Tune: Down By the Bay

Down by the Bay,
By the Chesapeake Bay.
Our water flows,
Animals grow.
We must take care,
Of the earth there.
I will plant trees in my yard.
It’s not that hard.
Care for our bay!

Down by the bay,
By the Chesapeake Bay.
Our water flows,
Animals grow.
We must take care,
Of the earth there.
I will not fertilize,
Or use pesticides.
Care for our bay!

Down by the bay,
By the Chesapeake Bay.
Our water flows,
Animals grow.
We must take care,
Of the earth there.
I will use a car less times,
Walking’s just fine.
Care for our bay!

Down by the bay,
By the Chesapeake Bay.
Our water flows,
Animals grow.
We must take care,
Of the earth there.
I’m always in the mood,
To buy local food.
Care for our bay!

Down by the bay,
By the Chesapeake Bay.
Our water flows,
Animals grow.
We must take care,
Of the earth there.
Some water I’ll conserve,
Leave some in reserve.
Care for our bay!

Down by the bay,
By the Chesapeake Bay.
Our water flows,
Animals grow.
We must take care,
Of the earth there.
I teach people who I meet,
To keep our bay so neat.
Care for our bay!
