A music video urging people to help improve water quality may not sound like a sure fire hit, but it is already making waves on the internet.
The three minute film promotes care for the environment around Windermere in the Lake District.
Hannah McNulty reports:
The Windermere song is part of £1.7 million project called Windermere Reflections, which aims at highlighting environmental issues affecting the Windermere catchment area.
Verses in the song give practical advice like this:
"When you walk on the hills take care where you step, eroded paths make an awful mess.
"The sediment flows into the lake, meaning little fishes no babies can make."
There are 19 projects running over three years and split into four themes- practical conservation, choices for a greener future, celebrating landscape and heritage, and learning opportunities.

A music video made in Windermere is encouraging people to take care when visiting the Lake District.
The three-minute film has proved popular online and is now being shown in local cinemas.
The video features a 'Lady Windermere' character, who represents the lake, and gives advice on how to look after the Lake District and help improve water quality.
The Heritage Lottery funded the project, which was written by local practitioner Amy Boud and animator David Brown.
