Our Family Connection (IF YOU LOVE THIS PLANET)
Lyrics
OUR FAMILY CONNECTION

Verse 1
Tread softly on the earth
As the native children do
Tread softly on the earth
For the earth loves you
Tread softly on the earth
And you will feel
Our family connection

Verse 2
Tread softly on the earth
As the little critters do
Tread softly on the earth
For she loves them too
Tread softly on the earth
And you will feel
Our family connection

CHORUS
Sing softly to the Earth
For she will hear
Sing softly to the Earth
While you are here
Sing softly to the earth
And you will hear
Our family connection
Short Song Description:
Another Jeane Denny/Francine Jarry collaboration... we had met in the mid 90's at a Montreal spiritual conference and talked about writing positive songs for children... Jeane (living in England)sent the lyrics and as I sat looking at them holding my guitar, I began singing them as if it the melody were already written - a favorite of young school children - from the albums "It's Up To Me" & "Lullabies of Well-Being"
Story Behind the Song:
This song was recorded at the McGill University sound studio as a project by a graduating class student... Michele Ciment went on to become a well respected sound engineer in New York & London
