The Lyrics

(Instrumental intro)

They're working at Congress late at night
To change all the laws for the Radical Right
We didn't see it coming 'til too late
The G.O.P.'s charging out the gate

You see the lead junk in the middle of the field
Lead junk in the middle of the field
Lead junk in the middle of the field
Stinking to high heaven

(Instrumental break)

Take a whiff - watch out! - you'll burn your nose
Breathe from a tank, and through a hose
If you try to look, there's not much to see
Except the smoke belching from an old factory

You see the lead junk in the middle of the field
Lead junk in the middle of the field
Lead junk in the middle of the field
Stinking to high heaven (Man, it stinks!)

(Fiddle break)

(The high part:)
Well you got leaky landfills, you got PCB
All the sewer pipes are toxic as can be
Got your dead critters, and your deformed fish
The right wing polluters really got their wish

You see the... lead junk... in the middle...
Lead junk in the middle of the field
Lead junk in the middle of the field
Stinking to high heaven
