When the sun’s shining, d’you know what I like?
I put on my shorts and go out on my ….BIKE
I pedal away – not a worry or care
Enjoying myself out in the fresh…AIR
It makes me so thirsty, so what do you think?
I stop by the roadside and have a good… DRINK
It’s really refreshing, you know what I mean?
‘Cos the taste of the water is so fresh and…CLEAN
And, as I drink, it comes to my mind
In far-distant places water’s diff’cult to…FIND
The water is dirty and sometimes, perhaps
Some far-away houses don’t even have…TAPS
People walk miles to find a good source
Then have to trek back where they started, of…COURSE
Most of these countries are so very dry
People look wistfully up to the…. SKY
Hoping that water will fall from above
Then that would really be something they’d….. LOVE
It might be possible, now and again,
To rush out with buckets and catch all the….RAIN
But buckets are small, they don’t hold a lot
They really need something that’s like a huge …POT
So here’s an idea which is better by far
The wonderful Rainwater Harvesting….JAR
Families should have them, I think they ought-er
They’re really quite big and can hold lots of …..WATER
They’d make such a difference – water for all
A gift from above when the rain starts to…FALL
So let’s pull together – let’s make a plan
To help these poor people as much as we…CAN
Don’t say “I might”, don’t say “I may”
Be firm, say “I will” and start from TODAY!
