Earth Day Songs


Sung to Mary Had a Little Lamb

Hear the cans go crunch, crunch crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch,
Hear the cans go crunch, crunch crunch,
Recycle for our earth.

Hear the paper go crinckle, crinckle, crinckle crinckle,crinckle,crinckle
Hear the paper go crinckle, crinckle, crinckle
Recycle for our earth.


Here’s a song I came across while student teaching a few years ago.

Pick It Up!!

(London Bridge)

Keep our water safe and clean

safe and clean

safe and clean

Don’t pollute your local stream

(say) Pick the trash up!

See the litter, pick it up

pick it up

pick it up

See the litter, pick it up

Don’t you be a litter bug!


One Earth

chorus: There’s only one earth and we share it with the whole world great and small.

Plants and creatures,

Land and sea and air

There’s only one earth for us all

There’s only one earth for us all

One Earth.

Mother Earth is our home she takes care of all life.

In a balance eternal and true.

(Chorus)

We have all that we need, we need all that have.

Mother Earth, is a family affair.

She is the house and the home that we share.

(chorus)
