Hidden Water

Water is abundant on our planet
From clouds to oceans, it runs the gamut
You find it in lakes, rivers, and streams
A whole lot of water goes unseen

It’s hidden underground with soil and rocks
Across the land, a buried treasure box
Water fills cracks in open spaces
Moves through the Earth in porous places

Hidden Water
Hidden Water
Ground Water
Hidden Water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water

An aquifer is a place underground
Where water can easily move around
Water fills the cracks where it’s able
Saturated soils form the water table

Groundwater under us everywhere
Giving us water, so don’t despair
It’s pumped to the surface using a well
So we can grow crops, that’s oh-so-swell!

Ground Water
Hidden Water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water

When heavy rains fall from the skies
Then the water table will rise
That glass of water tastes mighty swell
Betcha it came up through a well!

Hidden Water
Hidden Water
Ground Water
Hidden Water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
Hidden, hidden, hidden water
