Earth Day

There's no life on the moon
There's no life up on Mars
So let's take care of this lovely world of ours
Let's make the waters green again
And the fish smile when they swim
For if we lose this world of ours
There's nowhere else to go

What, you don't know this song? This is one we learned way back in, I think, sixth grade chorus. These are the only lines I remember, and they just popped into my head as I was preparing to post this photo, taken last month, and I'm not one hundred percent on the last line. I can think of only one person who occasionally reads this blog who might remember it. You'll recognize her by the loud groan ringing through cyberspace. *grin*

Wow, I remember that song! But sorry, can't help you with the lyrics - all I've got going through my head right now is "Fifty nifty United States from thirteen original colonies..."

NOOOOOO! Please don't get the state song in my head!

I had a feeling you might remember the moon song, if only a little bit. *BCG*

I wonder if Mrs. Reilly wrote the Mars one herself? I tried googling the lyrics and came up with nothing.

Actually, I did find reference to a song of that title by The Mills Brothers (1972), but no lyrics.
