The Lyrics

They’re at it again
Have you heard the news?
They’re gonna mess with my car tax
And I’m not amused
How I hate it that the Hummer
I will have to lose
It had me singing the blues
It had me hitting the booze ..but hey

Oh, it’ll be neat boys
It’ll be so cool
If you wanna cut costs
Will you opt for solar
and switch today

Oh, it’ll be neat boys
It'l be so cool
If ya wanna cut costs
Will you opt for solar
and switch today


The garbage police
They are on my case
They are so checking up
On where I throw my waste
I gotta recycle it
there’s no more space
and If I don’t ride my bike
I’ll have ta take a hike but hey

Oh, it’ll be neat boys
it’ll be so cool
If ya wanna cut costs
Will you opt for solar
and switch today

Oh, it’ll be neat boys
it’ll be so cool
If ya wanna cut costs
Will you opt for solar
and switch today

And now I’m carbon free
I got home grown veggies –
such a fresh taste
my own electricity
With a wind turbine
from Home Base

I think of the joy
It’s given me
I realise now
That I was so wrong
Living in the
Lap of luxury
Now this is my song
Will you all sing along

Oh, it’ll be neat boys
it’ll be so cool
If ya wanna cut costs
Will you opt for solar
and switch today

Oh, it’ll be neat boys
it’ll be so cool
If ya wanna cut costs
Will you opt for solar
and switch today

Switching to a green lifestyle is a lot more appealing when it is voluntary, and not government mandated. Well spoofed, Martha!
