On Into The Amazon
00:00 / 01:18


Sing Along Now!


On into the Amazon rainforest
Go into the Amazon rainforest

The rainforest is growing all along the equator
It's humid, hot and rains a lot
Through Peru, Bolivia, Colombia and Ecuador
Brazil has more rainforest than
Venezuela and all the rest in South America

Underneath tree canopies
Are many new varieties
Of plants that cure disease
Medicine for you and me
Miracle discoveries

Misty green the forest (Rain Rain Rain)
Making oxygen for us to breathe

Anaconda, Capybara, Jaguar, Alligator
Fourteen hundred kinds of birds
Primates, Leaf-Cutter Ants,
Forty thousand kinds of plants

Are living in the Amazon rainforest
Go into the Amazon rainforest now.

On Into The Amazon
