(background fish in brackets)

There's a place
Where I can sit
Just me, myself and I
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond

Where the water's
Fresh and clean
And peaceful as a sigh
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond

Look at the grass all around me
It's green as the smile on my face
Look at the trees they astound me
Wow, what a beautiful place

There's a spot
Where no one lives
But quiet little fish
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond

Nature lets me
Come and visit
Any time I wish
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond

Look at us all
We're enjoying
A breath of sweet country air

(a boat goes by trailing fumes, Kermit coughs,
a family turns up a boombox loud)

Hey! This is getting annoying
Please keep it down over there!
Wait a minute! Who said you
Could dump your garbage here?
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond

Cleaning it all up again
Could take us years and years
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond

Keeping it clean to begin with
Yes that's the smart thing to do

(fish pop up with their faces covered in gas masks)

(Don't let them cover our fins with
Any more black slimy gooooooo!)

Save a place where I can sit
Just me, myself and I
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond
Keep the water fresh and clean
And peaceful as a sigh
On my pond (on my pond)
On my pond
(repeat as people start picking up garbage)

Isn't it a lot nicer with everything all cleaned up like this?

On my pond (on my pond)
(repeat and fade)
