The Lyrics

This is a parody of Wham's classic '80s hit, "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," with the lyrics reflecting the importance of proper trash disposal and recycling. After all, nobody likes a "litterbug".
Don't be a litterbug
Don't be a litterbug
Don't be a litterbug
Don't be a litterbug

You were down at Island Beach State Park (the Jersey Shore)
For some fun in the sun from 9 A.M. to dark
But you left a Coke bottle in the sand (you did)
You left it sitting for the seagulls when it slipped from your hand
Well, that's not environmentally friendly
Not even once in a million
Times - you should've thrown it in the trash can by the pavilion
And now some poor critter is dead
Maybe you should've recycled it instead

Take your trash before you go-go
'Cause you know littering is a no-no
Take your trash before you go-go
Better yet, get some recycling mojo
You'll be better off if you're not littering
Take your trash before you go-go
Or why not recycle just like a pro
Take your trash before you go-go
Take your garbage with you
Don't leave that trash behind (yeah, yeah)

If you find a garbage can along your way
Throw out the bags from snacks you ate in PA
If you can recycle something, throw it in the big blue can
'Cause when it comes to littering, I'm not a fan

Don't litter in a state park - it's against the rule
And if you don't recycle, that's not cool
Follow my lead, set things right
Don't throw your trash on the ground tonight

Take your trash before you go-go
'Cause you know littering is a no-no
Take your trash before you go-go
The environment suffers when you leave it behind
Pick up your trash before you go-go
Or why not get some recycling mojo?
Take your trash before you go-go
Recycle it if you can
Take care of your garbage (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Don't be a litterbug
Don't be a litterbug

Be careful, don't litter - don't pay the fine
When you throw a sandwich wrapper onto Route 9
If a critter eats it, the poor thing's dead
So why don't you find a trash can instead

Don't be a litterbug

Take your trash before you go-go
'Cause you know littering is a no-no
Take your trash before you go-go
I don't want you throwing trash onto the road
Take your trash before you go-go
And please find some recycling mojo
Take your trash before you go-go (ah)
Up to Bear Mountain today
Take your trash before you go-go, I've said several times littering is a no-no
(J.C.: Find a trash can, if you can't recycle it).
