It makes you healthy,
It gives you energy,
An apple or a guava
An orange or a papaya
Eat a fruit everyday
But don’t throw the seeds away.

Here’s a simple thing you can do
You could tell all your friends too!
Plant the seed in the soil
(It doesn’t take much time or toil)
Pour a little water there
A young shoot will soon appear.

In time it’ll become a big tree –
Which gives so much to you and me!
This way there’ll be forests again
Green and clean our earth will remain.

Grow trees this easy way –
And its fun too, I say!
So eat a fruit every day
But remember —
Don’t throw the seeds away.

Don't Throw the Seeds Away
