ANNIE DINERMAN: *LISTEN

"Earth And Sky"

(ANNIE DINERMAN)
July 2, 2011
Words and Music by Annie Dinerman
This song was inspired by a TV news show for young people which I saw just by chance in 2005. The news anchors, middle school aged boys and girls, were genuinely concerned about protecting our environment. This was the first time I became interested in the subject.

Jeff Olmsted and I produced this recording, which is really my songwriter demo. Jeff played all the instruments, some electronic and others acoustic. Ned Ginsburg helped me to add the animal sound effects.

"Earth And Sky" was recorded by The Broadway Kids, and also by Nancy LaMott. See my Discography page for links to hear/buy their CDs. Here are the song lyrics:
MY CHRISTMAS LIST IS SHORT.
THIS YEAR, I'M AIMING HIGH.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
IS THE EARTH AND SKY.

I DREAM OF FRESH, CLEAN AIR
WHERE SINGING BIRDS FLY BY.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
IS THE EARTH AND SKY.

PLEASE GIVE ME A CLEAR, BLUE OCEAN
WHERE LAUGHING DOLPHINS PLAY.
LET ME HAVE A COOL, GREEN FOREST
WHERE SLEEPY BEARS YAWN AT END OF DAY.

I'VE BEEN GOOD ALL YEAR LONG.
THE REST IS UP TO YOU.
WON'T YOU HELP TO MAKE MY
CHRISTMAS WISH COME TRUE?

ONE WISH FOR YOU AND ME
AND EV'RY BUTTERFLY.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
IS THE EARTH AND SKY.
