The Lyrics

Just thought we needed a song about garbage men... those brave men risking their lives everyday against the evils of dirty syringes, no air con and showers... for those about to pick up rubbish... we salute you
Put out the trash last night, pre light
To the curb, I’ll take the can
And it’s covered in flies, like a garbage man
They love the dirt so much, cause it’s their life
They never shower, just like Wayne
And it’s such a pointless drive
And I think he’s gonna take a long long time
The trash man comes around again to find
Our rubbish bins are all covered in grime
Oh no no no, he’s the garbage man
The garbage man, gonna wake you up at six am
And I think he’s gonna take a long long time
The trash man comes around again to find
Our rubbish bins are all covered in grime
Oh no no no, he’s the garbage man
The garbage man, cleaning up the broken glass all day
He’s the type of guy who loves recycling
And in fact, I do as well
And there’s nothing there to recycle, if you did
And all the signs, I don’t understand
It’s my job, just one day a week
A garbage man, a garbage man
(Repeat chorus)

Nice subject for a spoof, Brad! Welcome to the site! (That also goes for DMC and a bunch of newcomers on AIR). I got 555 bags worth of garbage to dump! It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it! They don't take credit to a hard day's worth of stinky garbage. I remember watching "Rugrats" in this episode where Chuckie Finister thinks the garbage truck is a monster who eats garbage and calls him "Hubert" when "Hubert" is the garbage man's name.
