Ho He Ho Ee-Eh-Oh Ho He Ho Ee-Eh

We all live on the same planet, full of joy and without worries We all live under the same sun, using love to write out our stories 

‘Cause we are all children of the Earth,
and our dream is that we’ll all come together
We are small, but we are strong, we can all make people happy Let us join hands, come and sing along with me 

Ho He Ho Ee-Eh-Oh Ho He Ho Ee-Eh
Ho He Ho Ee-Eh-Oh He Ho Ee-Eh-Oh

“We are small, but we are strong!”

There are so many ways we can help our planet. We can avoid using single-use dining ware or containers whenever possible. We can walk, bike and take the bus or train. We can eat less meat and increase the thermostat for our air conditioning. But most of all, we can take good care of every person, animal and object around us. This is something we can all do, no matter how big or small, or young or old. When we fill the world with kindness, we can help mitigate climate change and gradually reduce the disasters happening in the world, so all people can be happy!
