Carbon dioxide, CO2
Where does it come from and what does it do?
It's a chemical compound, it's all around
Trees breathe it in and we breathe it out
So why is that bad? (What's wrong with that?)
The problem is that we're producing too much of it

Like when you turn on a car (CO2)
You take a long shower (CO2)
See that smokestack? (CO2)
A coal power-plant burns

C-O-O, let's add an L to that
From sea, oh, to shining sea
Altogether we can make the globe a little more cool...

Now when CO2 sits in the air
Traps heat from the sun in the atmosphere
And it puts a mighty strain on the delicate globe
You can sit and complain but you gotta have hope

'Cause it dirties up the water (CO2)
The planet's getting hotter (CO2)
Tell your son and daughter about (CO2)
Write your senator a letter about

C-O-O, let's add an L to that
From sea, oh, to shining sea
Altogether we can make the globe a little more cool...

You can lose sleep over CO2
But here's a couple things that we can do
Recycle at home or plant a tree
Or take a shorter shower and turn down the AC

Supe up your roof with solar panels
Turn down the heat and put on a flannel
Or bring your own bags to the grocery store
Or get around town in a hybrid car

When you're heading to work or cruising to school
You can ride your bike and you can drive carpool
Carpool, carpool, carpool, carpool...

C-O-O, let's add an L to that
From sea, oh, to shining sea
Altogether we can make the globe a little more cool...
