lyrics

In this ocean of plastic we need a mermaid scholastic,
a mermaid iconoclastic to save the day.
We need a climate game changer, a mermaid lone ranger
to rise from the seas and show us the way.

More birds, more bees, more butterflies please.
Hollyhocks, foxgloves, poppy seeds.
More trees, more leaves, more flowers, more weeds.
Daisies, buttercups, dandelions please.

Life’s getting hotter and harder to deny.
The strain keeps showing as we wave good morning.
The winds are blowing as we whisper with a sigh.
The sky is glowing and we all know why.

Concrete drives and paving stones might add some value to your home
but it’s more fun to grow your own - let insects reap what you have sown.
Let the grass grow greener, let leaves leave our air cleaner.
Let pollinators pollinate, let the ecosystem regulate.

More birds, more bees, more butterflies please.
Hollyhocks, foxgloves, poppy seeds.
More trees, more leaves, more flowers, more weeds.
Daisies, buttercups, dandelions please.

This journey is a short one so there’s no need for a car.
Travel too far end up right back where you are.
The futures gonna happen of that we can be sure
and there’s another thing for certain - we could use some more

birds, more bees, more butterflies please.
Hollyhocks, foxgloves, poppy seeds.
More trees, more leaves, more flowers, more weeds.
Daisies, buttercups, dandelions please.

Money doesn’t grow on trees but blossom does and so do leaves.
We’ll pay the price for not believing if we don’t keep this planet breathing.

More birds, more bees, more butterflies please.
Hollyhocks, foxgloves, poppy seeds.
More trees, more leaves, more flowers, more weeds.
Daisies, buttercups, dandelions please.

More birds, more bees, more butterflies please.
Hollyhocks, foxgloves, poppy seeds.
More trees, more leaves, more flowers, more weeds.
Daisies, buttercups, dandelions please.
