The Lyrics

Garbage, run away
It really stinks and with that I'm not okay
Garbage, smells like gas
Fling that trash with both hands and hear it crash
Black tar, mayo jar, tube of face cream
Paper, there must be a whole ream

Garbage, it's stacked
Mash it down, Jack, keep it off of the train track
Garbage, take a whiff
Don't live near a landfill, you stupid dimwit
I've got my high-fidelity nose plug, are we past yet?
And I think I need a hair net

Garbage, lotsa grime
Use a trash can and don't trash the slice of my pie
Garbage, so they say
Is consuming lots of land today
But if you ask for fresh air it's no surprise that they've
Gone and made that gray

Spoken: (my own version)
Huhuh! It's on the road, right?
Yes, it's an awful sight
It's certainly on the road
It's definitely in the road, that geezer's Steel Sack was leaking and was oozing
Yeah!
Why does anyone trash anything?
I don't know, it smells like skunk all the time
I was just thinking, what kind of idiot goes to the lake
And throws beer bottles, used diapers, and potato chip bags everywhere?
It comes as a blow to know they just toss their litter out

Both serious and funny, and a good message...I'll throw out three fives

love it...especially the spoken bit...5s

This is better than most Money parodies I've read, with the added bonus of the spoken words at the end.
Royce Miller - May 24, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks, and to Agrimorfee: I think Pink Floyd has great lyrics; one of the most powerful lines I've ever heard is "forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died" ("Us and Them"). When you think about the old style of warfare, and that the front rank just stepped up....wow.
Dove - May 24, 2005 - Report this comment
Mr. Miller, your take on "forward he cried . . ." is extremely off-base. Pink Floyd was stating how useless and senseless war is. You might want to reread the lyrics or re-listen to the song. It's about innocent people dying. They are great lyrics.

Dove---I'm a girl, and I know that the lyrics are great, and are about innocent people dying--------that's exactly what I was trying to say, in my comment.

Don't mind the killjoys, this is good.

Worth every one of the three fives and more. Great job, Royce!
John Jenkins - May 24, 2005 - Report this comment
Well stated, Royce. As ugly as trash and litter are in urban areas, it is even more depressing to see them when backpacking or hiking in out-of-the-way places.
Royce Miller - May 25, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks for the kind comments, and "Dove"---I was thinking about your comment, and I believe that war is always tragic, but is not always senseless. And my gratitude goes to every person that has ever spilled their blood for something they believed in and were willing to fight for.
