Environmental Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Two of a Kind

This song is also available as an individual Vocal Download
or as Downloadable Right-Hand Lead Sheet with Chords.

Use both sides of the paper, there'll be twice as many trees
Don't leave the water running, save our lakes and rivers, please
Take only what you'll eat, whether it's cake or lima beans
Let's help to save the planet, so that we can live in peace

Trees are very pretty, and climbing them is fun
They're home to birds and shade from the sun
They've given us juicy fruit all throught the ages
and it's from them that we've made books filled with lots of pages

To make all this paper, it takes a lot of wood
So when you write or draw, you know you really should
use each piece of paper as much as you can
And then recycle it, so that you can use it again


Water's fun for swimming, or rowing with an oar,
or canoeing through the rapids, but even more -
We need it to survive, to clean with and to drink
So don't let it all just run down your sink!


Food is fun to eat, and it tastes good, too
Macaroni, peanut butter, chocolate cake and stew
Some kids go hungry, so don't waste those french fries
Make sure that your stomach is as big as your eyes!

Let's help to save the planet, so that we can live in peace.
