Lyrics
The mockingbird and the nightingale,
The antelope and the great blue whale,
They have the right to live here on this earth,

Without a question to wonder why,
The benefactors of earth and sky,
A value beyond financial worth,

We have to try,
To keep the blue in the sky,
To keep the green in the trees,
The oceans clean and full of life,

We have to give,
To all the creatures who live,
Here in our midst,
Though we're blind to see,
The damage that we cannot allow,

Refrain:

The time is now,
The time is now,
To save the earth,
To save ourselves,
We may be dying,

The time is now,
The time is now,
The reasons why we don't awaken,
Mystifying,

The time is now,
The time is now,
The greatest height,
The darkest night,
We're now deciding,

The time is now,
The time is now,
Make up your minds,
There's no more time,
The time is now,
-

The Palestinian and the Jew,
The black and white and the red man too,
We all desire to live as one in peace,

But we must turn to the higher mind,
Give of ourselves and respond in kind,
Respecting the greatest and the least,

We have to try,
To reach on up to the sky,
Leave foolish judgment behind,
And lift this world to higher ground,

We have to live,
With different people and give,
To those who suffer,
Or we may one day find,
Our world has burned to the ground,

Refrain:

The time is now...
