The Lyrics

I wanted there to be a cleaner version of the song, so here we have the Doobie Brothers unable to concentrate on their job of collecting garbage; they would much rather think about science fiction shows. It's mostly the same as the one I posted as a comment at YouTube (but that was taken down), but I've made minor changes.
“Garbage Truck”

Karaoke; Doobie Brothers;
YEAH!
The day starts now...
Together on the truck;
The sun is up.
The day starts now.

Day starts now
And we’re on the truck,
Holding on, drive along
Picking garbage up.

GARBAGE UP!

They stare at us
Like we’re here to rob;

YEAH!

We need the cash, and so we
Took the job.

COME ON!

A/C here
They want us to take away,
But it uses a compressor
So it’s gotta here stay.

YEAH, YEAH!

A pile of sticks
Around the bend,
When owner comes back
He’ll see it again.

THIS IS THE TALE
OF COMMANDER SINCLAIR!
BABYLON 5
IN NEUTRAL SPACE!

THE LORDS OF ORDER;
THE AGENTS OF CHAOS;
VORLON POWER,
AND SHADOWS’ RACE!

Hey, get yourself a life
In the here and the now,
Not with Captain Kirk
On the Enterprise’s bow.

MARTIN LANDAU!

Many, many trash bags
Waiting at the road.
Teleport? No. Throw in
And let’s go.

JOHN KOENIG!

OCD and
Another bag of water.
Take it anyway
Cause she’s still the mayor’s daughter.

YEAH, YEAH!

Can has wheels so
It’s easy for her.
Use the hydraulic lift
And we’ll make sure...

NOW BACK TO THE GOOD PART!

THIS IS THE TALE
OF COMMANDER KOENIG,
DOCTOR RUSSELL,
AND ALPHA BASE!

THE BIGGEST BOMB MADE;
AN IMPENDING DISASTER;
A VOYAGE IN
INTERGALACTIC SPACE!

She looks out through the glass,
With a giant smile.
Watch out!

BARRY MORSE!

CATHERINE SCHELL!

Let’s jump up and move on
‘Cause there’s work to do.
Come on!

BARBARA BAIN!

TONY! PAUL!

My good brothers,
I need your mind
Right here, right now!

YES INDEED!
I’LL DO MY BEST TO MAKE IT SO!

No!

HE IS TRULY A GENIUS
AND A CREDIT TO MANKIND,

Must focus.

BUT HE COULD NOT SAVE HIS BELOVED WIFE
FROM THE CRASH THAT TOOK HER LIFE!

Come on!

ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE;
DAVID BRUCE BANNER IS MY NAME!

My God!

BUT YOU CAN CALL ME DAVID,
LETTING PEOPLE THINK I’M DEAD!

Lonely man...

...WOULDN’T LIKE ME WHEN I’M ANGRY!
DON’T MAKE...ME ANGRY!

THIS IS THE TALE
OF DAVID BRUCE BANNER!
(THIS IS THE TALE!)
A PHYSICIAN AND A SCIENTIST,

HE MUST LET THE WORLD
THINK THAT HE IS DEAD
‘TIL HE CAN FIND A WAY
TO CONTROL THE RAGE--
TO CONTROL THE RAGE--

Okay...
It appears this isn’t going to work, brothers.

WHEN I’M ANGRY!

The Hulk intro was deleted, so consider checking out Kenneth Johnson's Hulk page. I would give the link, but I don't want to make the site's maintainers angry.

Here are some alternative lyrics based on UFO and Space Precinct. There are so many false positive matches for the show, UFO, that anyone interested might want to add search terms like Ed Bishop, Commander Straker, or Gerry Anderson. "THIS IS THE TALE OF COMMANDER STRAKER, SUPREME HEADQUARTERS, AND UFOs; UNWELCOME VISITS FROM ALIEN BEINGS; WITH EVERY ADVENTURE, THE DANGER GROWS!" "THIS IS THE TALE OF LIEUTENANT BROGAN, DEMETER CITY AND ALTOR'S MOBS! SCIENCE IN ACTION, CRIMINAL JUSTICE, WORLDWIDE DESTRUCTION; 'I LOVE THIS JOB!'" Look for the opening titles at https://youtu.be/8CvURidpkCY and https://youtu.be/vkW_k8FZMGY if I may beg the moderators' pardon.
