Happy Planet

Here’s a song to a happy planet

Raised with fire on stony granite

Her seas so wide and full with nature

Her mountains high for us to wonder

She dances gracefully to a tune

Spinning with the stary moon

She does it with the greatest pleasure

Through the warm and stormy weather

I know her fate and I feel her trust

She smiles at me when I turn to dust

We need her laughter and her cheer

To save us from the saddest years

She contented before us men were here

She’ll smile for you when you are near

She smiled when mankind dropped the bomb

And she’ll smile at us when we are gone
