VERSE 1

In 1994 we put the time capsule in the ground
To try to get our message all around
A promise to the earth that we won't let it down
And now we're here to shout it out aloud

CHORUS

We have a world we've only borrowed from our children and their children yet to come
So let's keep our promise so they'll wonder why we ever apologised

VERSE 2

The web of life it depends upon us all
From the mighty trees to the bumblebees, and the little bugs that crawl
And the ocean depths, coral reefs and whales and tuna,
We need to help them, today or if not sooner!

CHORUS

We have a world we've only borrowed from our children and their children yet to come
So let's keep our promise so they'll wonder why we ever apologised
We have a world we've only borrowed from our children and their children yet to come
So let's keep our promise so they'll wonder why we ever apologised

VERSE 3

So what can we do, to make the world a better place?
Children by choice not by chance
Surely makes a lot of sense
Smaller footprints from fewer feet
Means an environment that's cleaner
And ditch the car when you can, cos 2 wheels are greener!

CHORUS

We have a world we've only borrowed from our children and their children yet to come
So let's keep our promise so they'll wonder why we ever apologised
We have a world we've only borrowed from our children and their children yet to come
So let's keep our promise so they'll wonder why we ever apologised
