Mother Earth
It is a long-term venture
Someday proving its worth

If we ever get ready
To give waste a wide berth
Time to be going solar
To protect Mother Earth

Yeah, I've got an older one, too--my Elizabethan bluegrass tune "Dead Fishes," built around (and inspired by) a couple of couplets provided by John Voorpstiel. Link is www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_3904072 . Lyrics follow. This one actually got played on public television in Ashland, Oregon.

DEAD FISHES
--J. Wrabek

[THE RAP: A writer I know in Canada sent me a couple of couplets he’d written and asked if they could be incorporated into a song. Very Elizabethan-sounding stuff—ploughman out standing in his field, watching crops grow, and waiting for his reward in Heaven. Reminded me of my grandfather, who was a dirt farmer in upstate New York. Also brought back memories of my childhood in upstate New York, which was and probably still is a very polluted place. So this is sort of Elizabethan bluegrass. Oh, and it’s got dead animals in it—fishes, in this case…]

1.
In early spring, the fields were ripe with barley, oats and hay;
That’s what my grandpa told me, before he passed away;
Now, I ain’t never seen a barley, they sell oatmeal at the store,
And we don’t need any hay ‘cause there’s no horses any more.

CHORUS:
Hey, nonny, hey, nonny, where did you go?
“Went down to the river, where the pretty waters flow;
Reds, greens and yellows, passing out with the tide,
And I stood among the fishes and I watched ‘em while they died.”

2.
Grandpa called ‘em “signs of hope”—veggies in the dirt;
He said y’ had to weed ‘em, and it sounds like lots of work;
Now, the garden don’t grow anything—it comes from somewhere else—
But the dirt’s a pretty color—too bad about the smell.

CHORUS:
Hey, nonny, hey, nonny, where did you go?
“Went down to the river, where the pretty waters flow;
Reds, greens and yellows, passing out with the tide,
And I stood among the fishes and I watched ‘em while they died.”

3.
Grandpa talked of breezes that didn’t hurt your eyes,
And rain that didn’t burn the skin and make you stay inside;
He had pictures of some birds and bees, and other things that flied—
They sure were pretty ugly--not surprised they up and died.

CHORUS:
Hey, nonny, hey, nonny, where did you go?
“Went down to the river, where the pretty waters flow;
Reds, greens and yellows, passing out with the tide,
And I stood among the fishes and I watched ‘em while they died.”


4.
At night I think of Grandpa, talkin’ vegetables with God,
Peering down to see us through the ashes and the smog;
Saying, “Meet me up in Heaven, we’ve got barley, oats and hay”—
No one’s grown them things on earth since Grandpa passed away.

CHORUS:
Hey, nonny, hey, nonny, where did you go?
“Went down to the river, where the pretty waters flow;
Reds, greens and yellows, passing out with the tide,
And I stood among the fishes and I watched ‘em while they died.”

BURNING IN THE RAIN
Copyright 2009 YANN CAUSERET & BILL RENFREW
All rights reserved

VERSE 1
Sunday morning after coffee, we went fishing
To a place we used to hear the birds a-singing
The beer cans now deface
And mar this lovely place
Just yesterday this stream was fit for drinking

The planet's bones are aching
What future is in the making?

CHORUS
THERE'S POISON FALLING FROM THE SKY
BUT NO ONE'S RUSHING FOR THE BLAME
THE TRUTH IS (THAT) NOW WE CAN'T DENY
THAT YOU & I ARE BURNING IN THE RAIN
WE'RE BURNING IN THE RAIN

VERSE 2
When I meet with one of those rash, forgetful fellows
Once again degrading these pure and graceful meadows
(I say) "Hey, buddy, take the long view!
If you'd just look around you
You'd see, life's a gift so don't chance tomorrow!"

The planet's soul is aching
What future is in the making?

CHORUS
WITH POISON FALLING FROM THE SKY
AND NO ONE'S RUSHING FOR THE BLAME
THE TRUTH IS, NOW WE CAN'T DENY
THAT YOU & I ARE BURNING IN THE RAIN
I'M BURNING IN THE RAIN

Bridge
Can't you see? There's a black cloud
Up ahead, look up in the sky!
If the sun meets that black cloud
You can say farewell to the light

Pre-chorus
So let's roll our sleeves up together
And bring the odds back in our favor
Now we know we have a duty
To save the world's endangered beauty

CHORUS
THERE'S POISON FALLING FROM THE SKY
BUT NO ONE'S RUSHING FOR THE BLAME
THE TRUTH IS, NOW WE CAN'T DENY
THAT WE'RE ALL BURNING IN THE RAIN

WE'RE BURNING IN THE RAIN
WE'RE BURNING IN THE RAIN
THERE'S POISON IN THE SKY
AND THAT'S A TRUTH WE CAN'T DENY
WE'RE BURNING IN THE RAIN
WE'RE BURNING IN THE RAIN
YOU & I ARE BURNING IN THE RAIN, YEAH
WE'RE BURNING IN THE RAIN


"Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changin' / It's time we all reach out 4 something new" (Prince)

Thanks for posting, Yann. That was a concern in the 1960's too.
