ITS ABOUT THE WORLD WE LIVE IN AND WHAT WE'RE DOING TO IT

O' WONDEROUS THING WE CALL THE EARTH

WITH YOUR MOUNTAINS THAT REACH THE SKY

WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN YOUR WATERS GONE

AND THE TREES BEGIN TO DIE

O' WONDEROUS THING WE CALL THE EARTH

WITH YOUR OCEANS FAR AND WIDE

WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN YOUR TREES ARE GONE

AND THE ANIMALS HAVE NOWHERE TO HIDE

O' WONDEROUS THING WE CALL THE EARTH

WITH YOUR MOUNTAINS AND OCEANS AND TREES

WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN YOUR SKY IS GONE

AND WE CAN NO LONGER BREATH

O' WONDEROUS THING WE CALL THE EARTH

IT''S TIME WE TOOK A STAND

AND STOPPED USING YOU UP THE WAY WE HAVE

BEFORE THERES NO LONGER A THING, CALLED MAN

Very well done, and a good subject. I think and in the second to last line isn't needed though. I read it with skipping and and it still flows.
