The Lyrics

A 'tribute' to the unsung heroes of our cities, who work late at night to keep our streets looking good.
(MUSICAL INTRO, STREET SWEEPER SOUNDS)

I just plug my ears at night
Trying to block the street sweeper noise
Windows are useless against that rumbling hum
Louder than my neighbor's toys

CHORUS:
Ooh Ooh Street Sweeper
Can't believe how you sweep our streets so clean
But Street Sweeper
I wish you drove a quieter machine

Working late beneath the starry skies
Brushing up the asphalt plain
Rattling my windows and nerves each night
Driving all of my pets insane

CHORUS: (REPEAT)

Gone forever the good old days
When street sweepers used brooms
If the lesser of two evils I could choose
I'd rather hear sonic booms

Ooh Ooh, Street Sweeper
Can't believe how you sweep our streets so clean
But I'm a light sleeper
Can't they give you a quieter machine

Street Sweeper
Street Sweeper....(echo and fade)

(CLOSING MUSIC, STREET SWEEPER SOUNDS)
