Beautiful mother nature,
she looked at me with a smile on her face
then she started to cry,
she said: "why did my children forsake me?"
she felt like she was dying,
oh ungrateful children

when she was young she was beautiful and strong
the more children she had the more things went wrong
now she`s feeling old an dcold
and her heart doesn`t feel love anymore

beautiful mother nature,
she sat me down and told me to sing her song
maybe it would make her feel better,
maybe her children would sing along
and see the wrong we have done,
make amends to ment her heart

she still wouldn`t hate none of her children
no matter what cruel things they've done
she`ll always be there when her baby`s crying
she`s a mother she`s a mother you can depend on

beautiful mother nature,
she`s hopin`her children will love her again
like once she remember,
before skyscrapers and chemical plants
when she was all that we had,
before they polluted her sacred land

now her tears are falling like acid rain
and her voice sounds like earthquake
i had to beg her: "mother, please don`t leave
give another chance, i'll talk to the kids

beautiful mother nature she was my
beautiful mother nature still is my
beautiful mother nature she is my
beautiful mother nature still is my my my
