Reduce Reuse Recycle (lyrics)

by Michael Ryther and William John Wisely, Jr.

Hello my name is Planet Earth I’m the one that you stand on
And if you jump into the air I’m the one that you land on
We’ve been friends through thin and thick
But all your garbage makes me sick

Reduce Reuse and Recycle
If you care for me I’ll care for you
Reduce Reuse and Recycle
Three ways you can live by the golden rule

Hello my name is Planet Earth I give you all the food you eat
I give you space to run around and hug you tight with gravity
But if you want a place to play
Think before you throw away

Reduce Reuse and Recycle
If you care for me I’ll care for you
Reduce Reuse and Recycle
Three ways you can live by the golden rule

Reduce means use less and less
Reuse means use that thing again
Recycle means turn your trash into treasure and the circle never ends
(Are you picking up what I’m laying down?!)

If you care for me I will always be there
If you care for me I will always be there
If you care for me I will always care for you!

Reduce Reuse and Recycle
If you care for me I’ll care for you
Reduce Reuse and Recycle
Three ways you can live by the golden rule

Reduce Reuse and Recycle
If you care for me I’ll care for you, you, you
Reduce Reuse and Recycle
Three ways you can live (reduce!)
Three ways you can live (reuse!)
Three ways you can live by the golden rule! (recycle!)
