Beautiful World – Doug Allen, Feb. 2007

Do you ever think about this beautiful world
And the lucky orbit into which we’ve been hurled
Not too hot and not too cold
Water in the middle and ice on the poles
Lookin’ from a distance at the darker side
The continents are showing off their jewels tonight

It’s a beautiful world,
Do everything you can to make it last
It’s a beautiful world, fall in love, drink good beer,
And make your children laugh

We build our rockets and make our cars
But we can’t build planets and we can’t make stars
Six billion people, better make it seven
The experts say we’ll never make it to eleven
Earth don’t care if we perpetuate
But she’s given us permission to procreate

It’s a beautiful world,
Do everything you can to make it last
It’s a beautiful world, fall in love, drink good beer
And make your children laugh

We’re breakin’ down the ozone with aerosol cans
My fifth grade teacher poured Mercury in my hand
Glaciers come now glaciers go
Is it irreversible, hell who knows
Ain’t no cure for innocent fools
With military fever and petroleum flu

It’s a beautiful world,
Do everything you can to make it last
It’s a beautiful world, fall in love, drink good beer,
And make your children laugh
Fall in love, drink good beer,
And make your children laugh

Doug Allen Bellingham, Washington

Big Timber is my second recording, reflecting what life has been like for me in the northwest corner of Washington state. It was long in coming but I'm proud of it and The Union Wage. Please listen to some of the tracks - I hope you like it.
