lyrics

Heed this child
She is a blessing
Loves this Earth
We have been messing
Pure of heart
And true to her words
She has started
To change the world
Soul afire
Hair in braids
Profit parasites
Are afraid
Still quite small
But standing tall
She’s got it all
May she never fall

Greta T
Fights for me
Greta T
Bless you honey
Greta the great
I pray you’re not too late
Greta the strong
I know you’re not wrong


Greta I believe you
Bless what you do
Greta we need you
To speak the truth
Greta is rising
And it’s not surprising
She’s not compromising
She’s just inspiring

Some call her a puppet
Of interests vile
Some believe
She’s just a child
Some think we should be
Free to waste
That the problem
Is not the human race
That the climate
Has always changed
And our mass consumption
Does not rearrange
What’s in our air
What’s in our seas
What’s in our land
They do not believe



Greta I believe you
Bless what you do
Greta we need you
To speak the truth
Greta is rising
And it’s not surprising
She’s not compromising
She’s just inspiring

Greta T
Fights for me
Greta T
Bless you honey
Greta the great
I pray you’re not too late
Greta the strong
I know you’re not wrong

Stand beside her, heed her call
She’s trying so hard to save us all
Let her voice be heard by billions
Come on now you all civilians
If you want a future clean
Put your might behind this teen
Putting our children’s future first
Greta Thunberg saves the Earth
