Spaceship Earth Lyrics

Below are some example lyrics from the Song-Book. Here you can see just how this collection supports your Eco-School’s progress

On Spaceship Earth there are no passengers

We are all the crew

On Spaceship Earth, this small blue planet

We all have work to do

Sailing through the universe

And spinning on through space

We must all work together now

The crew’s the human race

On Spaceship Earth there are no passengers

We are all - the crew


On Spaceship Earth the fuel we need

Was stored deep in the ground

From ancient times, the oil and gas

But most has now been found

We must use it carefully

And find new energy

New generators for our ship

To use sustainably

On Spaceship Earth there are no passengers

We are all - the crew


On Spaceship Earth the precious cargo

Needs both you and me

For all of life, both plant and animal

Filling land and sea

We must keep the Spaceship clean

The air and water pure

And let the eco-systems work

As they have done before

On Spaceship Earth there are no passengers

We are all - the crew - the crew - that’s who!



We are all an Eco-School

Each and every-one

Together we will try to see

What needs to be done

To make this place a better place

Both near and far away

To make the changes this World needs

Today and everyday

We are all an Eco-School

Let us tell you why


What we do, it matters too

Be it big or small

The little things, important things

Started at our school

We don’t drop rubbish on the ground

We turn off dripping taps

We save our electricity

We know all about that

We are all an Eco-School

Let us tell you why


We all care what lives out there

In the World around

An outdoor class sat on the grass

Hears the nature sounds

We’re proud of what our school can do

The difference we can make

We’ll walk or run or cycle here

It’s for our planet’s sake

We are all and Eco-School

          Let us tell you why


It looks like rubbish

But don’t you know?

When you recycle

The less you throw

The World’s resources

There in your bin

So stop and think please

Don’t throw it in


Paper, card and plastic too

Glass bottles and tins

So sort them out and put them out

And soon your recycling

It looks like rubbish

Don’t throw it away


It looks like rubbish

But what’s inside?

All sorts of things now

In short supply

When you save paper

You save the trees

Green forests living

For you and me


It looks like rubbish

But where’s it go?

It fills up big holes

So just say no

Make glass and plastic

Useful again

Reuse, recycle

And slim your bin


Paper, card and plastic too

Glass bottles and tins

So sort them out and put them out

And soon your recycling

It looks like rubbish

Don’t throw it away

I know the rain

It falls on me

Runs to the river

Flows to the sea

Carried cross oceans

To a distant shore

Raised to the clouds

To fall once more

We share this World with the bugs and bees

The birds and fishes, tall oak trees

And every mammal large and small

And this World is their World too


It’s called biodiversity

This wonderful variety

Of living things across the globe

And this World is their World too


So share the World with them

It’s what we all should do

This living World, with them

Yes, it is their World too


From newts in ponds to tigers rare

The melting ice under polar bears

What we do here affects them there

For this World is their World too


          Of all the creatures now alive

          It’s we alone who can decide

          To make a difference, turn the tide

          For this World is their World too


So share the World with them

It’s what we all should do

This living World, with them

Yes, it is their World too
