About the Artist

From J. P. Taylor:
Since I was a child I’ve been interested in and attracted to nature. And at an early age I became interested in music and began writing songs.

I became a teacher to make a difference in the world. Through my songs I’ve tried to help kids understand how people and the other living things in the world are interdependent – and share my passion for the Earth’s natural environment.

There are so many people all over the world who care about the Earth and are doing things to help our planet, little things and big things. More and more are joining us every day.

I have come to realize that my mission is to support and encourage these "Eco-Crusaders" and help spread the word about all they are doing, and all that still needs to be done, to save our planet.

I believe a song can change the world. A song can open eyes, minds, and hearts. Songs can inspire and encourage. The Earth needs people with passion to help us get back on track. My songs are for these people – looking forward, being positive, and working together.

Lyrics

Every living thing on the Earth has got its place
On this little blue planet that’s spinning around in space
Yeah, every living thing on the Earth is meant to be
From the birds in the sky, to the fish down in the sea

Eins, zwei, drei / uno, due, tre
Un, deux, trois / one, two, three

And we’re all singing for the Earth from Australia
To Asia and Africa
Antarctica and Europe and North and South America
And even out on the water the sailors
Are catching the notion
From Atlantic to Pacific and the Arctic and Indian Oceans

Ichi, ni, san / ahdeen, dvah, tree
Uno, dos, tres / one, two, three

Every living thing on the Earth has a role to play
As day turns to night, and night once again to day
Yeah, every living thing here on Earth needs a place to be
And deserves a chance to live, like you and me

Un, deux, trois / uno, due tre
Eins, zwei, drei / one, two, three

And we’re all singing for the Earth from Australia
To Asia and Africa
Antarctica and Europe and North and South America
And even out on the water the sailors
Are catching the notion
From Atlantic to Pacific and the Arctic and Indian Oceans

Ichi, ni, san / ahdeen, dvah, tree
Uno, dos, tres / one, two, three
Un, deux, trois / uno, due tre
Eins, zwei, drei / one, two, three
