World Oceans Day.org serves as the central coordinating platform for World Oceans Day, with free resources and ideas for everyone — no matter where you live — to help expand the reach and impact today year-round.

Overall theme for World Oceans Day 2017:

Our Oceans, Our Future

In tribute we have compiled 10 great “Ocean” themed lyrics:

You don’t have to stray
The oceans away
Waves roll in my thoughts
Hold tight the ring
The sea will rise
Please stand by the shore
I will be, I will be there once more
Pearl Jam ~ “Oceans”

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U. S. A.
Then everybody’d be surfin’
Like Californi-a
Brian Wilson/Chuck Berry ~ “Surfin USA”

When these sails go up, mountains fade away
Stars come out, I’m finally free
It’s only the ocean and me
Jack Johnson ~ “Only the Ocean”

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean’s roar
Play for free, I play for me and play a whole lot more
Led Zeppelin ~ “The Ocean”

The smallest oceans still get,… big, big waves
Pearl Jam ~ “Tremor Christ”

Ocean man, the sequence of a life form braised in the sand
Soaking up the thirst of the land
Ween ~ “Ocean Man”

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing they’re happy and they’re safe
(Happy and they’re safe)
The Beatles ~ “Octopus’s Garden”

Daybreak over the ocean, 
Moonlight still on the sea 
I pray the waves gentle motion 
Bring my my baby back to me
…And as long as there is an ocean, 
Long as stars are to shine 
Baby you will always have my devotion
The Beach Boys ~ “Daybreak Over the Ocean”

Be yourself and know that that’s good enough
Don’t try to be someone else
Don’t try to be like someone else
Don’t try to act like someone else, be yourself
Be secure with yourself
Rely and trust upon your own decisions
On your own beliefs
Frank Ocean ~ “Be Yourself”

I’ll ride the wave where it takes me
Pearl Jam ~ “Release”
