Original Drive Less Songs

14 Nov

At Monday’s Care to Clear the Air kick-off event, students from Patti White’s 6th grade class at Morningside Elementary shared two original songs they wrote about clearing the air and driving less.

Because the songs are so creative, we wanted to share them with you!

“We can carpool, walk, and ride our bikes tonight.”

Sung to the tune of Dynamite by Taio Cruz.

I cannot breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe.
So turn your key, be idle free, free, free, free.
Take as few trips as you can, can, can, can.
To make this place a better land, land, land, land, Yeah, Yeah.
‘Cause it gets worse and worse and worse,
And we can clean it up right now, yeah.

Our air is dirty and it’s getting worse,
So work together, make it better.
So we can carpool and ride our bikes,
Work together, make it better,
‘Cause we gon’ clean our land,
We will save it and,
We can carpool, walk, ride our bikes, tonight,
‘Cause now I’ve saved one trip,
‘Cause I walked to school,
We can carpool, walk, ride our bikes tonight.

Well can’t you see, see, see, see,
See all the smog in the valley, ee, ee, ee, ee.
We may lose funding for our roads, roads, roads, roads.
If we don’t make this better soon, soon, soon, soon, yeah, yeah.
‘Cause it gets worse and worse and worse,
And we can clean it up right now, yeah.

Our air is dirty and it’s getting worse,
So work together, make it better,
So we can carpool and ride our bikes,
Work together, make it better,
‘Cause we gon’ clean this land,
We will save it and,
We can carpool walk, ride our bikes tonight,
‘Cause now I’ve saved one trip,
‘Cause I walked to school,
We can carpool, walk, ride our bikes tonight.

We will fix it up, yeah,
We can be the cleanest city ever.
We’ll breathe clean air, yeah,
And we won’t lose our valuable funding.
‘Cause we can’t live, in this smog.
We just can’t, so we gotta clean, clean it up right now.
So we can carpool, walk around, ride our bikes—-ride bussssssssssssssssssssssss.

Our air is dirty and it’s getting worse,
So work together, make it better,
So we can carpool and ride our bikes,
Work together, make it better,
‘Cause we gon’ clean this land,
We will save it and,
We can carpool, walk, ride our bikes tonight,
‘Cause now I’ve saved one trip,
‘Cause I walked to school,
We can carpool, walk, ride our bikes tonight.

Clear the Air/ABC Remix

Sung to the tune of ABC by the Jackson 5

A buh buh-buh buh-buh
A buh buh-buh buh-buh
You went to school to learn,
Things you never ever knew before,
Like driving less reduces pollution
And the solution we will find.
Now, now, now,

I’m gonna teach you, teach you, teach you,
All about clean air,
Sit yourself down,
Take a seat,
All you gotta do is repeat after me.

Clear the air,
It’s easy as 123,
As simple as
Driving less,
It’s pollution free,
123 baby you and me. (Repeat)

Come on and lets walk and Carpool
I’m gonna teach you how
To sing it out
Come on, come on, come on,
Let me tell you what it’s all about.

Taking the bus and riding a bike
Are the branches of a healthy tree
Na Na Na
But without the roots of clean air
Your life isn’t gonna be complete.

Oh,
Clear the air,
It’s easy as 123,
As simple as
Driving less,
It’s pollution free,
123 baby you and me. (Repeat)
