Act Now!                             

Feel it in the air remember what's been told:
A third of the ground out there is our greenest gold.
Don't waste it, show you care so that people everywhere
Understand and see our forest from the trees

You need to act now plant it in your heart
The simple fact of how we can do our part
For future generations. Step up and make a vow,
‘Cause forest matters, our time is now.

They are homes for plenty of species in the Earth,
A livelihood to many, of so much they are worth.
Use wisely what's been given and give back what you owe.
We need them for our living - we want our forest to grow.

You need to act now plant it in your heart
The simple fact of how we can do our part
For future generations. Step up and make a vow,
‘Cause forest matters, our time is now.

This seedling in my hand, I will let it grow
for those who built our land so many years ago.
We have all the keys and after centuries
if our game is fair the green gold will be there.

You need to act now plant it in your heart
The simple fact of how we can do our part
For future generations. Step up and make a vow,
‘Cause forest matters, our time is now.
‘Cause forest matters, our time is now!
