The Lyrics

Too many shopping carts are submerged in the river
Too many toilet rolls have drifted out to sea
You throw it out and yet you don't think twice
The things we get rid of - the things we get rid of

The stuff we dump is prob'ly causing so much cancer
We've got the solvents and the chemicals alone
The leather chairs and all the sofas too
The things we get rid of - the things we get rid of

Just dumping in the drain and the loo
In the septic tank too
'Cus you're feeling just too lazy for recycling
And you bury that old oil in the yard
Plastics ain't gonna break up
Still be there each time we wake up

Ooh my old computer
Ooh it's thrown away
Ooh now won't the landfill have a ball

(guitar solo)

Just pour it down the drain and the loo
And there's asbestos too
And there sitting in some cans old paint is drying
You can trash it when it starts to fossilize
Plastics ain't gonna break up
And then soon we'll fill the lake up

Ooh my used snow tires
Ooh they're thrown away
Ooh I'll get some new ones at the mall

Clean the cupboards of the foods that no one uses
Wheat germ and candied yams, evaporated milk
I dunno why we ever bought that junk - it's
The things we get rid of - the things we get rid of
The things we get rid of - the things we get rid of
( X 8 and fade)
