The Power of Water

It’s been here for millennia, that’s a long time
Before the dinosaurs, and as the stars shine
It ain’t a simple thing like jacks and crayons
Water is a mighty strong force, now say on

Water, water is good for your health!
Don’t disrespect, she’ll put you on the shelf
With water, you gotta proceed with caution
And make sure all the water is clean that you washed in
Water, we’ve gotta respect, or it’s drastic
I already told you ‘bout the Island of Plastic
Water has the power to crumble tons of ice
It also has the power to save your life

Hydroelectric power from water that falls
More power than your fortune teller’s crystal ball
Hydropower’s energy that’s keepin’ it real
For irrigation, dock cranes, textile, and saw mills
And from falling water pipes to powered machines
And hydropower is renewable energy
Water power, we can call it hydrology
In direct correlation with geology

Puttin’ water in your body has the power to heal
And when you frolic in the water, it’s fun that you feel
Hurricanes, thunderstorms, and massive monsoons
Flash floods, giant swells, and rapid typhoons
It’s water! It’s water! It’s alive and well
And when it comes, when it goes, often hard to tell
Whether you’re surfin’, or swimmin’, or takin’ a shower
Don’t ever forget water is full of power

Water, water is good for your health!
Don’t disrespect, she’ll put you on the shelf
With water, you gotta proceed with caution
And make sure all the water is clean that you washed in
Water, we’ve gotta respect, or it’s drastic
I already told you ‘bout the Island of Plastic
Water has the power to crumble tons of ice
It also has the power to save your life

Yeah, talkin’ ‘bout water, it’s been here for millennia, that’s a long time
Before the dinosaurs, and as the stars shine
It ain’t a simple thing like jacks and crayons, nah
Water is a mighty strong force now say on
Power to move mountains, power to move land
Power to run cities from the Hoover Dam
