The Girl That Wasted Water
There once was a little girl, as pretty as a doll.
But, when it came to reserving water, she didn't care at all.
She took long showers for hours and hours.
She washed her shirts one at a time.
As for saving water, she wouldn't care a for a dime.
But one night she had a dream.
That she was standing by what used to be a stream.
This place had fish lying on their belly.
This place used to be joyful, but now it's smelly
She woke up and said to herself "It is my choice to make the world better for us."
"Next time I'll do it right without a fuss!"
