This song is available on Stan Slaughter's Rot ‘N’ Roll
Takin' out the garbage can be such a drag.
There's some crusty old gristle hanging off a dish rag.
Sittin' right of top by some moldy old beans.
There's some long green goobers that smell mighty mean.
Aluminum cans full of yellowish goo,
Oozing over plastic caked with mildew.
Last night’s news mixed with gravy glue,
pasted to a melon and some doggy doo.
Aluminum foil lyin' in a big glob.
Somethin' green and fuzzy, I started to sob.
If I hadn't mixed it all into one bag,
taking out the garbage wouldn't be such a drag.
Recycle, Its a better way, Uh huh!
Recycl,e Its a better way.
Recycle, I'm needin' a solution to this throw away pollution,
What can I do, I got the Garbage Blues, Uh huh!
There's an old brown bottle that I couldn't see in,
Sittin' right on top of a rancid tuna tin.
When I looked inside something dribbled in my eye,
it was brown and lumpy, I started to cry.
Takin’ out the garbage is a terrible task,
there's got to be something we can do with this trash.
Well, I held my nose and I dumped out the bag.
Separated what I could from the crusty dish rag.
Took the long green goobers to the compost heap.
I was thrashin' in the trash, I was in knee deep.
All the paper and cans , every bit of that glass.
Got recycled right on out of that trash!
