Lyrics

Eco Heroes

Written By: Julia Holland

We’re the kids of today, we got a lot to say
About what’s been goin on around here.
We know you’re real smart and if you look in your heart
You’ll hear our words loud and clear

We’re eco heroes
We’re the future
You can put on your cape and join us, too.
We’re eco heroes
Gotta get down to it
Cause there are so many things we all gotta do.

If you don’t know where to start, we’d like to help you out
We’d like to show you ways you can be green
It’s not the color of your skin that we’re talking about
It’s ways to help the world be clean

We’re eco heroes
We’re the future
You can put on your cape and join us, too.
We’re eco heroes
Gotta get down to it
Cause there are so many things we all gotta do.

Tell me one thing that you did today.
And any other thing you would like to say?
I brought my own bag to the grocery store
I’m never using plastic bags anymore.

I turned the water off when I brushed my teeth
I turned off the lights when I left the room
I kept my lunch bag didn’t throw it away
Cause I’m gonna use it another day

I picked up some garbage laying on the ground
I recycled plastic bottles that I had found
M mom picked me up
didn’t let the car run
I’m teaching her my eco ways one by one

A two minute shower, is all I need
We smelled his hair and we actually agreed
We’re not using soaps that will hurt the ocean
We’re shouting it out, we’re making a commotion

Mr. Grown Up

Written By: Julia Holland

Mr. Grown up, Dear Mr. Grown up
Mr. Grown up, Dear Mr. Grown up
Mr. Grown up, we’re writing this letter to you.

Mr. Grownup, we’ve got some things to say to you.
You’re always telling us kids what we’re supposed to do.
Like minding our manners
Doing our chores
Finishing our homework
And a whole lot more
And we’re hoping that you’re doing all these same things, too.

Mr. Grownup, we clean our room everyday
Put away our clothes and throw all our garbage away
We’re getting worried,
We gotta confess
Cause you’re leaving the world
A big old mess
And we don’t wanna have to clean up after you.

Mr. Grownup, this really is getting unfair
Stop the factories from blowing all that stuff in the air
If you drove your car less
Would it be so bad?
If you stopped using plastic
We’d be so glad
Please don’t leave us a world we have to repair.

I follow the rules, and I follow my heart
So won’t you please also do your part

Mr. Grownup, we’ve got a suggestion to make
Stop buying so much junk you probably won’t use anyway
Like all the dollar bottles
On the sale rack
Or that big ugly picture
Wrapped in bubble pack
It will all end up in the garbage dump some day

Ride A Bike

Written By: Julia Holland

We drive the car to school each day.
But there must be a better way
I’ve just been looking at the back of your head.
How bout some exercise instead?

I hear all this talk night and day
About all the money we gotta pay
About how much gas costs today
Well I got something to say

Chorus:
Let’s ride a bike down the street
Or take a little walk and see who we meet
And alternative energy source, I think,
Is our own two feet.

So put on your fancy running shoes
Won’t go to fast, just gonna cruise
We’ll save some money cause we won’t use gas
We got nothing to lose.

All these cars add to air pollution
But I think got a good solution
Let’s use the energy our body’s got
Cause we’ve got a lot.

Chorus:
Let’s ride a bike down the street
Or take a little walk and see who we meet
And alternative energy source, I think,
Is our own two feet.

Plastic Bottles

Written By: Julia Holland

I went with my mom. Yesterday, to the store
We ran out of water and we needed some more
I looked down the aisle and as far as I could see
Mountains of plastic was staring back at me

Seeing all this plastic made me stop and think
Why can’t we drink the water from the sink?
I started to worry so I turned to ask my mom
What happens to the plastic when the water is gone?

Where do the plastic bottles go?
And the bags that we get at the store?
They don’t go away
They don’t disappear
So why do we get more and more?

They end up in our rivers and in our land fills
They never decompose, they become giant hills
They’ll be floating in the ocean for the rest of our lives
We’ve got to stop it now so we all will survive

One thing to do is to use them again
Recycle them, or get your own tin.
Glass is made of sand papers made from trees
But plastic’s made of chemicals don’t forget that please.

Where do the plastic bottles go?
And the bags that we get at the store?
They don’t go away
They don’t disappear
So why do we get more and more?

Litter Bug

Written By: Julia Holland, Kim Ledoux

I like bugs, all kind of bugs
Big bugs, little bugs, bumpy or smooth
I like bug, any old bugs
Crawly bugs, flying bugs, stinging bugs, too.

But there’s just one bug that I can’t stand
It’s got two feet and it’s got two hands
It can be a woman, it can be a man
This is one bug we all have to ban

It’s a litter bug,
A dirty litter bug.
It’s a litter bug.
A dirty litter bug.

Are they crazy or just to lazy
To put trash in the garbage can
I see have finished fries, covered with flies
And litter all over the land

Oh, there’s just one bug that I can’t stand
It’s got two feet and it’s got two hands
It can be a woman, it can be a man
This is one bug we all have to ban

It’s a litter bug,
A dirty litter bug.
It’s a litter bug.
A dirty litter bug.

