    Earth Day

    This Old Earth

    (to the tune of "This Old Man")

    This old earth
    Needs our help
    To stay fresh and clean and green
    With a pick it up; pitch it in; and throw it in the can--
    This old earth needs a helping hand!


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Everdyay is Earth Day

    Everyday is Earth Day,
    If it's cold or wet or hot
    Pitch in to save the planet
    It's the only one we've got.

    Save The Earth

    People everywhere
    breathe the same air,
    share the same seas,
    live together on the land.
    People everywhere
    who learn, plan,
    work, care,
    can
    save the earth.

    In Tune With Mother Nature

    If you listen for the songbirds
    As they greet the summer sun,
    And love the way the wind can make
    The trees sings just for fun;

    If you like to hear the ocean
    As it drums upon the shore,
    And imagine all the whales out there,
    And hope they'll sing some more;

    If you think of all the animals
    As players in a band,
    Each with a lovely tune to play,
    All needed on the land;

    And know that as a boy or girl
    A woman or a man
    You have a vital role to play
    In Mother Nature's plan;

    If you honor every living thing
    As a part of nature's treasure
    You're in tune with Mother Nature
    So let's all sing her song together.

    Earth Day

    I am the Earth
    And the Earth is me.
    Each blade of grass,
    Each honey tree,
    Each bit of mud,
    And stick and stone
    Is blood and muscle,
    Skin and bone.

    And just as I
    Need every bit
    Of me to make
    My body fit,
    So Earth needs
    Grass and stone and tree
    And things that grow here
    Naturally.

    That's why we
    Celebrate this day.
    That's why across
    The world we say:
    As long as life,
    As dear, as free,
    I am the Earth
    And the Earth is me.

    Jane Yolen

    Our Earth

    The Earth is ours to enjoy
    For every little girl and boy.
    But we must always be aware.
    That all its beauty we must share
    With all the children yet to come,
    Who want to laugh and play and run
    Around the trees and in the fields.

    So we must keep our planet free
    From messy trash and debris
    With air that's clean and fresh and clear
    For all to breathe from year to year.
    We must never ever abuse
    Our sweet Earth that's ours to use.

    Recycling In My Home

    (to the tune of "The Wheels On the Bus")

    Recycling in my home goes round and round,
    Round and round, round and round.
    Recycling in my home goes round and round,
    All through the day.

    Tie up the papers and take them back,
    Take them back, take them back.
    Tie up the papers and take them back,
    All through the day.

    Crush the cans and take them back.....
    Rinse the milk bottles and take them back....
    Save the glass and take it back......

    Working on the Trash

    (to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad")

    We've been working on RECYCLING All the trash we can,
    We've been working on recycling, It's a very simple plan,
    Separate your glass and paper,
    Separate your plastic and tin.
    Take the trash that you've recycled To your recycling bin!

    We've been working on REDUCING All the trash we can.
    We've been working on reducing It's a very simple plan.
    Don't go wasting any products, Use just exactly what you need.
    Don't buy things in extra wrapping, Reduce and you'll succeed!

    We've been working on REUSING All the trash we can.
    We've been working on reusing, It's a very simple plan.
    If it's a paper bag you're using, Don't use it once, use it twice!
    Give old clothes and toys to someone, To reuse them would be nice!

    Reduce, reuse, recycle words that we should know
    We have to save our planet so we can live and grow
    We may be only children but we can try you see
    And we can save our planet it starts with you and me!
    (sung to Itsy Bitsy Spider)
