"SAVE THE EARTH"                         

                            Written by Dotti Holmberg-Waddell           

 

VERSE 1:                 We need resources from our earth

                                    We need to find ways to preserve..

                                    The minerals, trees, pure water, blue sky

                                    The animals, birds and fish--or they will die.

  

CHORUS:                 Take a look around at what we're doing

Pollutionís growing fast and causing ruin

We need to take control, we cannot wait

Save the earth, get involved, start today.

 

VERSE 2:                 You can help by planting trees

They give back oxygen to you and me

Use products that won't harm the earth

Toxic wastes can only hurt.             


REPEAT CHORUS

 

VERSE 3:                 Don't dump waste into our water

            It poisons the fish and we all suffer

Recycle waste like papers and bottles

We need to have hope for our children of tomorrow.

 
"Ooh" ON CHORUS MELODY

 

VERSE 4:                 Conserve energy; electric and heating

The ozone layer has taken a beating

With too much burning of fossil fuels,

Acid rain is falling on me and you.

BRIDGE 1:                Global warming, the greenhouse effect;

                                    When the earth receives heat from the sun,

                                    It radiates heat back into space

                                    Creating a climate for everyone.

BRIDGE 2:                But when our toxic gases get trapped in the ozone layer,

                                    They weaken it and our protection from the sun's harmful rays...

                        Heating up our earth and creating an imbalance with nature--

                                    Let's do our part to correct the greenhouse effect.

"BAH, BAH, BAH, BAH" (3 TIMES)

  

VERSE 5:                 Help put the earth back into balance

Contribute ideas, take some action

Create clean energy, don't pollute

Caring for our earth is up to me and you.


REPEAT CHORUS THREE TIMES
     


ENDING (EVERYONE SPEAKING):
