Lyrics

EARTHSONG by Sarah Goslee Reed and Jo Portzline's 1990 class at East School,
    Mount Vernon, Ohio                                
                        
Let's go fishin' where it's clean;            
We can walk along beside the stream.
When we get tired, we'll ride a horse.        
Or we might take our bikes of course.
Let the insects protect the plants:            
We don't need pesticides to kill the ants.        
We like those spiders and ladybugs            
Even though it's hard to give them hugs.

    CHORUS:
    Oh give me bees (bees, bees) in flowers and trees (trees, trees)
    A mountain stream (stream, stream) bubbling clean (clean, clean)
    There will be no zone without the ozone
    We've got to keep the earth healthy.

When we are walkin' we pick up cans;        
When we get home we wash our hands.
And on our bikes though it makes us pant,        
We take them all to the recycling plant.        
When we play outside we like the air        
To be squeaky clean, not merely fair.        
We want those songbirds up in the sky
To have a peaceful place to fly.            

    CHORUS:
    Oh give me bees (bees, bees) in flowers and trees (trees, trees)
    A mountain stream (stream, stream) bubbling clean (clean, clean)
    There will be no zone without the ozone
    We've got to keep the earth healthy.
                        
Stories we read and write because it's fun.        
We illustrate them, too, and when we're done,    
We use the front and back of every piece,        
So we don't waste paper, so we don't waste trees.
Each tree is special, no creature's too small.        
To keep our earth green we need them all.        
The plants need animals, animals need plants,    
For we are all earth's inhabitants.            

    CHORUS:
    Oh give me bees (bees, bees) in flowers and trees (trees, trees)
    A mountain stream (stream, stream) bubbling clean (clean, clean)
    There will be no zone without the ozone
    We've got to keep the earth healthy.
