[G] What could be more [GM7] drastic than our [G6] seas awash in [G#dim7] plastic for mill[Am7]eni[D7]a;
[Am] Particles ac[E7+5]cumulate, then [Am7] hydrocarbons [Am6] degradate in [C#dim7] fau[G]na.

[C] Population's [G] highest, pol[C]luting near the [G] shore. [E7]
[A7] Altering  consti[D]tution [B7] of the [Em] worldwide [Am7] ocean [D7] floor. [D7+5]

[G] Jellyfish get [GM7] jealous of those [G6] gels the plankton [G#dim7] relish for their [Am7]vi[D7]nyl,
[Am] Seasoning our [E7+5] seafood and in[Am7]citing crude re[Am6] actions that are [C#dim7]fi[G]nal.

[G] If we had Aladdin's lamp and [Dm7] only one [G7] wish, 
We'd [C] ask, not me, but [A7] seals, whales and [D7] fish,                       
[G] Every Jane and [Em] Michael, it's not [G] hard, so please re[Em]cycle all your [A7]pla-[D7]a-a[G]stic.
