Description

The song is about Rachel Carson's influence on protecting our environment. Her book Silent Spring helped bring about the modern environmental movement. Her influence continues to this day.

Verse 1:
A child named Rachel
loved the outdoors
She walked through fields and woods
She walked along the shores

Chorus:
Rachel, Rachel
The songbirds sing
May there never be a silent spring

Verse 2:
Rachel learned about nature
and listened to its sounds
Day after day
she heard them all around

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:
Rachel became a scientist
and a writer too
She wrote about nature
in plain words for me and you
Repeat Chorus

Verse 4:
Rachel warned of chemicals
that poisoned all that grew
They killed plants and animals
and silenced songbirds, too

Repeat Chorus

Verse 5:
Rachel knew that living things
depend on each other
When we protect nature
we protect one another

Repeat Chorus

Verse 6:
When birds fill the air
with a symphony of songs
When we protect the earth
Rachel Carson lives on

Repeat Chorus 2X's
