Garbage Blues
Dennis Westphall

This song is available on Tickle Tune Typhoon's Hug the Earth

Takin' out the garbage can be such a drag
There's some crusty old gristle
hanging off a dish rag
That's sittin' right on top by some mouldy old beans

There's some long green goobers
That smell mighty mean
Aluminum cans full of yellowish goo
Oozin' over plastic caked with mildew

Well last night's news, mixed with gravy glue
Was pasted to a melon and some doggy doo
Aluminum foil layin in a big glob
Of something green and fuzzy, I started to sob

If I hadn't mixed it all in this bag
Takin' out the garbage wouldn't
Be such a drag

Uh huh recycle it's a better way uh huh
Recycle it's a better way

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 beer bottle that I
couldn't see in
Sittin' right next to a rancid tuna tin
You know I looked inside

Something dribbled in my eye
It was brown and lumpy, I started to cry
Dealin' with the garbage is a terrible task
There's gotta be something I 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
Long green goobers to the compost heap

Thrashin' in the trash, I was knee deep
All the paper and the cans
Every bit of the glass
Got recycled right out of the trash.
