Where does all the plastic go?

Where does all the plastic go? 
Into the sea, into the sea.
How does it get there, who threw it away?
Was it you or was it me?

Plastic houseplants, why not real plants?
I saw the fake ones at the store,
Shoppers must want them, people must buy them;
I don't want to see any more.



It's not just hunting that'll kill the last whale,
Plastic will do it and it's a very sad tale.
What about the albatrosses?
They are dying out too,
They keep on fishing in the ocean's plastic stew.
These birds mate for life, only to watch their babies die,
From the plastic trash they feed them,
But they cannot understand why.

The plastic bag I bought, it very quickly broke,
If it ever gets burned there'll be poisonous smoke.

Plastic kills the turtles,
Plastic's eaten by the fish,
It is in the food chain,
And in the dinner on your dish.

Into the sea, into the sea.
How does it get there, who threw it away?
Was it you or was it me?
