Trash Pickup Boogie (lyrics)

“Trash Pickup Boogie”

Rubato

Walkin’ the highway, cars whizzing by

May not get it all, but it’s well worth a try.

Singin’ this song, to keep us movin’ along as

We just bend down and pick it up…

Chorus

Pickup – do the Trash Pickup Boogie now, and

Pickup – bend down and pick it up!

Getting’ in the groove with each and every move as we

Pick it, Pick – it – up, yeah,

Pickup – do the Trash Pickup Boogie now, and

Pickup – bend down and pick it up!

Does a world of good in our neighborhood to just

Pick it, Pick it up!

V1 We see wild white Rose and batchelor button blues,

Ya won’t find a pair but lots of single shoes,

Radiator hose, a plastic cup,

Just bend down and pick ‘em up.

Chorus

V2 A perfect collection of bleached white bones

Leave ‘em alone and they’ll find their way home

But Styrofoam from food that was fast –

Who know just how long that will last?

Musical interlude (Chorus with kazoo & bass boogie piano)

V3 All decked out in matching orange vests,

Sprayed head to toe, to ward off pests.

Just pick up trash with a few of your friends,

Bet you’ll never toss it on the road again…

Chorus x 2

Tag: We see a world of good in our neighborhood

When we pick it – pick it up!
