LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
Oh, can you take care of her?
Oh, maybe you can spare her
Several moments of your consideration
Leading up to the final destination
Oh, the earth is calling out
I want to learn what it's all about but
Everything I read's global warming, going green
I don't know what all this means
But it seems to be saying

[Chorus]
Wake up America
We're all in this together
It's our home, so let's take care of it
You know that you want to
You know that you got to
Wake up America
Tomorrow becomes a new day
And everything you do matters
Yeah, everything you do matters in some way

[Verse 2]
Stand up, I'll try if you will
Wake up, it's not a fire drill
All she needs is a little attention
Can you give her just a little attention?
Oh, it's easy to look away
But it's getting harder day-by-day
Everything I read's global warming, going green
I don't know what all this means
But it seems to be saying
C'mon!

[Chorus]
Wake up America
We're all in this together
It's our home, so let's take care of it
You know that you want to
You know that you got to
Wake up America
Tomorrow becomes a new day
And everything you do matters
Yeah, everything you do matters in some way

[Bridge]
I know that you don't want to hear it
Especially coming from someone so young
But in the backseat, yeah, they wanna hear it (they wanna hear it)
So c'mon (turn it up)
C'mon (turn it up)
So c'mon (turn it up)

[Chorus]
Wake up America
We're all in this together
It's our home, so let's take care of it
You know that you want to
You know that you got to
Wake up America
Tomorrow becomes a new day
And everything you do matters
Yeah, everything you do matters in some way
