The Lyrics

I connect this song in my mind with Earth Day because it was Earth Day when I first heard it
Sometimes we see it greener than it is
We’ll go and hug a tree
And ignore all trees being bulldozed
Water from the hose
Can be used too much, so go turn it off

Sometimes I wonder if we really can commune
With nature while we’re clothed
If you streak through forests of trees
Don’t get stung by bees
And watch for poison oak and ivy while you’re running

That’s what Earth Day’s for
To help remember
That’s what Earth Day’s for
It’s not in December

Melt all the ice cubes
And recycle plastic tubes
Can’t do that by apartments
That’s what Earth Day’s for I said

Sometimes I see trash and I don’t know what to say
When it’s washed away to the river
Don’t put stuff down storm drains
To do that is insane
And prevent forest fires or Smokey beats you up

That’s what Earth Day’s for
Make it every day
That’s what Earth Day’s for
Don’t let it get away

It’s for the squirrels
Hold your nose near the landfill
Birds will walk past cars once more
But then That’s what Earth Day’s for

Just watch out for birds pooping
And try not to make roadkill

That’s what Earth Day’s for
For deer by the road
That’s what Earth Day’s for
The Earth is our abode

Go trim your hedges
And sit down on park benches
Jerks move those benches near them
Oh no they are not your friends

That’s what Earth Day’s for
Randomly yell “fore”
Sunburn makes you sore

Tan all of your bod
Oh today is really hot
Global warming sucks for sure
But then That’s what Earth Day’s for

That’s what Earth Day’s for
Though many it bores
Open your screen door
Nothing else compares now
Raining on your hair now