Litter in the park, litter on the beach
Litter at my school, litter on the street
Alright, I’ll pick it up. I’m not afraid
It could take that wrapper 30 years to degrade.

Don’t be a litter bug,
A dirty litter bug.
Don’t be a litter bug.
A dirty litter bug.

Wally The Worm

Written By: Julia Holland

I’m Wally the worm and I wiggle around
I’ve been living way down under the ground
Im’ slippy and slimy as everyone knows
And I can’t tell me head from my toes

Well, I recently got a new job
With my buddy, Bob
It’s important don’cha know
Cause we’re helping your garden grow

We’ve been working on a worm farm
And we eat all night and day
We’ve been working on a worm farm
Just to pass the time away
You must be wondering how
We’re so popular now.
Well here’s a little worm farm scoop:
It’s all about the poop.

There’s thousands of worms on this big old worm farm
It’s crowded and dark, but it’s got lots of charm
We never stop eating vegetarian meals
Like eggshells, coffee grounds and vegetable peels.

Well, we spend our whole lives eating waste
And we actually like the taste
We eat way more than we weigh
And we can eat it in less than a day.

We’ve been working on a worm farm
And we eat all night and day
We’ve been working on a worm farm
Just to pass the time away
You must be wondering how
We’re so popular now.
Well here’s a little worm farm scoop:
It’s all about the poop.

The 3 R's

Written By: Julia Holland, Carl Graves

Reduce it, Reuse it, Recycle Now.
Reduce it, Reuse it, we’re learning how.
Reduce it, Reuse it, Recycle Now.
Reduce it, Reuse it, we’re learning how.

Reduce it makes it small
Your trash that’s what its called
Don’t need to waste it all.
Reduce it now.

Just use it once again
One time or maybe ten
Just wash it out and then
Reuse it now.

Reduce it, Reuse it, Recycle Now.
Reduce it, Reuse it, we’re learning how.
Reduce it, Reuse it, Recycle Now.
Reduce it, Reuse it, we’re learning how.

We’re talking zero waste
Cause there’s no storage space
Inside our earth these days
Recycle now.

Let’s do a double take
Reduce the waste we make
Let’s give the earth a break
Recycle now.

Plant A Cactus

Written By: Julia Holland, Kim Ledoux

I’m just a kid, but I can help.
Nurse the earth right back to health
There’s lots of things that I can do
And I’ll share this one with you.

A drought’s when there’s no water to spare
There’s no rain and it’s brown everywhere
I’m saving water best as I can
And I’ve come up with this plan.

I’m gonna plant a cactus
I’m gonna plant a cactus
I’m gonna plant a cactus
You can plant one, too.

A cactus is even good to eat
It grows fruit that’s nice and sweet
It’s flowers that bloom sometimes
Just be careful of the pokey spines.

I can make a great garden grow
Don’t hafta rake and don’t hafta mow.
I feel good doin what I oughta
To save our precious water.

I’m gonna plant a cactus
I’m gonna plant a cactus
I’m gonna plant a cactus
You can plant one, too.

One Little Voice

Written By: Julia Holland

One little voice can make a big difference
One little voice can start a whole chain
One little voice can break down some fences
There’s power in one little name
One little voice can make a big difference
One little voice can start a whole chain
Whoa… one little voice

Once there was a single child
With many new ideas
She wanted to save the world somehow
She wanted the waters to be as
Healthy and clean, just like long ago
When the world shined and glistened
She talked about keeping the oceans clean
She hoped someone would listen.

It starts with one.
One little voice
To teach the whole world
To make a better choice
It only takes one
One good deed
To start another
And show others what the world really needs

Once there was a brave young boy
who had a million questions
He learned the world was getting too hot
It made a big impression
He said I’ll learn everything I can
About why this has occurred
I’ll change my ways and do my part
And try to spread the word

One little voice can make a big difference
One little voice can start a whole chain
One little voice can break down some fences
There’s power in one little name
One little voice can make a big difference
One little voice can start a whole chain
Whoa… one little voice
Whoa… One little voice

Celebrate

Written By: Julia Holland, Carl Graves

Everyday is a brand new day
We can start anew
Each new day there are many ways
To change our point of view.

It’s time to start all over
Time to wipe the slate all clean
Throw away our bad ol’ habits
And start a new routine

Celebrate!
We’re gonna celebrate a fresh new way
Throw your hands up in the air
Let’s celebrate a better day.

Don’cha worry bout past mistakes
You can sing a brand new tune.
You can let your heart create
You can let your colors bloom.

Everyday we get to get on up
And see a brand new sun.
With a smile on our face and a fresh new song
We can do what needs to get done.

Celebrate!
We’re gonna celebrate a fresh new way
Throw your hands up in the air
Let’s celebrate a better day

Celebrate !
We’re gonna celebrate a fresh new way
If you set yourself free to dance and play.
You’ll find you’ll have a better day
