Verse: He's pickin' up aluminum
He doesn't miss a trick
He's got a little nail
So he can poke 'em with his stick.
He's fillin' up his bag
and he's workin'; He's a man!
Doin' what he can. (He says)
Chorus: Recycle! It's a groovy thang to do do do
Recycle! Makes the dumps last longer, too
Reduce, Renew, Reuse, Re-cycle! (recycle, recycle, recycle) Yeah!
Verse: She's got a special place
for every kind of trash
glass and plastic bags.
She rinses out her milk jugs
and she throws 'em in the bin
Marty the smarty
Doin' what she can. (chorus)
Verse: Don't think you gotta wait
till you're old enough to drive
Get started when you're little
You can do it when you're five.
Ask your mom or dad
to help you with your plan
Get started, baby
Doin' what you can. (You're gonna..) (chorus)
Repeat chorus (optional)
When we sing the Recycle chorus, we swing our arms in a wide circle.
I also have 3 kids come up to the mic and do the "recycle, recycle, recycle, YEAH" part.
