Environmental Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Bill Steele/Performed by Stan Slaughter


This song is available on Stan Slaughter's
Rot ‘N’ Roll

Mr. Thompson call the waiter and he orders steak and 'taters
And he leaves the bone and gristle and he never eats the skin.
The bus boy comes and takes it, with a cough contaminates it,
And he throws it in a can with coffee grounds and tuna tins.
Then a truck comes by on Friday and it hauls it all away
And a thousand more just like it hit the landfill everyday.

With Garbage!!!
(garbage, garbage, garbage)
(garbage garbage garbage)
We're fillin' up the land with garbage!!!
(garbage, garbage, garbage)
What will we do when there's no place left to put all the garbage??
(garbage garbage garbage)

Mr. Thompson starts his Cadillac and drives it down the freeway track,
And he leaves his friends and neighbors in a hydrocarbon haze.
He's joined by lots of other cars, all shooting gases to the stars.
There it forms a seething cloud that hangs for thirty days.
Then the sun bakes down upon it with its ultraviolet tongues
And it turns to smog and settles down and winds up in our lungs.

It's Garbage!!!
(garbage, garbage, garbage)
(garbage garbage garbage)
We're fillin' up the air with garbage,
What will we do when there's nothing left to breathe but garbage??
(garbage garbage garbage)

He gets home and takes off his shoes,
And settles down with the evening news,
while the kids do all their homework with the T.V. in one ear.
They watch the Ninja Turtles for the thousandth time,
Sell plastic dolls and conquer crime.
While they dutifully recall the date of birth of Paul Revere.
There's a piece that's in the paper 'bout the Mayor's middle name,
And he gets it read in time to watch the All-Star Bingo game.

It's Garbage!!!
(garbage, garbage, garbage)
(garbage garbage garbage)
We're fillin' up our minds with garbage!
(garbage garbage garbage)
What will we do when there's nothin' left to think about ,
And nothin' left to talk about and nothin left to do and nothin' left to see,
And nothin' left to be
but Garbage?????
