Mother Earth, mother Earth, will you shut up please?
Stop telling me your problems and your tragedies
I know you’re having troubles, you suffer day and night
But we are your children. We have all the rights
You complain about the felling of forests and of trees
But we are only decorating you with buildings and diseases
You complain about the smog, polluted water and land
But we prefer it the way it is, just try and understand
Look at your Sun and Moon, they never do complain
They’re idle and stationary, why don’t you learn from them?
We are happy as we stand. We never make a fuss
Have I ever kvetched that you’re not big enough for us?
So quit your whining and your sobbing and continue to move around
We’ll treat you as we may please till we burn you to the ground
So quit your whining and your sobbing and quit your petty bother
If we’re ever fed up with you, we’ll find another mother
