A Planet Full Of Plastic 2020

kids children song A-Planet-full-of-plastic

Hello music and planet lovers! We hope you have been safe and well during this very strange time. Remember, music and singing are proven to make you feel happier and healthier, so we hope you’ve been doing lots of those recently.

This year Daphodil Music has had the privilege of collaborating once again with WIRRAL SCIENCE UNDER THE STARS on their 2020 film titled — ‘A Planet Full Of Plastic (and how we can help)’.  This is a unique conservation film about reducing the use of single-use plastic, inspired by Neal Layton’s book (affiliate link), which shares the same title.

Watch the film A Planet Full Of Plastic here:

It was an honour to compose the theme song A Planet Full Of Plastic for this important project with its urgent message that affects us all. Our planet is crying out to us and we need to listen and pay attention. What can you do to help the planet and spread the message? Sing! Listen to our song A Planet Full Of Plastic and sing along using the lyrics below. Save the planet by singing and making music! What could be more fantastic than that?

A Planet Full Of Plastic – Lyrics:

Verse 1:
You and me, we need to be,
Thinking about the world we live in.
Full of tree and birds and bees,
Rivers and streams and lots of people.
We fill out homes with things, and lots of them are made of plastic,
Like bottles, toys and clothes, it really is fantastic but it –
Doesn’t biodegrade, doesn’t rot, break down or disappear,
It stays around – that isn’t great, endangering life both far and near!

Chorus:
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world,
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world, (our seas, our oceans deep)
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.

Verse 2:
You and me, we need to be,
Thinking about the world we live in.
A paradise of wildlife,
The magic of nature all around us.
But if we don’t act now, we’ll have a planet full of plastic –
Find clever ways to help reduce, reuse recycle plastic, ‘case it –
Doesn’t biodegrade, doesn’t rot, break down or disappear,
It stays around – that isn’t great, endangering life both far and near!

Chorus:
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world,
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world, (our seas, our oceans deep)
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.

Repeat chorus and clap to the beat

Repeat chorus with harmonies:

We won’t give up!
We’ll act, speak up!
We won’t give up!
We’ll sing and shout!

Don’t Let Them (Go Anywhere) – Bonus Track

Dear listeners,

This is the final song from the Extinct Animal Songs project. It is all about Endangered Animals and as the song tells us, these are animals that are in danger of becoming extinct, so if we don’t care for them and help them to stay alive, they will disappear all together. You might be shocked to discover that some of your favourite animals are endangered and might not be around much longer unless we do something about it!

 

 

  

 

Check out the Don’t Let Them Video Clip for movements and actions that go with this song, created by the Daphodil Music Singers:

 

 

Lyrics:

We’ve got the panda, the tiger, the polar bear
Don’t let them go anywhere.
‘Cause if we let them they’ll never come back again,
And we will lose our animal friends!

The giant tortoise, the eagle, the albatross –
This is really making us cross.
‘Cause if we let them they’ll never come back again,
And we will lose our animal friends!

***

Thank you to the Daphodil Music Singers for doing their bit to save all the lovely endangered species by co-writing this song and singing and spreading the message!

This is the end of this project, and we had a wonderful time singing, recording, dancing, drawing and making music come to life!

 

 

    

There will be a new project very soon – if you are interested in joining the musical fun please contact me today.

An enormous thank you to:

The Daphodil Music Singers for your beautiful voices and hard work
The Daphodil Music Parents for all your support
To Udi for orchestrating, arranging, recording and playing gorgeous guitars
To everyone out there who has been following – thanks and please keep sharing Daphodil Music with other music lovers!

See you soon,

Daphne x
