lyrics

We’re walking through the sea spray,
finding little rainbows
and brightly coloured plastic
is getting inbetween our toes.

We’re blowing up a sand storm
kicking pebbles and shells
and brightly coloured plastic
is everywhere we go.

And it goes to show how far it flows
when we throw away our harmless little trinkets.
You wouldn’t really think it.

We’re playing with the seagulls,
they’re screeching ‘cause they know
the brightly coloured plastic
ain’t as bright as it glows.

The colours are fantastic
but the damage is drastic
and this brightly coloured plastic
is getting up our nose.

And it goes to show how long it lasts.
Some of these brightly coloured things
have come a long way from the past.

So when you cast away your cares and woes,
just think for a minute about where that plastic goes.

We’re walking on the shoreline
thinking how the tide turns,
waiting for a sea change
when one day we might learn.

We’re sitting at the seaside
having lovely daydreams,
hoping for a future
where this beach stays clean.
