If You See A Piece of Litter
(Tune: Happy and You Know It)
If you see a piece of litter pick it up (pick it up!)
If you see a piece of litter pick it up
We will make the world look better, if we pick up all the litter
If you see a piece of litter, pick it up.

This Is the Way We Turn Off the Lights
This is the way we turn off the lights,
Turn off the lights, turn off the lights.
This is the way we turn off the lights,
Because we love our world
Repeat with: turn of the water, throw out the trash, recycle the cans, plant the seeds...

Save, Save, Save the Cans
(Tune of Row Your Boat)
Save, save, save the cans, throw them in the bin
We can help to save the Earth, if we all pitch in.\
Repeat with: bottles, trash, plastics...
There Was An Old Woman
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
She had so much trash, she didn’t know what to do
She piled up the plastics, the bottles, the cans,
And took them out back to the Recycling Man.

We’ve Been Working On Recycling
(Tune: Working on Railroad)
We've been working on recycling
All the trash we can,
We've been working on recycling,
It's a very simple plan,
Separate your glass and paper,
Separate your plastic and tin.

Take the trash that you’ve recycled to your recycling bin!
