When outsiders look at India,they see,
A beautiful independent country, a place that is free.
But how can India be liberated with dirt under your feet,
With people spitting and littering our beautiful streets?
Cleanliness is Godliness, one of the first things we're taught
The words maybe small, but they do mean a lot.
The change starts only at each and every home,
So take ‘Clean India Campaign' and make it your own.
It doesn't take something great to make a difference,
So put in your best and let the change commence.
By this, our country will be able to progress.
And with its beauty it'll beParadise, no less.
It is time we all opened our eyes,
And give this thing our best tries.
Let us all work towards the ‘Clean India Campaign',
Because not one step we take will be in vain.
