PHENOMENAL WORLD


I haven’t lived very long
But I suppose long enough,
To have seen many curious faces
While visiting strange exotic places,
Along the way asking “what’s it all for?”
And though there’s still so much to explore
I believe I can rightfully say:
We live on a most unusual planet.

(chorus)
In fact, it’s a Phenomenal World
That we live in
Oh yes, it’s a Phenomenal World
That we die in
But you don’t have to trust me
I just hope that you’ll see
That it’s a Phenomenal World


Think about all the life forms that have grown
And the discoveries science has shown
Or the great moments history has known
And how many mysteries are still unknown


It’s so thrilling just feel my heart pound
Quite a ride we’re on spinning around
So search the sky and under the ground
For something wonderful is sure to be found


On this Phenomenal World
That we live in
Oh yes, it’s Phenomenal World
That we die in
But you don’t have to trust me,
I just hope that you’ll see
That it’s a Phenomenal World


Never before have we known so much or had access to it all
We really did bite the apple from tree of knowledge tall
It may have cost us dearly, but I think it was worth the fall
For we’re the kings and the queens of the earth and everything else is so damn small


So let nature bow before us as we dominate the land
Submit to our power and industry and give in to every demand
The right was given to us by our God for we are very grand
Anything becomes possible when life is ours to command


We’ve taken control of the elements and domesticated the beasts
They work hard for our bidding and then become our next feast
Disease and famine can’t get us down, not for very long at least
And our children are very special just look how the population’s increased!


Take a moment of consideration and then pick yourself a fight
There are so many wars to join to prove that you’re right
Go blow something up and make and astounding sight
We have the superiority but how well do you sleep at night?


Oh my, it’s a Phenomenal World
That we live in
Oh yes, it’s Phenomenal World
That we die in
But you don’t have to trust me,
I just hope that you’ll see
That it’s a Phenomenal World


I feel sorry for you if you think this song got too morose
For life is rarely pretty it’s usually quite gross
And it won’t be getting easier so better stay on your toes
If you can’t handle these feelings you might as well be comatose!


Oh but life can be gentle, in fact, sometimes even sweet,
They say what goes around comes around now isn’t that neat?
So be good to one and all and everything you meet,
And if that doesn’t work for you then have yourself a seat…


And enjoy the ride, for what it’s worth
And cherish these moments on dear Mother Earth!

Oh my, it’s a Phenomenal World
That we live in
Oh yes, it’s Phenomenal World
That we die in
But you don’t have to trust me,
I just hope that you’ll see
That it’s a Phenomenal World
