Willie Wimple

some songs from the environmental cartoon series

Willie Wimple Went A'Boating


Willie Wimple went aí boating
Making dirty water here
Pouring stuff there, 'till the gunk was everywhere
Now if every kid did it, canít you see
What an icky mess it would be?

No place for fish to swim
No lakes for sailing in
No rivers, no streams, no submarines
No swimming ever again!

Now if every kid did it, canít you see
What an icky, messy, no-fun world it would be?
Yuck!

Willie Wimple Went A'Walking


TD Note: The line about "no bees" is becoming sadly ironic as we *are* losing them (read this article on Colony Collapse Disorder)

Willie Wimple went aí walking
And he stomped a plant here
Chopped a tree there
Choppin', choppin' everywhere
Now if every kid did it, canít you see
What an ugly place it would be?

No beautiful flowers to see
Just empty land like an old prairie
No home for the birds
No grass, no trees
No plants, no bees, in other words

If every kid did it, canít you see
What an empty, ugly, no-fun world it would be?
Yuck!

Willie Wimple Went A'?

(incomplete, obviously!)

He threw his trash there, till the junk was everywhere
Now if every kid did it, canít you see
What a messy place it would be?

No room for a marching band
No place for people to stand
No yards to play in, ---- to stay in,
Just trash across our land
Now if every kid did it, canít you see
What an ugly, awful, no-fun world it would be?
Yuck!
