The Lyrics

let me tell you how it will be
i'll drive past you, nineteen past three
cause i'm the trashman
yeah, i'm the trashman

the noise i make will not be small
you will not get no rest at all
cause i'm the trashman
yeah, i'm the trashman

i will drive my truck right down your street
if you try to snooze, trash cans i'll beat
there's no way to doze between the sheets
when your whole house rocks, your hell's complete
trashman !

cause i'm the trashman
yeah, i'm the trashman

if you are still awake at four
(trashman will be waitin')
my trash truck's comin' 'round once more
(trashman's on your street)
cause i'm the trashman
yeah, i'm the trashman

now its been twice that i drove by
you stare at me with bloodshot eyes
cause i'm the trashman
yeah, i'm the trashman

and you're gettin' so fed up with me

trashman !

Rick - good one. 5's - actually I would have been glad if the Trash Company had come at 3 am today. Hell, I was up anyway - just got back about then from a late night drive I took to cool off and listen to some homemade CD's at a nice, high volume in my car. The bin in back is totally over-flowing and I have two bags in the kitchen that need to be taken out. I guess someone moved out over the weekend and filled the bin, + the holiday Monday would have pushed back the private company's collection schedule. I just checked, the thing is still full.

Hey, I thought your name was Alvin!! 555 :-) I don't know where you're from, but this is obviously a worldwide phenomena..I've lived in 4 countries and it's the same story. Is there like an international training academy or something?

It's understandable why Paul made that mistake. (I just have to point this out, it's happened to me) It does sound like something I would write. http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/thebeatles397.shtml

Uh, just what were all your names again, sonny(s)? Ehhh? Can you speak up a little, my hearing's not what it used to be. Nor my eyesight, nor my memory, either, apparently. Damn, I was sure it said "Rick Duncan" at the top. Well, anyway, it was a damn good parody whoever the hell you are, right Alfred??? Seriously, my apologies, ALVIN. I'll make it up to you. I'll call Rick, "Alvin" on the next one of his I look at...Rick, I'm glad to see you make something positive out of this by plugging an earlier work. I'm going over to gander at it now.

This one reminds me of the line in Springsteen's "New York City Serenade" about the junkman singing... :-)
