lyrics

ALL CREATURES DANCE
(words and music by Janna Marit)

Something’s up when all the birds
and creatures stirred without a word
And came around to you and me
-they said ‘it’s not our cup of tea, the way you’re livin’
can’t you see…

Then one little bird spoke his mind
‘I gotta say you’re not too kind
to those of us with feathers and fur
-You see I’d like to make a stir, if that’s what it takes
to find a cure..
and then they all sang,

High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
We all get wet

Then a family of honey bees
Buzzed and danced in a breeze
Said ‘Don’t forget you need us too
-‘cause we help grow lots of your food
can you see from our point of view…

that when you pollute the air, use pesticides
cut forests down, build far and wide
it makes it hard for us to just Be
-we all live together you see
him and her and them and you and me
and then they all sang…

High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
We all get wet

So won’t you take some time to look today
All creatures dance in different ways
They asked us to remember pleasethe
foxes, frogs, the mice, the honeybees
aand while you’re at it..
Go plant some trees
And then we all sang,

High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
Ooohhh
High above is the sun
It shines the same on everyone
We all feel the rain coming down upon our heads
We all get wet!
