Do You Hear the People Sing?

Original-Lied: Do You Hear the People Sing? (Les Misérables)

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of Mother Earth?
Many generations rising
for the future we deserve!
Temperatures are record high,
boiling the anger in our heart!
How can you all still deny
our world falls apart?

Will you join me in my fight?
Will you be strong and stand with me?
The time for change is right!
We must let fossil fuels be!

So stop drilling oil!
Leave the coal in the soil!
Think of me!

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of Mother Earth?
Many generations rising
for the future we deserve!
As the glaciers melt away,
so melts our patience for your lies
It is us who you betray
as our planet dies!

Will you give all you can give
so we can save our Mother Earth?
Will you act so we can live
to see the future we deserve?

So listen to me!
Try to live carbon-free!
Think of Earth!

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of Mother Earth?
Many generations rising
for the future we deserve!
Do you hear the people sing?
We are the final wake-up call!
Only if we act today
we can save us all!
