Why Can’t Every Day Be Earth Day? (lyrics)

By Michael Ryther and William John Wisely, Jr.

There’s only one day to care for all creatures large and small
Only one day to repair the blue globe that unites us all
Just one day to think up solutions
Only one day to create less pollution
Why only one day to show our love to the planet we adore
We want more, we want more, we want more, we want more!

Why can’t every day be Earth Day? Every day let’s all go green!
Show the planet what’s she’s worth day, she’s a living breathing thing!

One day to give back one day to lend her a hand
Is that all you’ve got for someone you call a friend
One day for her prairies and beaches
To praise her for all that she teaches
Why only one day to show our love to the planet we adore
We want more, we want more, we want more, we want more!

Why can’t every day be Earth Day? Every day let’s all go green!
Show the planet what’s she’s worth day, she’s a living breathing thing!

Hey! Let’s run through the greenery, let’s kick off our shoes
Fall in love with the scenery in shades of green and blue

Why can’t every day be Earth Day? Every day let’s all go green!
Show the planet what’s she’s worth today, She’s a living breathing thing! She’s a living breathing thing, She’s a living breathing thing!
