The Lyrics

Yay for recycling and getting money for it! :-) Oh, and Red Fusion is that red Dr Pepper brand crap
Carry cans back to the store
Out of cash? You'll get some more
Easy way to make some dough
You will not be poor

{guitar break}

Once I bought a couple cans of Red Fusion
They were nothin' special that I was usin'
In a box down in the basement
There they sat, untouched

Then it hit me that I could just redeem them
Gathered all the bottles and cans in a sack
Took them to the supermarket
Earned a dollar ten ($1.10)

Carry cans back to the store
Out of cash? You'll get some more
Easy way to make some dough
You will not be poor

Rinsed 'em out and loaded them in my mom's van
Made so much just bagging up some old pop cans
And if you buy a 24-pack
You will be raking in the dough

Man this sure is a good way to pay the rent
Just as long as there ain't no bottle limit
I'm sure that I will make a fortune
Redeeming cans today

Carry cans back to the store
Out of cash? You'll get some more
Easy way to make some dough
You will not be poor

{guitar break}

(Carry cans!)
Thank God for Pepsi vendors
{Carry cans!}
They will take my cans with pleasure!

Once that Miller Lite is empty
Give it to me for five cents!

Carry cans back to the store
Out of cash? You'll get some more
Easy way to make some dough
You will not be poor

You will not.. you will not be poor!

{guitar until end}

Great one! And that $1.10 will pay the rental on the three shopping carts you can live out of... :-)
