SONG LYRICS

Are You Gettin’ Ready

There are people who know how to do.
There are people who are talkin’ true.
There are people askin’ you
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Some people are sleeping,
but dreamin’ ain’t enough,
action is needed, so better move your butt.
Tellin’ piles of shit will never say much.
Well then: “Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

The weather is changin’, the atmosphere too.
For business, I tell you, polar ice is no taboo.
They melt it down, for gettin’ oil and more.
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

What can I say about bombs and the poor
that you do not already know?
It is time to change the consciousness:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Man must change, everyone knows,
otherwise earth will change us all.
There’s no way out except to do.
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Look out for the people who already do.
Look out for the people who know what to do.
Look out for the future and don’t be a fool:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

The power of earth is limitless, you know.
She can change it all, even make us go.
Better it is to listen to her call:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Her resources we can use for the wonderful
if we turn to union and end all war.
New energies are there in our soul:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Greatness it is that we need right now,
greatness and courage to change it all.
Greatness and courage for mighty love:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Together, I tell you, we can be strong.
Together, I tell you, to reach what we want:
The United States of Planet Earth –
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Tomorrow shall be the time of love,
the time when we live for peace and hope,
the time for nature to regain her youth:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”

Sweet is the vision and I open my eyes,
you are near to me, the breathin’ life.
Earth is your mother and it is mine:
“Are you gettin’ ready? Are you gettin’ ready?”
