Who Better Than Women

On International Woman's Day
who better than women to care for our planet?
a planet that's beginning to sob.
Who better than women to take care of our Earth…
since men have all but bungled the job!

Women create life…
So who better than women to take care of our air
To make sure there are no poisons in there
Who better than women to take care of our air
for theirs is the first breath that we share.

Women recognize the significance of water…
For nine months they keep us safe, protected…and warm.
So who better than women to take care of our water
for it is out of their water we're born.

Women are nurturers…
So who better than women to take care of our people…
our birds…our fish and our deer.
Who better than women to care for all life
and ever entity living here?

Women understand beauty…
For all women are as beautiful as they are grand
So who better than the women I ask you…
to cherish its beauty and take care of our land?

Yes, as we celebrate International Women's Day
who better than women to take care of our Planet
a planet that's beginning to sob…
for when Mother Earth is in need of mothering herself
who better than women to handle this job?

And perhaps if we're smart…there will come a time
not just on International Women's day
when we realize the wonder and marvel of women…
and we celebrate them…every day
