‘The Lorax mini movie Serenade’


Great cartoon film about the environment: ‘Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax’

We saw this film in school. It is an American computer-animated 3D musical fantasy comedy film from 2012 with a good environment message – about a boy who lives in a polluted wasteland without any trees.

We had a good laugh many times!

Lyrics

How Bad Can I Be?
By Ed Helms. From the film Dr. Seuss The Lorax

How bad can I be?
I’m just doing what comes naturally
How bad can I be?
I’m just following my destiny
How bad can I be?
I’m just doing what comes naturally
How bad can I be?
How bad can I possibly be?

Well there’s a principle of nature (principle of nature)
That almost every creature knows
Called survival of the fittest (survival of the fittest)
And check it this is how it goes
The animal that eats has got to scratch and fight
And claw and bite and punch
And the animal that doesn’t well the animal that doesn’t
Winds up someone else’s l-l-lunch (lunch lunch lunch lunch lunch)
I’m just sayin’

How bad can I be?
I’m just doing what comes naturally
How bad can I be?
I’m just following my destiny
How bad can I be?
I’m just doing what comes naturally
How bad can I be?
How bad can I possibly be?

There’s a principle in business (Principle in business)
That everybody knows is sound
It says the people with the money (People with the money)
Make this ever loving world go ’round
So I’m biggering my company
I’m biggering my factory
I’m biggering my corporate sign
Everybody out there can take care of yours
And me? I’ll take care of mine mine mine mine mine (Shake that bottom line)

Let me hear you say smogedy smoke (Smogedy smoke)
Schlopadee Scholp (Schlopadee Schlop)
Complain all you want it’s never ever ever ever gonna stop

Come on now how bad can it possibly be?

How bad can I be?
I’m just building the economy
How bad can I be?
Just look at me petting this puppy
How bad can I be?
A portion of proceeds goes to charity
How bad can I be?
How bad can I possibly be?
Let’s see

All the customers are buying
And the money is multiplying
And the PR people are lying
And the lawyers are denying
Who cares if a few trees are dying
This is all so gratifying

How bad
How bad can this possibly be




‘Let It Grow’
By Fletcher Sheridan. From Dr. Seuss The Lorax

You don’t know me but my name is Sai
I’m just the O’Hare delivery guy
But it seems like trees might be worth a try
So I say: let it grow

My name is Dan. And my name’s Rose
Our son Wesley kind of glows
And that’s not good so we suppose
We should let it grow

Let it grow
Let it grow
You can’t reap what you don’t sow
Plant a seed inside the earth
Just one way to know it’s worth
Let’s celebrate the world’s rebirth
We say let it grow


My name’s Maria and I am 3
I would really like to see a tree
Lalalalalalee
I say let it grow

I’m granny Norma I’m old and I got grey hair
But I remember when trees were everywhere
And no one had to pay for air
So I say let it grow

Let it grow
Let it grow
Like it did so long ago
Maybe it’s just one tiny seed
But it’s all we really need
It’s time to change the life we lead
Time to let it grow


My name’s O’Hare
I’m one of you
I live here in Thneedville too
The things you say just might be true
It could be time to start anew
And maybe change my point of view
Nah! I say let it die
Let it die, let it die
Let it shrivel up and die
Come one, who’s with me, huh?

Nobody.
You greedy dirt bag!

Let it grow
Let it grow
Let the love inside ya show
Plant a seed inside the earth
Just one way to know it’s worth
Let’s celebrate the world’s rebirth

We say let it grow
Let it grow
Let it grow
You can’t reap what you don’t sow
It’s just one tiny seed
But it’s all we really need
It’s time to banish all your greed
Imagine Thneedville flowered and treed
Let this be our solemn creed
We say let it grow
We say let it grow
We say let it grow
We say let it grow
