The Lyrics

ok well i put some thought into this one, i hope it does better then my other parodies. here it goes:
Have I lost my mind?
Grabbing Garbage that I find,
I was to be rich,
Not collect trash from a ditch,

I am Garbage Man,
Yes I am, My name is Stan,
I am King of smell,
Sending noses straight to hell,

I dislike my job,
My wife says that I'm a slob,
I hate all this trash,
But I clean it in a flash,

I drive one big truck,
Getting paid near seven bucks,
Lifting Garbage Cans,
Yes I must, I'm Garbage Man,

Why don't i have doors?
Is it manufactuer's bore?
When i enter rooms,
My wife tells me a smell looms,

Driving through teh streets,
It's the smell that I can't beat,
Driving in one lane,
Lifting cans give me back pain,

Now my rant is done,
Think of Garbage man as one,
Who picks up trash cans,
ok lemme explain. I know garbage men dont get paid 7 bucks. however i used to think this about 4 years ago. And the part about manufactuers bore is about why garbage trucks dont have doors. I blamed this on teh manufactuerers as they might find it fun to make garbage men smell the garbage all day.

Good, but you seem to have left out the part where Ozzy says "Nobody wants him, he just stares at the world...." Leaving out that part is something you can't really just pass through with a 5 on pacing, so I gave you a 3 because everything else is good. Anyways, it was still a good job.
