The Lyrics

Somehow this seemed so obvious I thought someone must have done it already, but I did a search and this exact title and idea did not show up.
I'm not mad about flushing
A-flushing after I pee
Wasting water by flushing
Need to save some money

I think I'll let it mellow
Unsightly
I think I'll let it mellow
Each nightly
I'll let that yellow mellow

Water bill's up to forty
That forty's too high for me
My kid brings over four teens
They drink beer and then pee

I tell them let it mellow
Go lightly
I tell them let it mellow
Alrighty
Just let that yellow mellow

Dug a-ditch out in the back yard
Try to lower the bill
Guys can a-go in the back yard
Long time for it to fill

I think I'll let it mellow
Unsightly
I think I'll let it mellow
Each nightly
I'll let that yellow mellow

Keep that trickle in can, yeah
It's gonna be around for days
Keep that trickle in can, yeah
And flush when the aroma, it stays

I think I'll let it mellow
Unsightly
I think I'll let it mellow
Each nightly
I'll let that yellow mellow

Etc

This brings back childhood drought memories - my father thought it was clever to put a sign with the "mellow/yellow" rhyme in the bathrooms. Thanks for the nostalgia...I think! 555
