Living in Paradise

[Chant:]  Our planet is blue, our planet is green,
Our planet is the brightest you've ever seen.
Our planet is so cool, it really is hot -
It gives us everything it's got.

We're living in paradise.
Tell the leaders of every nation:
We can start today,
We can find a better way.
We're living in paradise.
We must pass it on to a new generation,
So our children can say:
We're living in paradise.

Take care of this planet,
Start a quiet revolution.
Find a way to plan it,
So we don't kill ourselves with pollution,
So the fish stay in the sea
And the animals roam wild and free.

Nature is our friend,
Nature is our happiness,
Nature restores us,
Nature hides our ugliness.
How can we be well
If we let our planet go to hell.

We're living in paradise.
Tell the leaders of every nation:
We can start today,
We can find a better way.
We're living in paradise.
We must pass it on to a new generation,
So our children can say:
We're living in paradise.

This world is our paradise, but we don't know it.
Let's do something right today, so we don't blow it away.

[Keep chanting the chorus:]  We're living in paradise.
Tell the leaders of every nation:
We can start today,
We can find a better way.
We're living in paradise.
We must pass it on to a new generation,
So our children can say:
We're living in paradise.

[Rap:]  Lend a hand:  Nature is our friend - 
Would you send a friend garbage?

"We are the fishes:  Please keep your sludge -
Thank you - very much."

"My name is Bambi, the forest is my bed.
Please don't leave your litter or your cigarette."

Keep the water pure, keep the forests green,
Keep the birds and the trees and the fishes in the seas.

Stop all the want, stop all the haste,
Put a stop to all this terrible waste.

Shout it out loud, ring every bell:
Don't make our planet a living hell.

Our planet is so cool, it really is hot -
It gives us all the things we've got.

Lift your voice, open your eyes:
This world is paradise.
