The Care of the Earth

verse one:
We recycle. We have fun
Learning to harness the rays of the sun.
It feels good just to say,
“Look what we did for our planet today!”
Hip, hip, hooray!

chorus:
No job is too big, no action too small,
For the care of the Earth is the task of us all.
It’s everyone’s turn to answer the call,
For the care of the Earth is the task of us all.

verse two:
We plant flowers, watch them bloom.
We turn the lights off when we leave the room.
It’s a game we all play:
Look what we did for our planet today!
Hip, hip, hooray!

(repeat chorus)

bridge:
We remember plants and creatures live here, too.
We respect them—we protect them
In everything we do.

(repeat chorus)

INSECT

words and music by Dave Kinnoin

verse one:
What has six legs, two eyes, two antennae,
One head, a thorax… Hear me when I say
Hey, maybe wings, maybe not,
An abdomen, no bones…
What have we got?

chorus:
An insect.
That’s the buzz.
It’s no spider, and it never was.
A flyer or a crawler much smaller than I,
Like an ant, beetle, bumblebee, or butterfly.

verse two:
Well, it walks on my hand, strong and steady,
Flies off when it’s good and ready,
Soars, bores, wiggles, squirts,
Jumps with glee.
It gobbles up dead stuff.
What can it be?

(repeat chorus)

bridge:
Maybe up in the air, maybe under the ground—
It could be anywhere.
Maybe inside a tree, maybe under the rug.
Look in your bellybutton.
Do you see a bug?

(repeat chorus)

PLANT A SEED

words and music by Dave Kinnoin
©1998 Song Wizard Music (ASCAP)

I know what I want:
I want to plant a seed.
I have soil and water—
That’s all I need.
I poke a hole with my finger,
Drop the seed in,
Cover it up, pour the water,
And wear a big ol’ grin.

(repeat two times)

That grin is important
When you plant a seed.

WALK GENTLY ON THE EARTH

intro:
Take your shoes off.
Socks off, too.
We won’t need ’em
For what we’re gonna do…

verse one:
Walk gently on the Earth.
Smell every flower.
See how the little birds fly.
Hear every song the breeze brings along
When we walk gently on the Earth,
You and I.

verse two:
Walk gently on the Earth.
Taste every raindrop.
Touch every tree on our way.
Wonders are there for all hearts to share
When we walk gently on the Earth
Every day.

bridge:
Feel the ground for a minute.
Let your toes wiggle down in it.
Soft or hard, dry or wet,
When we’re all barefootin’,
We’re as close as we can get.

verse three:
Walk gently on the Earth.
Mountains and valleys,
Prairies and deserts worldwide.
Senses awake with each step we take
When we walk gently on the Earth
Side by side.

tag:
Walk gently on the Earth.
