Lyrics

As I stood at my pump to draw some water from my well A young boy wondered what I did, I knew he couldn't tell When I tried to explain, he said, "No sir, that just can't be. I know where water comes from, and how it gets to me."

"My mama buys it by the case, down at the Walmart store In little plastic bottles filled with all we need and more." I said, "My friend, you're halfway right, but there's a missing part. Some water may wind up there, but that's never where it starts."

(spoken-- So I proceeded to tell him that) Water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from Mother Earth A gift of love, from up above, to satisfy your thirst You can wash your car; wash your dog, and grow most anything But water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring No, water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring

It starts up in the heavens and falls down to earth as rain Comes rushing from the mountain streams, fills rivers in its chain From lakes to mighty oceans, from sea to shining sea This flowing, growing natural gift pours out for you and me

We freeze it in the ice cubes that keep our lemonade cool We boil it cooking dinner in the evening after school We float and fish and splash it 'round to pass a summer day And send our boats a-cruising off along a blue highway.

(spoken-- So you can see that) Water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from Mother Earth A gift of love, from up above, to satisfy your thirst You can wash your clothes; wash your cat, and grow most anything But water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring No, water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring

Now here's something you may not know, but I swear it's a fact That water churns inside us, up and down and front to back Through our mouth and down our throat, 'round every bone and bend And when we've taken what we need, comes out the other end

There's water in the warm red blood that's flowing through our veins Water in our hearts and lungs, water in our brains You can bet we're soaking wet, a human cup of tea I'll take a drink of you, and you can take a drink of me

(spoken-- Here's lookin' at you, kid)
'Cause water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from Mother Earth A gift of love, from up above, to satisfy your thrust You can wash your face; wash your teeth, and grow most anything But water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring No, water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring

So now you know that water doesn't start out in the store And if we let it waste away, there won't be any more Mother nature tries her best, but if we tap her out We'll be dried up like raisins in one big eternal drought

The young boy nodded thoughtfully, said, "Now I know the facts; It drips and drops from mountaintops, from clouds and cataracts You've quenched my thirst for knowledge, it makes me stop and think So get that water pumpin' out, I'd really like a drink!"

(spoken-- Because now I know that) Water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from Mother Earth A gift of love, from up above, it'll satisfy your thirst You can wash your toys, girls and boys, and grow most anything But water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring No, water doesn't come from Walmart, it comes from the sacred spring
