lyrics

Read it in a magazine, see it on TV
Here it from Sierra Club, hear it some from me
Plastic is a no-no in the ocean and the sea
Plastic is a no-no when it’s falling from the trees

Refrain:
Please, please, Don’t Release That Balloon
Tie it to your desk, decorate your room
Please, please, Don’t Release That Balloon
Find another way to celebrate the afternoon

When they go a-sailing on a sunny, windy day
They may wind up in the ocean, 500 miles away
They look so nice and harmless as they’re sailing on their way
They may wind up in a dinner that a dolphin ate that day

Fly ‘em in an atrium to the roof so high
Or in the school gymnasium, they’ll come down by and by
Fill ‘em full of helium that makes your voice so high
Fly ‘em where you wanna, but don’t fly ‘em in the sky

Refrain, to Bridge:
Instead of sending up your messages in baloons
Raise your voice and croon, like coyotes at the moon
Please, please, Don’t Release That Balloon
Tie ‘em to your desk, (go clean up your room)
Please, please, Don’t Release That Balloon
Find another way to celebrate the afternoon
There’s so many ways to celebrate the afternoon…POP!
