Earth Day is celebrated on April 20.

(To tune of the 1890s popular song, “The Sidewalks of New York,” aka “East Side, West Side,” by Charles B. Lawlor and James W. Blake”)

Earth Day, Earth Day
All around the sphere
Are cars emitting carbon
Up into the atmosphere

Feel the changing weather
O’er hill and river and town
The temperatures are rising
Acid rain is falling down

Earth Day, Earth Day
Celebrate, even while
A nuclear reactor
Might irradiate your smile

Energy makes millions
Water we’ll soon have to boil
And if this madness continues
We might all be drinking oil
