I'm drivin' my hybrid down to the corner store then I'll get back in my car and then I'll drive some more I got my sun glasses on, I've got my foot to the floor in my 21st century car I'm drivin' my hybrid to the county fair. With all the windows rolled down, I'm gonna get some air I've got my driving gloves on - they're a brand new pair in my 21st century car! I'm drivin' my hybrid, I'm drivin' my hybrid, I'm drivin' my hybrid, I'm drivin' my 21st century car I"m drivin' my hybrid down in to Central Park then I'll get out of my car, I'm gonna take a walk And then I'll get back in because it ain't no sin to drive a 21st century car I'm drivin' my hybrid down to the deep blue sea And then I'll catch some waves, that's where I'm gonna be Then I'll get back in my car, I'll drive it fast - I'll drive far 'cause I'm a 21st century star I'm drivin' my hybrid, I'm drivin' my hybrid, I'm drivin' my hybrid, I'm drivin' my 21st century car

The Elements 02:12
Did you know our Earth is made of many elements And that's what gives our planet so much elegance Like: Oxygen Silicon Aluminum Iron Calcium Sodium Potassium Magnesium There's 117 elements in all But that's a lot for me to ask you to recall And I'm sure there's many other things you'd like to do And the period table is a lot to chew So, here's what I'll do I'll just name a few...

It's Earth Day, it's Earth Day, Its like the planet's very own birthday Happy Earth Day Happy Earth Day The bluebirds are singing and the church bells are ringing Because it's Earth Day, yes it's Earth Day The rain stopped falling Now summer's calling And in our hearts we know there's something in the air It's Earth Day, It's Earth Day It's like the planet's very own birthday Happy Earth Day Happy Earth Day The bluebirds are singing and the church bells are ringing Because it's Earth Day, yes it's Earth Day The sky is clearing There's a rainbow appearing And this planet is a gift that we all share It's Earth Day It's Earth Day, It's Earth Day - Its the planet's very own birthday Happy Earth Day Happy Earth Day The sun is shining And there's a silver lining Oh, this planet is a gift that we all share. It's Earth Day It's Earth Day, It's Earth Day - It's like the planet's very own birthday Happy Earth Day Happy Earth Day

Earthly creatures - we are lucky to share this world with you Earthly creatures - you are beautiful, but you can be scary too. Earthly creatures - it's an honor to share this world with you. And something tells me that other planets - they wish that they could have you too. You're swimming in the deep blue seas. And flying over our heads. You walk beside us down the street. You share our couches and our beds. You come in sizes big and small. Sometimes you answer when we call. And it is sad but it is true - Sometimes we don't treat you as well as we ought to Earthly creatures we are scared of some of you it's true. But I was thinkin' - maybe it's because we don't understand you. Earthly creatures it's a privilege to share this world with you. And something tells me - that other planets are jealous they don't have you too. You serenade us in the trees You sit on top of our heads. You walk beside us on the beach. Sometimes you tear our things to shreds. You make this world a better place. You put a smile upon my face. And it is sad, but it is true - Sometimes we don't treat you as well as we ought to. You're swimming in our deep blue seas. You're floating gently in the breeze. You even pollinate our land. I'm sure some day we'll understand. That we'd be LOST without you here. So please don't EVER disappear. And it is sad but it is true - Sometimes we don't treat you as well as we ought to. Yes, it is sad, but it is true - Sometimes we don't treat you as well as we ought to.

We all live here together we cannot escape So let’s get along Learn how to relate because we’re all in this together We all share this world And we’re sailing through the universe we’re orbiting the sun on a silver blue space ship we might as well have some fun because we’re all in this together We all share this world Our planet is so special so let’s prove that we care If we could all join together And work as one to repair Or we could live here in fear And all the wars could end here if we all made a choice if we could tolerate our differences then everyone would rejoice Because we’re all in this together. We all share this world
